Networks: 4G and 5G (network)

This training in the 4G – LTE (Long Term Evolution), LTE Advanced, and 5G network is an opportunity to discover. Understand the strengths of 4G – 5G technologies. The potential for market development that they allow.

Network Goals

At the end of the LTE – 5G training. Trainees will be able to:

  • Describe the main characteristics of the radio interface
  • Situating 4G – 5G technologies in comparison with 2G and 3G technologies
  • Describe the management of quality of service QoS
  • List the main characteristics of a radio system, frequencies, OFDMA, MIMO, Adaptive Antenna
  • Describe the 2G, 3G, 4G cohabitation and its limits, challenges, and issues of deployment
  • Present the applications of current networks, and the breakthrough in innovation represented by 4G – 5G uses and their social and economic consequences
  • Present the applications in the business world

Methods evaluation methods

The theoretical presentations are illustrated with concrete examples and schematic representations. The achievement of goals is recordeded during the course. Throughout the training. Question-answer games and discussions. Making it possible to integrate the basic concepts and to handle them in groups.

A more formal evaluation is done every morning. When to restart the course. In order to affirm the group’s positive results. Each of the trainees. By a game of questions and answers.

An assessment by fun quiz is organized during and at the end of the training.

Course material (approx. 100 pages), color printing. Reproducing the projected slides.
