HSUPA, HSPA Evolved & LTE

Course Description

The mobile operators need to address the customers’ continuous demand for higher data capacity and higher peak rates. The course “HSPA, HSPA Evolved and LTE” details the HSPA technology currently implemented in most networks as well as the path towards higher capacity and peak rates. Among many other topics, the course brings up e g how the different radio access networks will work with the future Evolved Packet Core Network (EPC).
