Transmission Network Planning for GSM, UMTS and LTE

Course Description

The course “Transmission Network Planning for GSM, UMTS and LTE” covers transmission media used as bearer network between nodes in WCDMA. It is described how to calculate the extra transmission capacity which HSPA and LTE requires. The Transmission Network Planning covers the nominal planning, the detailed planning as well as the principles for network design. Focus is set on the WCDMA Systems Core Network and the Evolved Packet Core, EPC.  Microwave links, leased line and SDH optical equipment are studied. IP is used as the transport layer technology. If required, migration scenarios from ATM to IP can be included.
