backtotop.gifTraining Course Description


  • Course DescriptionThis course addresses the needs of technical engineering staff who work on the design, test, integration and validation of LTE-Advanced equipment, both network and UE-side.
  • The course provides a thorough review of LTE-releases 8 and 9 before jumping deep into everything you need to understand about design details and system engineering in LTE-Advanced.
  • Starting out with the details of carrier aggregation, the following chapters are dedicated to all LTE-Advanced features like the new MIMO-modes, HetNet-operation, the integration and operation of relay nodes, the improvements with eICIC and feICIC and a detailed description of the new features with Rel 12 and their realization like for instance "new carrier type", MTC and D2D.

Some of your questions that will be answered

  • Which carrier aggregation scenarios have been defined in Rel 10, 11 and 12?
  • Will SRVCC in the direction from LTE to 2G / 3G become applicable and how does this compare to CSFB?
  • How do remote radio heads (RRH) compare to WiFi-hotspots?
  • What is the basic difference between WiFi offloading with IFOM and SIPTO?
  • What is an EPDCCH and how does it operate?
  • How does CoMP operate in downlink and uplink direction and which advantages does it yield for HetNet operation?
  • Which new features will be coming with Rel 12 like for instance D2D or MTC?
  • Which new transmission modes are introduced with LTE-Advanced and which new options do they offer for the new MIMO-modes?
  • What is the relationship between SRVCC and IMS Service Centralization and Continuity (SCC)?
  • Do we need to prepare for ZUC as new stream cipher?
  • How does the UE convey its carrier aggregation related capabilities to the network?
  • Which new procedures does feICIC yield compared to previous versions of this feature packet?
  • Why is there a new PUCCH-format 3 and what does it offer compared to previously defined PUCCH-formats?

backtotop.gifWho should attend this class?

  • The course is targeted at engineers and technicians who are involved in the design, integration and test of of LTE-Advanced equipment.


  • The student should possess detailed knowledge about LTE in Rel 8 and 9, particular about the physical layer.
  • We recommend to book our course LTE from A-Z beforehand.
