Description

The SPLTE Version 1.0 course is designed to teach professionals the skills required to understand and implement technologies and components found in common LTE networks. The course provides information about the evolved packet core components and their roles in the LTE Evolved Packet System (EPS) to include the Evolved Packet Core/LTE network as well as the Radio Access Network (RAN). The major part of the course includes detailed information on standardized technologies that are implemented on the Cisco SGW Serving Gateway for the Cisco MME Mobile Management Entity and the Cisco PGW Packet Data Network Gateway, and their interaction with authentication, charging, and billing components in the network of the mobile operator. This course also includes configuration details of how these components are implemented on the Cisco ASR 5000 Series system.
