backtotop.gifTraining Course Description


  • This interactive training course addresses the needs of non-technical people who need to understand the basic principles of mobile radio for their daily business.
  • In that respect, we start with a general description of the wireless channel and a clear definition of mobile operation versus e.g. wireless LAN or fixed wireless.
  • The students more or less autonomously work out themselves the underlying network architecture and the general operation of mobile networks.
  • The training course continues with the presentation of the most important mobile networking standards like GSM, cdma1, UMTS or cdma2000. This part also contains an overview about the different mobile networking generations from 1G to 4G.
  • In the next sections we illustrate standard procedures like call setup and handover, always considering the non-technical audience’s scope.
  • The training course also explains the differences between the different multiple access technologies FDMA, TDMA and CDMA and it illustrates the next generation’s multiple access technology OFDMA.
  • The training course ends with an outlook towards the upcoming future of mobile communication, considering the various consequences for the service offerings, for the handset look and feel and the network layout.
As in all INACON training courses we integrated several interactive exercises for a perfect learning experience.
