The HSPA (HSDPA/HSUPA) Optimization Training course teaches the protocols and procedures for network optimization based on log file analysis and common optimization scenarios. The increasing prevalence of mobile broadband coupled with the promise of inexpensive data-based applications such as Mobile VoIP has made a course such as this mandatory for every UMTS  professional. In this course, you will undertake an in-depth study of the workings of  HSDPA/HSUPA in a UMTS network and learn to optimize HSPA networks by studying real-life deployment scenarios. Covered are the optimization of web browsing, data/voice systems, streaming, and mobile VoIP. The optimization methodology employed in class will use log files, hardware, and software tools – some of which are based on open-source software.
