Next Generation Networks, SIP, SigTran

Training Course Outline

Course Duration:
2 days

Training Course Description:
This course is aimed at providing the student with a detailed overview of the control (signalling) protocols emerging in Next Generation Network (NGN) architectures including interworking both within and outwith NGNs.

The course provides an overview of the packet based signalling protocols: SIGnaling TRANsport (SIGTRAN), H.323, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), and Bearer Independent Call Control protocol (BICC). The overviews are provided in an integrated way so that students should understand how the protocols relate to each other, how they may work together, protocols specifics, service possibilities and interworking methods both between themselves, the current PSTN and their use within third generation (3G) cellular networks.

Next Generation Networks, SIP, SigTran includes the following modules:
