pdf_gross.gifHSPA+ Made Simple

WBT Description

  • This Web Based Training addresses the needs of engineers who need to get familiar with advanced developments in the field of HSPA+/eHSPA.
  • In the beginning of the Web Based Training HSDPA and HSUPA are compared to HSPA+.
  • The Web Based Training continues with the elaboration of background and implementation of important release 7 key technologies like MIMO, higher order modulation schemes (4-PAM, 16-QAM, and 64-QAM), Continuous Packet Connectivity (CPC), layer 2 improvements, and RRC state operation enhancements.
  • The next part looks into release 8 HSPA+ and works on features like 64-QAM together with MIMO and DL IC.
  • The final chapter is dedicated to selected important scenarios of HSPA+ RRC state operation enhancements.
