Why should you choose TONEX for your LTE Training 101?

LTE Training 101,  delivers true mobile broadband for the masses with a superior user experience. LTE provides improved performance, lower total cost of ownership and enables a new era of personalized services.

TONEX LTE (Long Term Evolution) covers the technical details of the next-generation network beyond 3G.

LTE Planning 101

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a 4th generation wireless network technology based on OFDM and MIMO. It provides much higher data rates (over 100 Mbps) to users while reducing the cost-per-bit for service providers.

This two day course provides an overview of LTE from both application and technical aspects. It gives an overview of the LTE/E-UTRAN network architecture, the underlying technologies, and call setup procedures.
