Course Description

Telecoms Open Courses

4G/LTE Radio Planning & Optimisation - 3-month Distance Programme

This three-month online programme is for those who need to improve their understanding of the specialised techniques that are used to plan a 4G cellular network that is both advanced and efficient.

The course is split into three modules. Each of them lasts a month. Each module incorporates courseware that includes live tutor, led webinars, exercises, self-test assessments and hands-on planning simulations. In the planning simulations, participants will use Mentum Planet from InfoVista, an industry-leading tool for radio planning.

Participants in this course will gain the following skills:

  • Confidently and effectively plan an efficient 4G / LTE Radio network
  • Contribute to radio planning, the deployment debate and decision-making within the organisation
  • Evaluate implementation options for deploying 4G / LTE radio networks – either in green-field scenarios, or as part of an existing multi-RAT (Radio Access Technology) system
  • Use the benefits and increased radio performance that 4G / LTE brings to the cellular operator in various scenarios to full advantage including different spectrum allocations, terrain characteristics, user densities and profiles, deployment options, operating modes and indoor/outdoor situations
  • Develop radio network solutions in a more holistic way such as using the in-built flexibility of the 4G network to design efficient multi-RAT and Het-Net solutions
  • A solid foundation in the advanced radio features of LTE Advanced, and how they can and should be used to maximise efficiency and overall Return on Investment (ROI)
  • Improved confidence to use advanced radio-planning tools in order to maximise efficiency in the radio planning process
  • Make decisions on technology implementation and procurement that are commercially viable, minimise risk, and are in line with the strategy and goals of the wider organization

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Those who successfully complete the course will be awarded a certificate of completion
