This workshop provides insights into the symptoms and possible causes of field performance issues in LTE radio networks using UE logs. RF measurements related to coverage and interference are discussed to analyze coverage holes and overlapping regions. Students analyze LTE signaling messages through UE logs and map them to success and failure events. Students perform root cause analysis and gain an in-depth understanding of these signaling events to network performance. LTE RF optimisation areas such as RRC connection setup, bearer drops, coverage issues.

The LTE Network is an evolution of the 3GPP system architecture with the vision of an all-IP network finally realized. 3GPP defines the Policy and Charging Control (PCC) Architecture to support all aspects of dynamic QoS management, Policy Control and Charging for the LTE network. This course provides a detailed look at the PCC architecture and signaling procedures. The course is framed in the context of LTE Networks and how PCC provides the policies and controls to support IP-CAN bearer management and charging. The course starts with a brief review of the LTE EPC to set the context.

LTE RF optimization areas such as downlink and uplink throughput analysis are addressed.

Cloud Computing IaaS brings speed, agility, scalability, and availability with lower CapEx and OpEx. This hands-on OpenStack workshop is conducted in a Production Communication Service Provider context and the role OpenStack plays in NFV and SDN networks. Hands-on operational exercises are provided with detailed explanations of OpenStack’s component implementation, NFV proposes to leverage standard IT virtualization technology to consolidate network equipment types onto industry standard high volume servers, switches and storage.

Competitive advantages of business agility drives the need for responsive and flexible IT infrastructure; which can be slow and expensive. The lead time to procure, install, configure, and commission new hardware can take weeks. Cloud Computing IaaS brings speed, agility, scalability, and availability with lower CapEx and OpEx.
