As UMTS proliferates worldwide, there’s a growing demand for a good, strong course on UMTS. This UMTS Training course is that. In this UMTS course, you will learn the architecture and operation of UMTS-FDD as it impacts the design and optimization of a UMTS-FDD network.

We will begin the UMTS course with a close look at the architecture of a UMTS network, with an emphasis on the FDD mode. We will learn about both the optional and mandatory features of UMTS-FDD. We will also discuss the relationships between the logical channels, transport channels, and physical channels in a good deal of depth. All of this will allow you to exploit the technology’s strengths to come up with better network designs, troubleshoot performance problems, and identify solution approaches. It will also help you interface with vendors more effectively.
