LTE SON Training Description

LTE SON Training, Self-Organizing Networks (SON) training course covers all aspects of a SON-enabled system including technologies, planning, design, architecture, operation and maintenance. LTE SON training introduces self-optimization, self-configuration and self-healing of LTE and LTE-Advanced Networks.

Learn about LTE SON drivers, requirements,  challenges, enabling technologies, architectures, trends,  core network, and end-to-end operational for a SON-enabled LTE system and beyond.

Topics include:

  • LTE and LTE-Advanced network architecture
  • SON framework, use cases and architectures
  • Automated (plug & play) connectivity setup
  • SON operation in both the Evolved Packet Core (EPC)
  • SON operation in Multi-RAT operational scenarios
  • Self-planning/configuration, self-deployment and fault management
  • 3GPP Management Reference Model
  • Coverage and Capacity Optimization (CCO)
  • Mobility Load Balancing (MLB)
  • Mobility Robustness Optimization (MRO)
  • Inter-cell interference coordination (ICIC)
  • Minimization of Drive Tests (MTD)
  • SON in Evolved Packet Core (EPC)
  • SON evolution to Cognitive Radio Networks (CRN)
