Traffic Engineering Training Overview:

Traffic Engineering Training Overview Course with Hands-On Labs (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live)

Good traffic engineering is not only an essential element of a network’s initial design but also critical to its smooth, ongoing operation. The job of the engineer responsible for traffic on a mobile network has recently become more important as well as more complex. Traffic is growing faster on mobile networks than on traditional, landline, fixed infrastructure networks.

This growth in mobile traffic is paralleled by the increasing growth and diversity of mobility-based data applications and services along with a continuously changing subscribers’ services profile. And, of course, any analysis of traffic over radio channels must also account for the radio-related impacts on capacity which can be dynamic in nature.

In this Traffic Engineering Training Overview course, you will study traffic engineering from multiple angles including an overview of the various RF modulation techniques popular in commercial networks today, and how those modulation techniques impact available capacity. Emphasis is placed on understanding the correct methodology to use for a particular service and achieving the highest level of utilization and efficiency without sacrificing the quality of service.

The Traffic Engineering Training Overview course will not only arm you with a good understanding of when to employ the appropriate Erlang or other traffic models, but it will also give you a new level of sophistication in ensuring the quality of service (QoS) for your subscriber’s while maximizing the utility of your network.

Customize It:

  1. If you are familiar with some aspects of Traffic Engineering Training, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  2. We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Traffic Engineering Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  3. 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 Traffic Engineering course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.
