UMTS Core Network Training

UMTS Core Network Training:

UMTS Core Network Training Course hands-on (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live!)

UMTS Core Network Training course covers the details of various functions of the Core Network including Mobility Management, authentication, security, roaming, call and session setup, and the evolution of the UMTS network towards an all-IP-based network. It gives an overview of the evolved core networks in different releases of UMTS from Release 4 to Release 8.

The Core Network hardware configuration is also vendor specific. Network vendors have very extensive documentation on how to design all aspects of the core network starting from the room environmental requirements up to the post-integration system quality audit. The UMTS Core Network Training course covers the details of various functions of the Core Network including Mobility Management, authentication, security, roaming, call and session setup, and the evolution of the UMTS network towards an all-IP-based network.
