The third generation systems “3G” revolutionize the use of internet , addition to the usual voice and messaging services, 3G system will provide mobile users with high-speed data transfer and willsupport multimedia application such as video conferencing.

This course will provide an overview of the WCDMA system, as defined in the 3GPP Release 99 specifications for the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS).adding to that Basic concept of HSDPA and HSUPA are also explored. The course will start with an overview of features for UMTS Release 99, HSDPA, and HSUPA.

The course will continue by examining WCDMA and UMTS Network architecture, Protocol Layers and Channel Descriptions, CDMA Concepts, and Key Physical Layer Concepts for WCDMA.


  •  Present different releases and Give features and capabilities for each release.
  •  Explain the architecture of each subsystem with different Network Elements and functionalities.
  •  Explain radio path basics.
  •  Identify WCDMA basics (power, spreading, codes, etc.).
  •  Explain the radio interface structure and channels (UMTS+HSPA).
  •  Explain radio resource control functionalities.
  •  Explain the concept of signaling.
  •  Explain relation between control plane and user plane.
  •  Study of some call flow.
  • Give an idea about quality of service and differentiate between traffic classes.


The attendee of this course needs to have basic knowledge of telecommunication network and technologies, GSM / GPRS, although this is not a must.
