Course Objectives
HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) and HSUPA (High Speed Uplink Packet Access) are the next big steps in upgrading WCDMA/UMTS networks. These two new radio capabilities enable a new set of packet-based services to go wireless in an efficient way. This training concentrates on the differences that HSDPA/HSUPA has brought to WCDMA radio access. (More detailed information about WCDMA radio can be obtained from other courses.)

Intermediate knowledge of WCDMA/UMTS.
