The 4G Deployment Challenge (Online Game) by Ericsson

 

For all those radio network planners out there, think you are equipped with the necessary skills to deploy 4G network? Challenge yourself and colleagues to a fun game by Ericsson.

You are a network planner who has been allocated some budget, power constraints and two types of Base stations: Macrocell BS, Picocell BS.

The Macrocell BS provides more coverage but comes with high CAPEX and OPEX

The Picocell BS on the other hand provides smaller coverage but consumes relatively low power and is much cheaper.

5 scenarios in total (mix of urban, suburban and rural).

Person with the highest score will get a chance to spend a  fun packed day at Ericsson!

So happy deploying :)

    Cool!

    I wish I had seen this earlier. The students could then have tried it in my wireless course. The game gives an idea of what it takes to do network planning. It is actually a bit trickier than I first expected. I could not find the link somewhere so here it is:

      That’s weird, because when I was posting, I had included the link and checked if the link was accessible. But thank you for checking it out I will update my post with the link included.

      Yeah, I am also planning to include it in upcoming course on Radio Network Planning. Will discuss it with my Prof. what he thinks about it.
