3G Optimization Training and Certification


The first stage in optimization process is data collection which is mainly achieved through drive test process. Various Key Performance Indicators are required to be monitored to identify the problems in the network. KPI are call drop rate, call failure rate, handover failure rate, handover success rate etc. for optimization engineer determine the appropriate antenna down tilt and bearing and adjusts accordingly. In most of the cases, urban areas have high values of the downtilt than other areas. After data collection, there is coverage analysis process , analysis of Ec/No , FER etc . After analysis of problems and providing appropriate solutions to those issues is optimization process.Once the parameter optimization is done for voice, the next are video telephony and PS data service. During the optimization of PS data service, the importance of good RF optimization will be apparent when channel switching is considered.

This course of UMTS optimization covers the description of optimization of networks, coverage analysis, throughput analysis etc. Optimization process starts with pre optimization process, RF optimization, service optimization (AMR) , service optimization (CS and PS) , commercial launch and continuous optimization. RF optimization mainly focus on RF configurations . Voice optimization focus on improving the call setup. Inter system change optimization is optional. service optimization is needed to refine the parameter selection (cell selection, reselection, handovers)

This course is an introduction to the principles and techniques that relate to the parameters available in 3G UMTS RAN ( Radio Access network ). This course includes cell configurations, ideal mode , connected mode parameters , key performance indicators. This course will help to learn various optimization solutions , analysis of radio and call drop issues, and various coverage improvement techniques. This course will help you to learn various problems in the UMTS network and solution of the issues. This will help optimizers those who are intended for testing of UMTS systems.
