Course Overview:

With the Advent of 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) in last few years, broadband services like video streaming have added value to mobile communication networks. Even though, some organizations like law enforcement agencies, airports, fire departments, Public Metros etc. that need guaranteed communication public safety networks, have not been able to benefit from these potentially life-saving innovations. This course will provide a good start for the engineers to get the basic knowledge of Public Safety Networks Over LTE.

This training course will help you with a complete understanding of the basics of Public Safety Networks over LTE and its performance management, Integration and complete know-how of currently running deployments and specifications from 3GPP and other standard organizations. You are empowered with the necessary strategies and ways to improve your already existing LTE/TETRA network to seamlessly integrate with Public Safety Networks over LTE functionalities with the help of industry-specific standards and use cases.
