5G (SA) RAN Signaling and Operations Part 6: Handover and Idle Mode
5G_216d | On-Demand | 5G Access | 2
Course Duration: 4 hours
This is the sixth course in a six-course set of self-paced courses encompassing 5G SA RAN Signaling and Operations! In this course, you will learn about mobility in a 5G standalone network. You will explore beam switching and handover for connected devices as well as cell reselection for devices with an idle or inactive cell connection. Each course in this six-course set can stand on its own or can be combined with other courses as necessary to meet your learning objectives.
Intended Audience
5G RAN and device engineering, operations, and performance related job functions
After completing this course, the learner will be able to:
■ Step through the connected mode handovers based on Xn interface
■ Identify various handover events and related measurement parameters and reports
■ Step through the Idle and Inactive mode mobility and related procedure
■ Explore RRC signaling messages and parameters for connected and Idle mode handovers
