NGN & All-IP training

Architecture & Design

Next Generation Networks (NGN) are slowly but surely taking shape. They are basically MPLS networks able to provide IP connections with high bit rates. The new structures are largely founded on practical experience gathered in the fields of voice over IP and UMTS. The signaling is based on SIP and the architecture of the signaling components follows the principles of IP Multimedia Subsystems (IMS). The distinctive characteristic of NGN lies in the separation of network, access technology, and services: The network constitutes the platform for innovative services that can be accessed from anywhere and at any time. After the course, the students will be able to understand up-to-date NGN concepts and evaluate them competently.
