Troubleshooting LTE RAN Training – UE Based

Troubleshooting LTE RAN Training is a UE based training course covering LTE network architecture, LTE air interface signaling procedures and methods, and LTE UE troubleshooting.

Troubleshooting LTE RAN Training course covers many important call scenarios of the LTE RAN by analyzing and exploring signaling messages and parameters including system access, initial attach, authentication, Tracking Area Update, default/dedicated bearer setup, connectivity, handovers, inter-RAT operations, OTT, LTE and WiFi Interworking, SMS, video, etc.

Troubleshooting LTE RAN Training is a comprehensive training course on the call procedures of LTE RAN, signaling, troubleshooting and optimization. The course signaling and procedures of LTE explaining essential topics include LTE features from UE’s perspective, RRC signaling, RAN parameters, performance measurement counters, radio quality and user plane quality, reference points, protocol stacks, information elements, elementary procedures and troubleshooting cases.  This course enables the attendees to understand the signaling procedures and parameters that need to be analyzed when monitoring LTE networks

This course takes a detailed look at various call scenarios of the LTE radio network using signaling messages and related parameters.
