Diameter Signaling Training explains what Diameter Signaling is and what it does. Diameter is the evolution path of signaling protocols similar to what SS7 did in PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Networks) signaling. The Diameter Signaling Training course explains Diameter Signaling in detail, especially how to plan, design, configure, operate & maintain Diameter-based signaling products in LTE/EPC, IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), and other networks.

Learn how to create a Diameter-based control layer applied to LTE, IMS, and 3G using Diameter endpoints. Using Diameter enables applications such as routing, traffic management, revenue assurance, policy and charging, and load balancing to create business models with Cloud, M2M, Internet of Things (IoT), and content. Diameter protocol has practically replaced SS7 signaling in LTE/EPC and IMS.

  •  Monitoring and diagnosing traffic with centralized network visibility
  • Creating stateful sessions for more visibility of services, binding, and correlation across networks
  • Enabling core routing and mobility management
  • We can adapt this Diameter Signaling Training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this Diameter Signaling course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Diameter Signaling around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Diameter Signaling course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.
