Training Compendium CE

Training goals

This extensive four-day training provides a unique overview of signaling protocols that dominate in the architecture of UMTS Core Network. Presented in a easy to follow and logical order this course discusses concepts ranging from basic Signalling System No 7 protocols with the focus on specific user parts through signalling transport in ATM and IP infrastructure, including SIGTRAN, to specialised protocols used in setting up bearers for mutirate applications. Supplemented with a series of challenging exercises based on real network scenarios this training offers a great occasion to obtain a in-depth understanding of signalling concepts.

Target Audience - Who Should Attend and Benefit

The course is designed for employees of mobile network operators, who need to understand the principles of signalling in UMTS Core Network. In-depth view of selected topics is also covered.
