Skip to 0 minutes and 8 seconds Hello, my name is Baruch Pinto and I work in Amdocs Network Solutions as a solution architect. I have 20 years of experience in the telecommunications market, working for service providers and network equipment vendors. When I started out as a radio network engineer, I had only basic academic knowledge of cellular networks. Very quickly I discovered that there is a big gap between the theory and real-life networks. To close this gap, I spent time understanding the secrets and processes of network optimization, getting to know the tools and methodologies that were available. All these differ, based on the technology addressed, be it GSM, UMTS or LTE.
Skip to 0 minutes and 50 seconds Since technology constantly evolves, the area of radio network optimization has to evolve with it, keeping our lives as engineers, interesting.
Skip to 1 minute and 1 second In this course, we will discuss how radio network optimization enables the service provider to get the most out of their network, taking into account the requirements for capacity, coverage, and quality. During the course you will meet some of Amdocs’s experts that will walk you through different topics such as drive test analysis, pilot pollution optimization, dropped calls analysis and more. I am really looking forward to spend the time with you during this course, and believe that it will give you a view into the challenging world of radio network optimization. Hello everybody. In this course, we will show and demonstrate some software tools for various stages of network optimization. These tools were designed and implemented by our colleagues and ourselves.
Skip to 1 minute and 47 seconds Having a chance to create the tools you would like to have, is a great source of happiness for the engineers in us. We hope we can transmit at least some of the fun we have with these tools over to you, during the course of this MOOC. By the way, all of these tools are in use at various network operators around the world. So, by watching this course, you are actually looking over the shoulders of real-world network optimization engineers and get a glimpse into their daily work. This is what makes our course different from being in a university lecture hall. Let’s start and enjoy!
