Product Description
“GPRS/EDGE Planning & Optimizing Principles”

Course Code



This is an advanced course to General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and its evolution Enhanced GPRS (EGPRS) or Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE).

The GPRS/EDGE Planning & Optimizing Principles course provides advanced knoweledge in planning initially GPRS/EDGE resources and later on optimizing network performance, both in the radio technology (GSM & WCDMA including EDGE & HSPA) and the core network. Optimization might be performed using parameters, statistics/KPI’s or drive tests

Also case studies, project descriptions and exercises will be presented enlighting more the basic principles of this topic
