GSM UMTS HSPA Network KPI - TRAINING


Course Objectives

GSM, UMTS and HSPA Network KPI Training covers all aspects of Key Performance Indicators used in UMTS, eHSPA, HSPA+ and LTE.
Key performance indicators (KPIs) in GSM, UMTS, HSPA and LTE are defined through the definition and measurement of key parameters of input and output of internal network system and/or maintenance & operation progress of mobile network operations. Key Performance Indicators are a set of quantifiable measures used in GSM, UMTS, HSPA, and LTE networks to gauge or compare performance in terms of meeting mobile network’s strategic and operational goals. KPIs vary between management, marketing, operations and network engineering people depending on their priorities, perspectives or performance criteria sometimes referred to as “key success indicators (KSI)”.
Network professionals including network engineers and network operation will establish their strategic and operational goals and then choose the KPIs which best reflect those goals mapped to main performance indicators. In this course, the participants will learn how to use KPIs and KQIs as the primary metrics to evaluate process performance as indicators of quantitative management, and to measure progress toward your organization goals.
According to TMF (TeleManagement Forum) contributions, SLAs (Service Level Agreement) can contribute to determining how customer care is perceived and aiding service providers in attracting customers and maintaining customer loyalty. TONEX UMTS, and HSPA Network KPI Training is designed to provide a strong foundation to deploying relevant and feasible KPIs for 3GPP RAN an Core networks. This workshop is ideal for professionals who optimize 3GPP RAN and Core and professionals who operate Performance Management in RAN/Core.
