Fundamentals of Cellular Networks Training

Fundamentals of Cellular Networks Training covers the A-Z of classic and modern cellular networks. The attendees will learn about basic connectivity requirements, planing, building blocks, architecture, design, implementation and performance of end-to-end all the types of cellular networks  from 2G-5G. All operational use cases and sub-systems of the the cellular network including mobile device, connectivity, radio network, transmission network and core network are covered with focus on both practical and theoretical issues.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the classic wireless cellular networks and trends for next generation wireless networks including 4G and 5G
  • Sketch the components, network elements, subsystems and  interfaces of the cellular networks
  • Sketch the components, network elements, subsystems and  interfaces of the cellular networks
  • Define the key features of the cellular networks air interface
  • Walk through the generic mobile device operations including power-up, connectivity and service access setup
  • Explain how uplink and downlink traffic are handled in cellular networks
