After successfully completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the processes used when planning the core network and list the general inputs and outputs to the sub-processes used
- Explain the methodologies and processes used within traffic planning
- Identify the processes and techniques associated with traffic and bearer modelling
- Identify the processes of Erlang calculations and circuit switched bandwidth capacity requirements for IP transport networks
- Explain the User Plane design process, taking into consideration TDM, ATM, IP and MPLS transmission technologies
- Describe IP user plane design considerations from an IP Layer 3 protocol management aspect.
- Explain signalling network design processes and identify signalling network architectures and topologies for TDM, ATM and IP
- Explain performance requirements related to redundancy and reliability and bandwidth volume calculations
- Describe the basic concept of Traffic Theory needed for the dimensioning of networks
- Understand and explain Processor Load Definitions, Bandwidth and Voice Quality
Pre-Requisite for Participants:
An understanding of 3GPP Mobile Networks, along with experience in network design would be an advantage though not essential.
