5G RF Planning and Design Part 4: Design Process and Tools
5G_231d | On-Demand | 5G Access | 2
Course Duration: 4 hours
This is the fourth course in a four-course set of self-paced courses encompassing 5G RF Planning and Design. In this course, you will learn about 5G RF parameter planning and the impacts of NSA to the RF design. You will also learn about using RF planning tools for 5G RF design including KPIs and 5G site selection. Each course in this four-course set can stand on its own or can be combined with other courses as necessary to meet your learning objectives.
Intended Audience
RF planning and design and performance optimization engineers
After completing this course, the learner will be able to:
■ Step through the planning process for different RF configuration and operational parameters
