Description

In the continuously evolving and growing landscape of mobile telecommunications, the 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) 5G standard has just been released. But legacy 4G technology is still being deployed in the market. Since the commercial launch of LTE in 2010, LTE technology has been widely deployed by Mobile operators around the world. Today LTE is the dominant market technology and it will continue to do so for many years to come. 

So for those who aspire to start career in mobile telecom companies, it is quite rewarding to invest in the 4G LTE technology. For those already in Mobile network operators this will enhance their portfolio and career prospects.

This LTE training is comprehensive and indepth, so that you may get started with this LTE cellular technology as soon as possible. This course is designed to provide you with necessary functional knowledge possible in shortest possible time.

The course comes with 100% MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE.
