Course Objectives

Over the past decade, cellular radio networks have evolved into multi-band, multi-RAT heterogeneous systems which consist of tens of thousands of cells with hundreds of settings in each of them. Meanwhile, the mobile telecommunications industry has gone through a cost-reduction process resulting in significant job cuts. This means that efficient network management is extremely challenging and has to be done by fewer staff than ever before.

In these circumstances, without proper tools, even the most skilled engineers must focus on vital matters, leaving undone many important tasks. As a result, many experienced LTE networks operate solely on the basis of default configuration -- and those default parameter settings might not always be optimal.

This E-UTRAN/LTE SON (R8-R12) training introduces Self-Organising Network (SON) features as the proper tool to address these problems. All aspects of SON, including self-configuration, self-optimisation, and self-healing are described as defined in different releases of LTE standard (R8-R12).
