LTE Physical Layer

admin

The full processing chain “from IP-packet to radio wave” is covered (including also layer 2 functions). Physical layer procedures such as cell search, random access, scheduling and hybrid-ARQ are described.

3GPP Mobile Systems Overview (2 days)

admin

The 3GPP Mobile Systems Overview course describes four generations of 3GPP systems from the voice-centric GSM via UMTS to later developments such as high-speed Mobile Broadband, LTE, IMS, VoLTE and the emerging 5G System.

3GPP Mobile Systems Overview (4 days)

admin

The 4-day 3GPP Mobile System Overview course describes all the currently used “generations” of mobile (cellular) networks standardized by 3GPP.

SS7 Signalling in Mobile Networks

admin

The SS7 Signalling in Mobile Networks course explains and describes the world’s most widespread inter-exchange signalling system used in fixed and mobile telecommunication today: Signalling System No 7. It provides the basic ideas and structure of the SS7 protocol stack. Different aspects of various signalling protocols and signalling applications in the telecommunications world are covered. There are a few detailed examples from both mobile and fixed networks.

LTE/EPC System Overview

admin

The LTE/EPC System Overview course offers a comprehensive – yet easily understandable – overview of the basic functionality of the Evolved Packet System (EPS). EPS consists of the evolved Radio Access Network (E-UTRAN) and the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as defined in the 3GPP Releases 8 up to Release 11 standardisation projects ‘Long Term Evolution’ and ‘System Architecture Evolution’.

LTE Signalling

admin

The course offers a solid understanding of the layer 2 (L2) and layer 3 (L3) signalling protocols as well as the physical layer (L1) defined for the evolved radio access network (E-UTRAN). The course focuses on the radio interface and the S1-interface but includes also relevant information pertaining to the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) in order to give the student a comprehensive end-to-end view of the most important signalling scenarios.

EPC Signalling

admin

The EPC Signalling course describes the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as standardized by 3GPP in technical specifications. The course accounts for the network architecture, logical functions (nodes) and signalling protocols in EPC, primarily with E-UTRAN access. Message-level traffic cases (signalling flows) are used throughout the course to illustrate the use of EPC protocols.

Diameter in 3GPP Networks

admin

The course describes the Diameter protocol and particularly the use of Diameter in 3GPP Networks.
