CDMA2000 Radio Access

2 Days / 4 Live Online Sessions (0900-1230) / Technical Level: Level 3

Course Code: MB2103

Course Summary

This course begins with an overview of CDMA2000™ origins, the key standardization work as well as general network architecture. The course continues with an engineering overview of CDMA operation in a 3G context; one of the underpinning technologies and is followed by a brief review of cdmaOne™.

Who would benefit
