Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

We will discuss a wide range of packet networking topics, while placing them into the context of mobile networks. Beginning with an overview of access networks and signaling, we will undertake an in-depth study of ATM, IP, Ethernet, transport layer protocols, and GSM/UMTS interfaces. We will conclude with a look at mobility management over MPBN. You will go away from the course with an understanding of the impact of IP and related technologies on the entire, end-to-end mobile communications network.


Customize It!

Customize this course to your specific needs at little-to-no additional cost. We offer distinct versions of this course tailored for audiences such as network engineers, equipment or application designers, or less technical audiences such as managers, executives, business planners, sales and marketing specialists, and operations and support personnel. The course can also be extended to include application layer protocols such as IMS and SIP if needed.


Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

Telecommunications engineers who wish to prepare themselves for the transition to packet-switched backbone architecture.



While no specific courses are pre-required, you should have a general familiarity with GSM or UMTS architecture and services.
