Who Should Attend?

This training is an excellent choice for engineers and managers who are already familiar with LTE/EPS and need to learn about the most fundamental E-UTRAN counters and KPIs that should be available in every vendor implementation. This knowledge can be a basis for further self- or instructor-led studies of E-UTRAN performance management. It is also useful for engineers who are not directly responsible for E-UTRAN but would like an overview of E-UTRAN measurements (e.g. EPC/CN, IMS/VoLTE/RCS engineers).

Course Objectives

This training presents standard R8-R12 E-UTRAN counters and KPIs that are comparable across all vendors’ implementations. Each counter is described in the system-wide context of procedures and configuration parameters impacting its value.

Please note that only standard counters and KPIs are covered. This training should not be considered as an alternative to similarly-titled trainings offered by equipment vendors, since standard counters are just a small fraction of the total number of counters available in real equipment. The counters covered in this training can, however, be used to benchmark E-UTRAN areas served by eNBs from different manufacturers.

 

Prerequisites

The participants should be familiar with basic aspects of mobile network architecture and services. Background knowledge of LTE is highly recommended.
