Gsm And Gprs Fundamentals

Category: Gsm And Gprs Fundamentals

Course Description

This training course aims to share comprehensive and effective technical information regarding GSM and the GPRS network, services and the development of applications.

GSM has its origins in delivering voice, but does have data limitations. But, this is compensated by the packet-switched functionality that GPRS provides. As it is a packet-data technology, it has the ability to enable services such as e-mail and internet access. As a result of this, GPRS does provide a financial incentive. Furthermore, it has data transfer speed benefits, and architecture, protocols and functions fit for purpose. This is all explored, in a progressive manner, from GSM, to EDGE to GPRS.

This training course will feature:

  • An understanding of GPRS network planning, as well as the project planning phase
  • The practicalities involved in managing a GSM/GPRS project
  • GPRS architecture, as well as services that are/can be provided
  • GPRS protocols and their functionality
  • IP network architectures and functionality
  • GPRS network functionality

Benefit of Attending

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate the functionality of a GPRS system
  • Understand the transition/evolution from GSM to GPRS
  • Comprehend and understand the existing and emerging standards
  • The ability to review GPRS network architecture and protocols
  • Explain GPRS security
  • Understand GPRS troubleshooting

Who Should Attend

This training course has been designed to provide a general overview and would be well suited to anyone that has an interest in this form of data transmission. It would be useful for those people who wish to understand the ins and outs of the technology, as well as those who deal with it daily.

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Network Professionals
  • IT Professionals
  • Consultants
  • Strategic and Technical Managers
