                   Understanding the Key Challenges of Planning and Rolling Out NGMN Networks
The workshop is targeted at the decision makers involved in the network rollout and planning of next generation mobile networks: network
architects, radio and core network planning engineers, product engineers, deployments and optimisation technicians and business
development staff from network operators, infrastructure providers, chip set and device manufacturers, regulatory bodies and academics.
This hands-on workshop will give attendees practical advice on the key challenges in planning NGMN networks in terms of technology choices (LTE,
Wimax, UMB), cost (the CAPEX and OPEX perspective), performance (transmission and maintenance) and the operator perspective of NGMN.
Attend this workshop and ensure your wireless network deployments are profitable!
