Analyzing the E-UTRAN

This course builds on the information provided in LTE System Engineering in order to equip you with a concise knowledge of the LTE E-UTRAN. In particular, the detailed operation of S1AP, X2AP, RRC and NAS is examined in context with a variety of key LTE procedures such as network attach, bearer establishment and mobility (both Intra and Inter LTE mobility). Finally, QoS, SON and Relays are also explored as part of the overall E-UTRAN architecture.
