LTE/SAE NGN Transport Training
LTE/SAE NGN Transport Training Course – Hands-on
LTE is a fourth generation mobile communication technology standardized by the 3GPP which enables support for broadband connectivity to mobile devices, permitting the delivery of demanding multimedia information to any device, anywhere, anytime. In support of this, changes to the core network are also defined as System Architecture Evolution (SAE), providing an all-IP bearer platform for delivery of services. This LTE/SAE NGN Transport Training course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the development, design, and capabilities of next generation transport technology options.
The LTE/SAE NGN Transport Training course will begin with a review of LTE/SAE and introduce the idea of the SAE delivering services to both fixed and mobile users. The focus of the course then shifts to transport options for the deployment of LTE/SAE as a next generation network infrastructure. Carrier-class MPLS is described in detail. Transport options for access, backhaul and core network are described in detail. The course finishes with an examination of the opportunities the evolved packet core and next generation transport technologies may permit.
LTE/SAE NGN Transport Training Course – Customize it
