Suitable for: This course is designed for planning engineers working for network operators, cell planning consultancies and software tool manufacturers that wish to move into GSM optimization. Although most students attending this course will have practical planning experience it is possible to progress directly to optimization if the theoretical knowledge is in place. This course is also useful for students who will be working in optimizationrelated areas or who need to understand GSM air interface parameters. This includes network management, Government security or forensic work, legal professionals supporting network operators or local authorities, support staff and those managing optimization teams.

Course programme

GSM is the most admired standard for mobile telephony systems in the world. The GSM standard has been an advantage to both consumers, who may advantage from the aptitude to travel and switch carriers without replacing phones, and also to network operators, who can choose equipment from many GSM equipment vendors. This course provides you with knowledge on strategies pertaining to GSM optimization; providing you practical knowledge related to GSM optimization and sets of numerical exercises for students to practice.
