IP in Mobile Networks’ Backbone

ELP 0306  ★★

The course presents Internet Protocol from the perspective of mobile operators. Generic knowledge is explained as well as specific functionality used in mobile backbone networks. The IP, its main protocols such as TCP and ICMP are presented.

The course is based on the IETF RFCs and GSM Technical Specifications and hence is vendor-independent.

Target audience – Who should attend and benefit

The course is addressed to core network engineers, as well as any technical staff requiring knowledge of the Internet Protocol based networks.

Prerequisites – What you are supposed to know prior to the course

An understanding of the principles of the telecommunication will be an advantage for participation in this course.
