Do you need a broad understanding of mobile communications without the investment of studying each technology individually?
The Wray Castle 2G to 4G Mobile Technologies course provides a detailed overview of the mobile technologies in use today, as well as a glimpse into the future.
It provides a clear view of the most important aspects of cellular communication technologies and how the principles are applied within the different generations as networks evolve from providing basic GSM services, through to supporting an increasingly complex set of connection requirements.
One of the recognised difficulties with technical training is the plethora of acronyms and abbreviations. This course aims to demystify the technology and clearly explain the meanings behind the terminology.
Each technology is discussed in detail in chronological order beginning with 2G GSM. Starting with the initial concept, the specifications, the radio spectrum, the network architecture and the network operation. Mandatory information for those that require technical detail. As GSM matured packet data was introduced, an important evolutionary step towards 3G UMTS.
UMTS is then treated with the same thorough level of detail and charts the development of UMTS as a broadband mobile technology. The reasons why UMTS is able to deliver broadband data services is down to the choice of radio technology and advancements in antenna techniques. These systems are clearly explained during the course. UMTS has evolved to the point where download speeds have reached tens of megabits per second. To go even faster UMTS has evolved into LTE.
The 4G technology is treated in the same way as the two previous generations. The student will see how LTE is also evolving to address not just data rates but a variety of important applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and mission critical communications and providing a clear pathway to 5G.
