Training Overview

Training Structure
Job-Orientated
Training

The training portfolio is job-oriented. It provides the sets of modules packaged


to fulfill the needs of each job. These packages have been carefully designed to
cover all the educational aspects of BSS Networks operators.
The job-oriented training packages could be found at: http://www3.alcatellucent.com/university/Catalog/wireless.html

Multi-Customer
Training

Multi-customer sessions are organized throughout the year. You can find the
schedule of these sessions on the extranet.
NOTE: The sessions are confirmed when there are at least four (4) participants.
The training packages can be ordered globally as described in this document,
but they can also be built by combining elementary training modules.
NOTE: When ordering several training packages for the same trainees, check
there are no duplicate modules. The same module can be part of several
training packages.

Prerequisites

All training courses can be delivered in English. Most of them can also be
delivered in other languages. Please refer to the individual training module
description to check in what language the training module can be delivered.
All training documentation given with the training course is only available in
English.
All training modules can be delivered either at Alcatel-Lucent premises or on
the customers site.
As a general rule, the number of participants is 12 for theoretical training and 8
for practical training.
For practical training, the number of participants depends on the amount of
equipment required. When the training is requested on the customers site,
please check what equipment is available.
Alcatel-Lucent has its own training platform for practice. When practical
training is delivered on site, it is the responsibility of the customer to provide
access to platforms.
For each module, prerequisites are specified; please make sure the trainees
fulfill them.

Personnel performing technical or non-technical tasks involving 2G networks. For
example : Managers, Radio Engineers, BSS Engineers, Tendering Teams, Sales
Teams, Marketing Teams, R&D Teams.
This package of courses provides students with insights into what GSM is, how it
works and how it is the starting point for 3G UMTS. Packages consist of multiple
Courses. Users can choose to enroll in either full package or a few courses,
whichever suits the learning need.
Understanding of wireless systems
3FL99300AAAA GSM Introduction 1,5hs
This course introduces students to the developmental history and evolution of GSM
2G technology. This non-technical course summarizes the historical challenge of
uniting several disparate European markets under a single digital wireless
telecommunications standard
3FL99301AAAA GSM Network Aspects 1,5hs
This course takes students into the inner workings of a typical GSM network
infrastructure, introducing the network elements (switch, HLR, VLR,
Authentication Center, etc.), topology, and signaling protocols used within that
network.
3FL99277AAAA Intro to GPRS: Data over GSM 1,5hs
This course introduces students to General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), the
wireless packet data technology offered by GSM networks. Theories, channel
allocations, data rates, authentication protocols, tunneling, roaming and control
details used by GPRS.
3FL99302AAAA GSM Traffic Channel - 1,75hs
This course takes a step-by-step approach to exploring the GSM traffic channel.
The course explains how the air interface between the mobile station and the
base transceiver station, processes users voices before transmitting
3FL99303AAAA GSM Logical/Physical Channels 2hs
The GSM standard models its communication paths as logical channel and physical
channels. Defined by an expressed purpose and information carried, a logical
channel may contain a user's voice, data, or a particular type of control channel.
In practice, a physical channel is a time slot on a frequency channel on the air
interface. This course defines the channels, and maps the logical channels onto
the physical channels.
3FL99304AAAA GSM System Capacity 1h
This course explores the capacity of a GSM network. Comparisons are made to
older, analog systems and other 2G systems. This course also offers a detailed
discussion on interference reduction methods used in GSM.

Improve trainee's motivation
Improve knowledge/competence transfer between trainer and trainee

Audience

Objectives

Pre-requisites

Method

Indeed in the way of the competence acquisition, assessment is a step which


allows the trainee to have a real feedback on how he masters the execution of
main procedures belonging to the maintenance, supervision and/or configuration
job such as board replacement, fault analysis, re-parenting, site creation,
parameter settings, indicators monitoring, etc.
Practically, thanks to the assessment the trainee will have a clear picture on his
real acquired competencies through a straight-forward task-completion report.
Moreover, the essential added-value of the assessment is to bring an opportunity
to detect and solve a misunderstanding issue in a critical task execution.
The trainee attended the training courses relative to the assessment.
After the practical course begins the assessment phase in which the trainee has to
perform a selection of key exercises already seen during the course with the help
of the :
Electronic Customer Documentation
Connection to 9100 BTS, 9130 BSC/MFS, 9125 TC, 9153 OMC-R, and/or 9959 NPO.
Trainee's personal notes
The "examiner" monitors the trainee during the practical session. At the end of the
assessment, a report is made to the trainee and if requested to the customer. In
this report, tasks acquired and tasks not acquired will be clearly identified.
Note: assessment duration can be customized according to the number of
equipments to do assessments on.
