Postgraduate coursework


LTE is the dominant 4G mobile networks technology in Australia and worldwide. In order to obtain a detailed understanding of 4G network performance, telecommunication engineers must have a solid understanding of 4G network structure, function and behaviour.

As part of the learning outcomes in this subject, students acquire fundamental knowledge of 4G mobile networks and learn to apply industry tools and techniques by problem solving, designing and validating the practical performance of a commercial 4G network. This subject provides an introduction to 4G LTE networks as well as details of the architecture, air-interface, protocols, quality of service, radio resource management and services. Students can also undertake a globally recognised industry certification – Alcatel Lucent Certified Network Associate in LTE Networks – by undertaking an additional external examination. The subject is independent of any specific 4G mobile network vendor and is based on industry LTE standards.
