GSM, GPRS, EDGE and RAN Optimization Training
GSM/GPRS/EDGE RAN Optimization Training Course – Hands-on
GSM/GPRS/EDGE operators worldwide face the challenge of setting the RAN parameters to achieve optimum network performance. Different equipment vendors choose different approaches to solve the same design, optimization, and tuning problems. Different operators make differing architectural and design choices as well, leading to different parameter configurations. To further add to the complexity, an operator may have equipment from multiple vendors. All this makes it difficult to reduce optimization to simple rules of thumb.
In this GSM, GPRS, EDGE and RAN Optimization Training course, we will study GSM/GPRS/EDGE optimization in all its complexity, including the network parameters for the idle and busy mode of operation, basic and added radio network features and their characteristics, and desired versus actual network performance considering the interaction between the features simultaneously active in a network. The GSM/GPRS/EDGE RAN Optimization training course will conclude with a discussion of real-life design and optimization scenarios.
