Course title VoLTE
Course description The voice service over LTE must handle handover from legacy networks. The main focus of this course is the interoperability between GSM/UMTS core and EPC. It also provides a detailed level of IMS and QoS framework in conjunction with services as VoIP, SMS and video calls. Traffic cases will describe handover and mobility over different access and core technologies.
Who would benefit Engineers working in 3GPP networks with R&D and O&M, requiring a good understanding of the interworking and interoperability between the different technologies providing voice services in LTE networks.
Prerequisites Experience of 3GPP technologies is an advantage but not compulsory.
Length 2 Days
