Traffic Engineering Models for 3g Network Design Training Course Description

Mobile networks are rapidly evolving to a mixed usage model where data will become increasingly more prevalent in the mix of traffic demanded by consumers. With technologies such as 3G, 4G and IMS, and lower costs per unit of capacity for voice traffic, wireless carriers will continue to deploy more sophisticated networks to allow for the seamless interaction between voice and data services, managed by policy-aware networks and technologies.

The understanding of the mix of traffic, how to predict capacity requirements, impact to network policies, spectrum utilization and performance, buffers, quality of service and impacts of and to mobility management will be key principles in unlocking the potential of a 3G/4G and IMS enabled network. This Traffic Engineering Models for 3g Network Design Training course is an in-depth study of these and related 3G traffic engineering issues.
