Title: 3G RF Optimization Training (UMTS/WCDMA)
The global evolution of mobile technologies, the recent 3G auction in Pakistan and the emerging job opportunities in this area demand trained and skilled HR in the 3G domain. To fulfil this requirement Al-Khawarizmi Institute of Computer Science (KICS), UET Lahore has taken the initiative to serve the industry. Huawei UET Telecom & IT Centre at KICS has arranged training on 3G (UMTS/WCDMA) RF Optimization for its corporate client KomKonsult PVT Limited from 31 st March to 4 th April 2014.
This advanced level training included 3GPP specified interfaces and protocols for 3G UMTS/WCDMA Radio Access Network Architecture with an emphasis on Uu interface. WCDMA transmitter and receiver structures along with multiple algorithms to define UE behaviour in idle and dedicated modes was discussed in compliance with the 3GPP standard. UMTS Handover algorithms and Power control mechanisms contributing to Network congestion control strategies in 3G were covered in detail. Trainees were provided with an exposure to drive testing tools and network KPIs through a sample 3G log file analysis. RAN optimization flow & understanding of troubleshooting case studies through traffic statistics analysis concluded in this training.
It was 5 days training that started from 31 st March and ended on 4 th April. With a positive feedback received from trainees, HUTIC plans to offer such trainings on regular basis which will also augment HUTIC motive of technology transfer and filling the gap between industry and academia.
