Duration 1 Day

LTE (Long Term Evolution) represents the next major evolutionary step for GSM/UMTS networks. It has the potential both to raise the network access capabilities to a new level and to move operators much closer to the total communications converged network vision. This workshop provides a high-level insight into the design aims, operation and business implications of both the new radio access technology LTE and its associated all-IP core network, the EPC. The workshop covers the many new possibilities for service types and market sectors that LTE brings along with consideration of the requirements for service provision. This intensive one-day workshop comprises seven elements that guide the delegate through technology specifics, system capabilities and market applicability for LTE. This is achieved through a carefully assembled combination of easy to absorb information and thought provoking class exercises. The workshop begins with a description of what LTE is and what it is intended to do. This is then developed through theory and exercise work enabling delegates to think critically and constructively about who would use LTE, how they would use LTE and how LTE fits into a wide range of telecommunications market scenarios.


This workshop is designed for non-technical professionals who may have little or no technical background. However, any knowledge delegates have of the telecommunications market may be useful in workshop activity sessions.

Delegates will learn how to

outline the evolutionary path being taken by 2G/3G networks and relate this to the capability objectives for LTE describe the basic structure and features of an LTE access and core network identify the key advantages provided by LTE compared with other mobile technologies discuss the main factors that affect the 'speed' of a mobile data connection and recognize the performance potential of LTE explain the importance of the all-IP and 'flat' architecture concepts that are a core feature of LTE discuss the methods provided to allow voice communication to take place via an LTE network outline the LTE rollout options for new and existing network operators and demonstrate an understanding of the cost implications for LTE discuss the likely set of users, services and markets on which the technology advantages of LTE can be brought to bear most readily list the main companies that will be involved in all aspects for supply and support for LTE equipment outline the role played by the wide range of Internet-based communications services and their relationship with LTE discuss the potential opportunities for network operators to implement network sharing agreements and outline some of the benefits and disadvantages list the key features of the emerging LTE Advanced network specification and identify applications for access speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s


A non-technical introduction and overview of the complete LTE system, known as the Evolved Packet System (EPS), including the system capabilities, general structure and operation as well as its position as a development of current systems. The course also covers the place LTE holds in the telecoms market and how LTE is developing.
