backtotop.gifTraining Course Description

Course Description

  • This training course replaces our well-established training course “GPRS / UMTS – Signaling & Protocol Analysis (The Core Network)”, which covered contents up to Rel. 99.
  • It addresses the needs of engineers and technicians who are already experienced in GPRS.
  • This second part of the GPRS signaling training course series focuses on the aspects of GPRS within the core network and from the application perspective.
As in all our training courses we integrated several interactive exercises for a perfect learning experience.

Some of your questions that will be answered

  • How can I evaluate GPRS trace files on the various new interfaces (Gb, Gn, Gp, Gi)?
  • How does the GPRS Tunneling Protocol (GTP) work?
  • What is the differences between GTP and GTP’ ?
  • How are CDR’s processed in GPRS networks? Which CDR’s need to be considered?
  • What different means are there to provide IP-addresses to authorized GPRS subscribers?
  • Which statistical information can be retrieved by means of protocol testers to determine our network performance?
  • In case of errors: How can I identify DNS/RADIUS/… server problems from problems within our GPRS network?
  • How do WAP and SMS work with GPRS?

backtotop.gifWho should attend this class?

  • Everybody who needs to optimize GPRS networks.
  • Design Engineers of GPRS network equipment.
  • Every engineer who is involved in the testing and operation of GPRS core networks.
  • Field engineers who have to analyze GPRS recording files.
  • All engineers who need to interpret GPRS recording files in the lab.


  • Very good understanding of GSM networks, protocols, operation and parameters. If required, we advise our training course “GSM - Signaling & Protocol Analysis” to be taken upfront.
  • Previous knowledge of GPRS is essential. If required, we advise our training course “GPRS from A – Z” to be taken upfront.
  • Previous experience with GPRS network operation is optional but favorable.

backtotop.gifTraining Course Target

  • The student will be enabled to understand all relevant details of GPRS-procedures within the Core Network.
  • The student will understand the interworking between the GPRS and the TCP/IP-protocol stack.
  • The student will be enabled to analyze recording files taken on the Gn- / Gp- and Gi-Interfaces.
