Baicells Installation & Basic Troubleshooting

Includes the Associate Certification exam

3 days in classroom: 2 days of training + 1 day of testing



This course is intended for personnel who plan, install, configure, and maintain Baicells eNodeB and user equipment. It is also considered a foundational course for understanding the LTE technology and serves as a prerequisite for follow-on courses.

The course format is very interactive; the instructor explains the material and demonstrates procedures, and then students work in teams to practice with the equipment and software. Each lesson has review questions to reinforce learning. Students will be discussing, practicing, and reviewing throughout the course.
