Course Overview

This course looks at the core network technologies and architectures currently being adopted by telecommunication Operators/Communication Service Providers (CSPs) worldwide.

We start by looking at existing core network requirements and architectures – as the foundation from which operators evolve, before looking at a range of service delivery techniques, and finally examining how best practice techniques are developed through the Evolved Packet Core and a range of advanced systems such as PCC , IMS, & VoLTE (Voice over LTE).
