CDMA/WCDMA/UMTS- Technology (4 Months)

Course Code:

Course Objective:
Code Division Multiple Access is a digital wireless telephony transmission technique which allows multiple frequencies to be used simultaneously (Spread Spectrum). The CDMA idea was originally developed for military use over 30 years ago. The CDMA standards used for second-generation mobile telephony are the IS-95 standards championed by QUALCOMM. CDMA uses spread-spectrum techniques. Unlike competing systems, such as GSM, that use TDMA, CDMA does not assign a specific frequency to each user. Instead, every channel uses the full available spectrum. Individual conversations with a pseudo-random digital sequence.

WCDMA, a high-speed 3G mobile wireless technology with the capacity to offer higher data speeds than CDMA. WCDMA can reach speeds of up to 2 Mbps for voice, video, data and image transmission. By 2010, CDMA technologies will be prevalent globally. Half of the Global Wireless subscribers by 2009 will be on CDMA 2000 and WCDMA. Majority of India’s wireless subscribers will be serviced by CDMA technologies (CDMA2000 1X, EVDO, WCDMA/HSDPA) by 2010. This course describes in depth knowledge in CDMA based system and WCDMA based system, UMTS in brief.

What you will learn:
This course provides an in depth knowledge of fundamental to advanced of CDMA, WCDMA and UMTS. Designed with the technical professional in mind, this course includes UTRAN and Core Network architecture and operation in detail.
