Course summary

This course equips engineers with the necessary information to predict and plan capacity requirements in LTE RAN architectures. The course analyzes user plane and control plane services, allowing effective mapping of services to the physical layer, as well as Channel Quality Indication (CQI) and the effect on user plane throughput allowing effective estimations of physical layer resource for service provision. The course also investigates the backhaul requirements for RAN architecture allowing engineers to manage potential bottle-necks in future backhaul networks.

Who would benefit
