MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS

 

SAIEE-2403-V: 2 CPD credits :Category 1

OVERVIEW

The course addresses the principles associated with the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) mobile communications technology.

The two areas where LTE differs from previous versions of the mobile communications technology, i.e. GSM and HSPA, are in the radio interface and the core network requirements. The course addresses both these areas.

For the radio interface we will look at the wireless channel and system models, resource management and power control, multiple antenna and MIMO systems, space-time codes and decoding algorithms, multiple access techniques and multiple user detection, and OFDM.

For the core network we will look at the Systems Architecture Evolution (SAE) and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as defined by the 3 GPP.

Two additional areas of current interest associated with 4G mobile networks, viz. WiMax and WiFi Data Offload will also be covered.

COURSE OUTLINE :

The course comprises 9 modules addressing the following topics :

Module 1 : The Mobile Arena

Module 2 : Objectives of LTE

Module 3 : The Physical Layer

Module 4 : layer 2

Module 5 : LTE Core Network

Module 6 : Voice over LTE (VoLTE)

Module 7 : WiMax

Module 8 : Heterogeneous Networks

Module 9 : WiFi Data Offload

His last position within Telkom SA was as the Executive responsible for Network Build. During his tenure with Telkom SA he was responsible for managing the deployment of telecommunications infrastructure required for the first democratic General Election held in South Africa in 1994 as well as the telecommunications infrastructure required for the Rugby World Cup in 1995. Within the vendor community he served as Technical Director for Marconi South Africa from 2000 to 2006 and as Chief Technology Officer for the Major Accounts Business Unit with Ericsson Sub Saharan Africa between 2007 and 2012.

Currently George is a Director of George Debbo Telecoms, a consultancy specializing in Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), next generation transmission networks, fixed broadband access networks and mobile backhaul.

George holds a BSc (Electrical Engineering) and MSc (Electrical Engineering) degree from the University of the Witwatersrand. He is a registered Professional Engineer with the Engineering Council of South Africa and a Fellow of the SAIEE.
