Course summary

This course aims to provide a technical overview of the main cellular technologies 2G (GSM), 3G (UMTS), 4G (LTE) and 5G in one package. 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 and services.

Who would benefit

This course is suitable for engineering, technical sales, technical management and other staff who require a general technical overview of mobile technologies but who do not need to invest the time necessary to learn about each technology in depth.
