HSPA training course contents
UMTS architecture, components, interfaces, protocols, W-CDMA, standards, 3GPPr5, 3GPPr6, evolution to HSDPA and HSPA.
What is HSDPA, what is HSUPA, key features, system capacities, data rates, delays. Key concepts: Adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), QPSK, 16QAM, HARQ, MAC-hs, multiplexing, subframes.
Logical, transport, physical channels, dedicated vs. shared channels, HS-PDSCH, HS-SCCH, HS-DPCCH, code multiplexing, E-DCH, Enhanced DPCCH.
Controlling HS-DSCH, flow control, buffering, priority queues, packet scheduling, fast packet scheduling, Selecting modulation and coding. HARQ: Packet retransmissions, Incremental redundancy, comparison with ARQ, TFRC. MAC-d, MAC-c/sh, MAC-hs, MAC-es, MAC-e.
HSDPA in the Radio Access Network (RAN), reuse of existing UMTS components, changes required, Impact on Iub/Iur interfaces, new and modified NBAP procedures, backwards compatibility.
Packet data session setup, simultaneous voice and data, QoS, TCP flow control, WCDMA packet scheduler, mobility procedures.
HSPA phase 2 (3GPP r6)
What is evolved HSPA? Speeds. Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO). Optional all IP architecture. R8 and LTE.
Why Choose Us
SNT trainers score an average of over 90% on the three main areas of:
- Ability to teach
- Technical knowledge
- Answering questions
We limit our maximum class size to 8 delegates; often we have less than this. This ensures optimal interactivity between delegates and instructor.
"Excellent course. The small class size was a great benefit…" M.B. IBM
We write our own courses; courseware does not just consist of slides and our slides are diagrams not bullet point text. A typical chapter provides clearly defined objectives with a chapter overview, slides with text underneath, a quiz at the end to check the learning of the students. Hands on exercises are at the end and are used to reinforce the theory.
