backtotop.gifTraining Course Description

Course Description

  • This training course is targeted for all engineers and technicians who need to gain an expert knowledge about the key functions of HSDPA like AMC (Adaptive Modulation and Coding) or HARQ (Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request)
  • The training course focuses on the necessary extensions of the UTRAN architecture in NodeB and UE which are required for HSDPA. Another focus is on the protocol enhancements like MAC-hs or on the frame protocols on Iub/Iur interface.
  • Special emphasis is put on NodeB’s and UE’s physical layer aspects, which allow a higher user data throughput far beyond conventional 384kbit/s.
As in all INACON training courses we integrated several interactive exercises for a perfect learning experience.

Some of your questions that will be answered

  • What are the advantages for the subscriber using HSDPA capable UEs?
  • What are the implications of using 16-QAM-modulation?
  • How do HARQ and Packet Scheduling work?
  • What are the differences between IR and Chase Combining?
  • How is Rate Matching performed with HS-DSCH?
  • How exactly works AMC (Adaptive Modulation and Coding)?
  • Under what circumstances are QPSK or 16QAM used?
  • What are the impacts of HSDPA in Iub & Iur User and Control Plane?
  • What adaptations are required on the UE and network side to provide for HSDPA?
  • What is the idea behind CQI reporting and why can the NodeB still pursuit a downlink BLER of about 20% reaching maximum throughput?
  • How is the user's mobility maintained in HSDPA?
  • How do Softhandover and HSDPA cell change go along?
