Introduction to Telecommunications - NGN Services Overview (Extended)
Course Code: NG-IT-02
Length: 2 days
Delivery Mode: Instructor-led
Additional Information: Client-site sessions available.
This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of how IP, MPLS, Ethernet and related technologies form the basis of NGN service provisioning. It also discusses general networking principles as an aid to understanding NGN issues. It is intended that this approach will enhance the use of related Telcordia products and how they can best be deployed in support of NGN service provisioning. Additionally this course provides a general understanding of frame structures for TCP/IP, Ethernet, ATM/FR and MPLS, and examines the numbering schemes utilized in these technologies (port numbers, IP addresses, VLAN tags, MAC addresses, etc.). The management of circuit hierarchies in these contexts is also examined. All this comes together to provide an overview of how all these technologies can provide NGN services such as VPNs, VoIP and Tripleplay. The course provides a theoretical background, along with demonstrations and paper-based exercises training. Course Aim: To give delegates an extended overview of the main principles of NGN technologies and how they are used to provide packet services in telecommunication networks. Overview: Through the presentation of slides and with discussions, questions and exercises, the instructor will provide a comprehensive overview of the nature of NGN services and the technologies that support them.
