Get an introduction to radio access network (RAN) optimization
When planning network coverage and capacity, communication service providers consider certain constraints and subscriber behaviour. When the network goes live, the real-life behaviour is often different.
The process of adjusting the radio access network (RAN) settings to provide the desired performance, coverage and capacity is called radio frequency (RF) or radio network optimization.
This online course will show you practical, real-life methods and approaches to radio network optimization, based on years of experience gained by Amdocs engineers around the world.
This course is designed for anyone who wants to understand the principles of RF optimization in cellular networks.
It is recommended for engineers, technicians and managers who are new to RF and require applicable skills in RF for monitoring and optimizing performance of wireless systems.
A basic knowledge of cellular networks, RF principles and antenna theory will be useful.
MOOCs stand for Massive Open Online Courses. These arefree online courses from universities around the world (eg. StanfordHarvardMIT) offered to anyone with an internet connection.
