'We are facing a huge crunch of LTE ready professionals to work on our global projects,' says Sandeep Achantani (CEO-Africa Region), Innovis
(PRWEB) October 03, 2014
With the ever rising demand of data services by mobile consumers worldwide, mobility operators are increasing the capability of mobile networks by adding capacity and adopting new technologies. The latest entrant in the mobile technology space is Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology which is a 4th Generation wireless technology aimed at providing very high speed data rates to the users. There are several challenges faced by the operators in rolling out 4G LTE networks such as availability of equipment, spectrum, regulatory hurdles, 4G handsets, etc. But one of the major challenges being faced by the operators is the availability of trained engineering staff which knows LTE technology and is able to plan, deploy and manage these networks.
It has become very important at the moment for the technical staff working with telecommunications companies to upgrade their skills on Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. With the university curriculum still not suitable to teach real life LTE network operations, the only option for these professionals is to undergo a vocational training program in LTE. "We are facing a huge crunch of LTE ready professionals to work on our global projects" says Sandeep Achantani (CEO-Africa Region), Innovis, a company involved in providing services to telecom operators and equipment manufacturers.
Keeping this demand into mind, Cognitel has launched a Certification Program in Long Term Evolution (LTE) Networks. This 8-hour duration of a comprehensive e-learning course is equivalent to a 4-day classroom workshop in covering LTE Network Architecture, Air Interface in LTE Networks, Signaling, Power Control, Radio Resource Management and Mobility Management in LTE. The course also includes a certification exam. The students would be awarded Certification in LTE Networks upon successful completions of the course. This program can be enrolled on http://www.cognitel.com at a very affordable price of $199, by way of which the students are given 60-day access to the portal to complete the program. The students are also provided teacher support for any queries that arise during the courses.
This kind of upskilling on 4G LTE would prove to be a win-win situation for both the telecommunication companies where they would reap the benefits of being ready to deploy manpower and on the other hand where telecom professionals would have greater growth prospects in their current as well as future employment opportunities.
