LTE Signalling and Protocols

Training Course Outline

Course Duration:
3 Days

Training Course Description:
LTE, Long Term Evolution, as defined as Release 8 of the 3GPP specifications, consists of the eUTRAN and the SAE /EPC. There are a considerable number of protocols and signalling messages being passed during system operation, between Uu and eUTRAN as well as between eUTRAN and EPC.

This three day course describes the overall protocol structure before focussing on specific protocols. The protocols examined include LTE to Ue protocols including PDCP, RRC, RLC and MAC, the inter-eNodeB protocol X2, the S1 protocol between the E-UTRAN and the evolved packet core and the evolved GTP for LTE.

This course is intended for telecom professionals working in the areas of LTE hardware and software development, LTE system engineering and in the testing and verification field.

Delegates are expected to have a good knowledge of UMTS and/or LTE but no RF knowledge is required.

This course includes the following modules:
