backtotop.gifTraining Course Description

Course Description

  • This training course is targeted at engineers and technicians who are involved in the operation, optimization and troubleshooting of GPRS-networks.
  • The training course starts with a comprehensive and detailed examination of the capabilities of GPRS and the maximum performance that can be achieved, considering the various restrictions and interdependencies of the different components involved, like application protocols, the network architecture, the mobile station and the host software.
  • The training course lines out the different means and options of how to determine the performance and quality of a GPRS network and how to make these results reproducible.
  • Most interesting is the detailed presentation of how to fine-tune the different components of a GPRS-network to achieve the optimum performance.
  • The training course concludes with the detailed analysis of typical errors and failures in GPRS networks, discriminating mobile station issues from network problems.

As in all INACON training courses we integrated several interactive exercises for a perfect learning experience.

Some of your questions that will be answered

  • How can engineers in the core network and in the radio network determine the actual network performance?
  • What are the performance requirements of the different TCP-applications?
  • How can I distinguish application and mobile station failures which are outside of our scope from real network problems?
  • How to nail down performance bottlenecks in the different parts of your network?
  • How to optimize the performance for the different applications?

backtotop.gifWho should attend this class?

  • Network operators who need to optimize the performance of their networks
  • System supplier staff who is involved in the troubleshooting and optimization of GPRS-networks
  • Design engineers of mobile stations and PDA's for GPRS


  • Very good understanding of GPRS networks, protocols, operation and parameters. Previous knowledge of all GPRS-details from our training training course "GPRS from A-Z" is required.
  • Good understanding of the IP-world is necessary as this training course lines out in detail the interdependency of achieving the best achievable performance of TCP/IP applications over the GPRS-bearer.
To cope with these requirements, we strongly recommend to take our training course
"GPRS - Signaling & Protocol Analysis" (RAN & Mobile Station) + (Core Network) beforehand.
