Upon completing this CDMA2000 Fundamentals Training course, learners will be able to meet these objectives:

  • Upon completing this course the participant will be able to define CDMA2000 in a 3G context, understand how CDMA2000 (1x, 1xEV-DO, and 1xEV-DV) enhances IS-95 networks, list its new services, explain its key aspects and capabilities as an access network, find information in appropriate documents, and suggest its likely evolution into the 3G world.
  • The detailed descriptions of the radio interface as an elaborate extension of the IS-95 Access Network, the MAC, LAC, and RLP sub-layers, and the behavior of the system offered in the course should allow the participant to, for example, understand dimensioning procedures and predict the consequences of various configurations.
  • We can adapt this CDMA2000 Fundamentals Training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this CDMA2000 Fundamentals course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the CDMA2000 Fundamentals course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the CDMA2000 Fundamentals Training course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.
