DURATION 2 Half Days

Course Overview

The course opens with an introduction to the 4th cellular generation technologies – what drives their development and the new capabilities they bring.
Taking a functional-oriented approach, we’ll go through the main functionality the new LTE Access and Evolved Packed Core expose.
We will see how the new network architecture, network elements, QoS, and Radio Access Network empower the 4G network’s improved functionality.
As an All-IP network, data handling in EPS is crucial, but we’ll also see what options are there for the service provider to handle voice calls and SMS.
We’ll also discuss the important aspects of mobility and security, and the promise of Self Organized Networks.
