LTE Capacity Planning Training

LTE Capacity Planning Training covers LTE Capacity Planning and Dimensioning to ensure SLAs and Quality of Service are fully fulfilled in the LTE networks including services such as VoLTE, ViLTE, OTT, M2M and IoT.

LTE Capacity Planning training covers the theory and best practices of LTE dimensioning to ensure a Quality User Experience while lowering CAPEX. Traffic capacity planning in LTE is a challenging task considering multiple input multiple output (MIMO) & orthogonal frequency division (OFDM) based long term evolution (LTE) mobile networks.

LTE Capacity Planning Training presents the key practical aspects for capacity and coverage planning of a commercial LTE network.  This training course introduces best practices in LTE capacity planning, network planning, dimensioning and design.

LTE Capacity Planning Training provides many powerful tools for LTE network planners, designers, PM to model and calculate efficient, accurate and professional capacity planning process outcome.
