As mobile wireless operators seek to enhance their service offerings with the new 3G/4G-oriented, IMS-enabled applications, the volume and importance of IP traffic on mobile networks continue to grow as well.  The savings afforded by Voice over the Internet Protocol (VoIP) provide another impetus for the coming transition from the traditional circuit-switched, voice-centric environments to networks that treat all applications as data.

Given the growing importance of IP in the mobile wireless domain, engineers, business strategists, planners, services designers, marketers, and others can use a good strong tutorial on Mobile IP.  This Mobile IP Training course was designed to fulfill that need.  It provides comprehensive coverage of the whole range of Mobile IP topics from the basic principles to Mobile IPv4, transitions to and differences with respect to Mobile IPv6, ICMPv6, HIPv6, MIPv6 over MPLS, synchronicity and security issues, and the impact of the Internet Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) on the mobile domain.
