[NWV_113] Overview of the Mobile CSP Network

Printer-friendly PDF version

Mobile Communications Service Providers (CSPs) are on the cusp of a multitude of network and business transformation choices. This session is designed to provide a good technical understanding of the current mobile CSP network architecture and operations. The session stars with an end-to-end 4G/LTE network architecture including RAN, EPC, Backhaul, Backbone (IP/MPLS) and services networks (IMS/Legacy services). Throughout the session, we describe similarities and differences between regional implementations in North America, Europe, and APAC.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Sketch practical 4G/LTE network architecture
• Compare and contrast regional implementation differences between North America, Europe, and APAC
• Sketch end-to-end VoLTE/IMS network architecture

Intended Audience

This course is intended for a non-technical audience who need to understand the challenges of deploying and supporting the traditional Mobile CSP network.

Suggested Prerequisites
