About This Course

When planning network coverage and capacity, communication service providers consider certain constraints and subscriber behaviour. When the network goes live, the real-life behaviour is often different.

The process of adjusting the radio access network (RAN) settings to provide the desired performance, coverage and capacity is called radio frequency (RF) or radio network optimization.

Why Take This Course?

This online course will show you practical, real-life methods and approaches to radio network optimization, based on years of experience gained by Amdocs engineers around the world.
