4G LTE Planning Training and Certification


RF planning is a process of assigning frequencies, transmitter locations, and parameters of wireless communication systems to provide coverage and capacity. This in-depth LTE Radio network planning course significantly improves the participants understanding of the issues and techniques used to plan an advanced 4G cellular network . This course covers all planning topics including coverage planning, frequency planning, PCI planning, link budget and propagation models. This course will help to understand concepts those are related to plan an advanced LTE network including tracking area planning, indoor planning, equipment related parameters, PRACH planning. After this course, professionals will be able to plan a 4G LTE network.

In LTE systems, coverage and capacity are interrelated to one another. To improve coverage in system, some capacity has to be sacrificed and vice-versa. The LTE RF planning process is mainly categorized into four phases : Initial RF link budget, detailed RF propagation modelling, fine tuning and optimisation and continuous optimization. RF planning procedure uses RF link budget along with propagation models to approximate the coverage of planned sites and to determine how many sites are required for RF communication systems. Automatic planning tools are often employed in this phase to perform. List of outputs in this phase, number of sites and site locations, antenna directions and tilts, neighbor cell lists, neighbor, frequency plan, RSRP, RSRQ, best CINR, best server areas, uplink and downlink throughput.

This course of LTE planning, covers the planning parameters of a LTE network. It describes the planning process including TA, PCI, and PRACH planning. After initial link budget estimations, the next phase is RF planning of LTE RAN . it is a complex and interactive process that includes but is not limited to the number of stages. Planning models include COST-231, Hata, Erceg-Greenstein etc. Planning models depends on the area and each type of environment like Urban, rural and suburban areas. The phase of continuous optimization of the RF plan to accommodate for changes in the environment.
