Why this LTE Signalling course?

This is a specialised and detailed two day course which covers the major area of LTE’s (Long Term Evolution) Signalling.
LTE, Long Term Evolution, is defined as Release 8 of the 3GPP specifications, consisting of the eUTRAN and the SAE /EPC.
There are a considerable number of protocols and signalling messages being passed during system operation, between Uu and eUTRAN as well as between eUTRAN and EPC. This three day course describes the overall protocol structure before focussing on specific protocols including LTE to Ue protocols including PDCP, RRC, RLC and MAC, the inter-eNodeB protocol X2, the S1 protocol between the E-UTRAN and the evolved packet core and the evolved GTP for LTE.

LTE Signalling Training Course Objectives

On completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand Non Access Stratum Signalling
  • Be aware of MAC Procedures across the Ue and UTRAN
  • Appreciate the roles of Radio Link Control (RLC)l, Radio Resource Control (RRC) and Packet Data Convergence Protocol (PDCP)
  • Be able to follow message sequences on the S1 and X2 interfaces
  • Appreciate interworking with earlier non-LTE 3GPP releases

Who should attend this LTE Signalling course

  • Delegates needing an in-depth understanding of the area of LTE’s (Long Term Evolution) signalling
  • Telecom professionals working in the areas of LTE hardware and software development
  • LTE system engineering and in the testing and verification field
  • Such delegates would be employed or contracted to:
    • Operators
    • Manufacturers
    • Integrators
    • Regulators

LTE Signalling Course Pre-requisites

Delegates are expected to have a good knowledge of UMTS and/or LTE but no RF knowledge is required.

Lifetime Post-Course Support

After completing this LTE Signalling training course, delegates receive lifetime post-training support from LEVER Technology Group, to help them apply the technologies and skills they have learned with us, to provide career-long support, and to ensure they are better equipped for their future roles in IT and networking.
