LTE to 5G NR NSA migration workshop   is mainly aimed at a technical audience. It is suitable for technical professionals, RAN operators, Radio planning engineers, Technical managers who currently are or will be involved in LTE to 5G NR NSA RAN transformation for combined LTE and NSA network co-existence and deployments.

Prerequisites: Those wishing to take this course should have a good and solid understanding of LTE network ad well as 5G network overview.

Course Review

This LTE(4G) training course introduces the audience into the existing LTE technology and the highly demanded 5G NR NSA architecture, emphasizing on the network transformation to properly accommodate the transformation from LTE to NSA deployment. It explains the NSA architecture, the EPC core transformation to 5G EPC and the subsequent firmware demands. The transport network topology is also discussed with emphasis on back-haul deployment. The transport network topology is also discussed with emphasis on both front-haul and back-haul deployment. The course is based on theoretical slide presentations with good excel calculator exercises and log-file analysis.
