Advanced UMTS/HSPA Indoor Planning

Course Description

As data traffic is growing in UMTS R99/HSPA networks, there is an increasing demand of continuous cell planning and optimization. In a mature network, the macro layer usually provides sufficient outdoor coverage. But in order to be able to support indoor users with data-rates anywhere close to what is promised by operators, it is very important to plan appropriate indoor The course Advanced UMTS/HSPA Indoor Planning is developed for UMTS R99/HSPA planners who want to understand how to plan, dimension, implement and optimize UMTS R99/HSPA indoor systems.

The trainer has extensive personal experience from optimizing UMTS R99/HSPA macro networks as well as indoor systems.
