ITU ASP CoE Training on Traffic engineering and advanced wireless network planning

​​30 September - 3 October 2019, Hotel Radisson Blu, Bangkok, Thailand

The ITU Asia-Pacific Centre of Excellence (ITU ASP CoE) Training on " Traffic engineering and advanced wireless network planning" will be held from 30 September to 3 October at Hotel Radisson Blu, Bangkok, Thailand. This face-to-face training is organized jointly by the International Telecommunication Union, National Broadcasting and Telecommunciations Commission (Thailand) and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia as part of the Fixed and Wireles Broadband programme under the auspices of the ITU Centres of Excellence for Asia-Pacific Region. The training will be delivered in English language.

The objective of the programme are 

  • ​To build knowledge of policy makers, regulators and telecom operators in the areas of 4G, 5G and IoT ecosystem and related network planning
  • To share best practices on traffic engineering and network planning in evolving scenario.
  • To build skills on how to develop a roadmap for 5G and IoT.
