  • We can adapt this UMTS QoS course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this UMTS QoS course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the UMTS QoS 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 UMTS QoS Training course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.

Upon completing this UMTS QoS Training course, learners will be able to meet these objectives:
