LTE/EPC System Overview

The LTE/EPC System Overview course offers a comprehensive – yet easily understandable – overview of the basic functionality of the Evolved Packet System (EPS). EPS consists of the evolved Radio Access Network (E-UTRAN) and the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as defined in the 3GPP Releases 8 up to Release 11 standardisation projects ‘Long Term Evolution’ and ‘System Architecture Evolution’.

LTE Signalling

The course offers a solid understanding of the layer 2 (L2) and layer 3 (L3) signalling protocols as well as the physical layer (L1) defined for the evolved radio access network (E-UTRAN). The course focuses on the radio interface and the S1-interface but includes also relevant information pertaining to the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) in order to give the student a comprehensive end-to-end view of the most important signalling scenarios.

EPC Signalling

The EPC Signalling course describes the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as standardized by 3GPP in technical specifications. The course accounts for the network architecture, logical functions (nodes) and signalling protocols in EPC, primarily with E-UTRAN access. Message-level traffic cases (signalling flows) are used throughout the course to illustrate the use of EPC protocols.

Diameter in 3GPP Networks

The course describes the Diameter protocol and particularly the use of Diameter in 3GPP Networks. The first day focuses on the Diameter Base Protocol as standardized by IETF. It accounts for Diameter terminology, commands and AVPs, the use of Diameter agents, peers, security, transport, routing etc. Day 2 focuses on how Diameter is used in 3GPP architectures such as LTE/EPS and IMS. Message-level traffic cases (signalling flows) are used throughout the course to illustrate the use of the Diameter protocol.

PCC – Policy and Charging Control

The PCC – Policy and Charging Control training offers a comprehensive – yet easily understandable – description of the purpose, principles, architecture for Policy and Charging Control as specified by 3GPP. The course focuses on PCC used with UMTS and EPS (with GTP-based core network). Relevant functional entities, protocols and interfaces are described, and signalling flows are used to illustrate the PCC mechanisms.

LTE Physical Layer

The course describes the physical layer (layer 1) aspects of the LTE (E-UTRA) radio interface. Downlink and uplink control channels for synchronization, scheduling, hybrid-ARQ operation and feedback signalling are described in detail. The full processing chain “from IP-packet to radio wave” is covered (including also layer 2 functions). Physical layer procedures such as cell search, random access, scheduling and hybrid-ARQ are described.
