As mobile networks become more heterogeneous in order to support ever-increasing indoor and outdoor capacity needs, testing must take into consideration operators' infrastructure choices. In advanced wireless networks, that can include LTE macro sites, indoor or outdoor small cells, and distributed antenna systems (iDAS or oDAS) to suit the capacity and cost needs of the network at a particular site.

This webinar will give a general overview of the means and methods of testing these network technologies; major issues and challenges, including PIM; and special considerations that should be taken into account for each technology and indoor and outdoor implementations.


The webinar will also examine some of the major market drivers behind operators' infrastructure choices, an update on infrastructure spending and deployment, plus trends in the latest testing equipment.

What you will learn: 

Network operations and management personnel who are tasked with designing, deploying and optimizing LTE networks; C-level executives seeking to deepen their understanding of network testing; and enterprise IT personnel who deal with wireless SLAs and network quality assurance.

Who should attend: 

The major trends and technical challenges in LTE field testing for modern mobile networks.
