GSM MAP Training Course In Depth

Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) is the world’s leading wireless communication standard. This GSM MAP Training course defines the protocol structure and content of the messages which support the GSM mobile applications and services. You will gain a thorough knowledge of how messages are constructed and how mobile communications between elements is accomplished.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of GSM MAP Training, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the GSM MAP Training course 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 GSM MAP Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.


After completing this GSM MAP Training course, attendees will be able to:

• In this GSM MAP Training course you will learn about GSM components, subscriber identities along with network identities. We will briefly look at the lower layers of the SS7 protocol which is used for message routing and transport. Emphasis is placed on the TCAP ITU-T standard, the Mobile Application Part (MAP) application and signaling across the A-interface. Call-flow scenarios show how the various elements signal and communicate.
