Course Overview

With the increase in smartphones, smart devices, and associated applications, are you equipped with new thinking in terms of how to control access and traffic within the telecoms network? You see, effective Policy and Charging Control through the deployment of Diameter signalling is becoming an absolute requirement to guarantee the cost-effective and efficient delivery of data services to minimise risk from increased traffic loading.

This workshop explores exactly that in addition to looking at the impact on the network and interaction with existing signalling systems. It highlights the standard 3GPP solutions, including the migration to the Evolved Packet Core (EPC), as well as the major options for deployment. Finally, the course covers the overall requirements for signalling in modern networks, before focusing on the emerging role of PCC and Diameter to ensure continuing efficiency and effective traffic control.
