Terry S. Cory MSEE, EE
Much has been written about the 4G technologies and the intricacies of the architectures and functional characteristics. Most attempts to learn more soon bury the inquirer in a morass of acronyms, special definitions, and diagrams. This course does not do this. Instead, it addresses the very practical RF design of a 4G air interface to target user traffic and address the market needs. This course distills the requirements of the two major HSPA+ and LTE technologies into a common design process that will work for either.
The air interface defines both the quality and capacity of a 4G wireless network. The optimum 3G or 4G network is different from the optimum 2G network; yet, most upgrades build on an existing 2G site topology—a truly non-optimum beginning. This course enables the student/attendee to visualize, establish, and implement a viable air interface RF engineering upgrade process for site additions. including antenna selection and orientation.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
