Customized Application for the Mobile network Enhanced Logic, or CAMEL for short, is an important standard for intelligent mobile communications networks. Now under deployment worldwide, CAMEL enables mobile network operators to offer value-added services quickly and efficiently.

This, the second of our two courses on CAMEL builds on the strong foundation of CAMEL knowledge we laid down in the first. In this CAMEL Advanced Training course, you will learn the advanced functionality of CAMEL phase 3 and 4, CAMEL vis-à-vis IMS and SIP, CAMEL overlay for non-CAMEL networks, third-party CAMEL platforms, and CAMEL Phase 4 (3GPP releases 5, 6 and 7). We will conclude with a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art of CAMEL including the many CAMEL systems on the market, varying approaches to CAMEL deployment, the status of CAMEL implementation worldwide, what is being implemented and why, and how to plan for CAMEL implementation for a new network, existing network, and MVNO or other specialized environments.

Throughout the CAMEL Advanced Training course, you will receive practical guidance on how to design and deploy CAMEL networks. Whether you are a wireless or network design engineer, “service network” planner, or software/device designer, this CAMEL Training course will help you master the powerful features of today’s advanced intelligent networks that are made possible by CAMEL.
