backtotop.gifTraining Course Description


  • Course DescriptionThis training course addresses the needs of everybody who needs to understand the technology and services of the IMS as the heart of an NGN.
  • The course starts with an animated presentation of some new services which offering is enabled through the IMS. After this, we present the involvement and role of the different standard bodies like TISPAN or 3GPP.
  • This part concludes with the presentation of the different IMS-layout and design options (TISPAN, 3GPP, …).
  • The following chapter is dedicated to the IMS-related protocols and their presentation. This part introduces the student into protocols like SIP, SDP, DIAMETER or H.248, to name a few important ones.
  • The course continues with the description of the logical elements within the IMS. This description is not as detailed as in our IMS system engineering training course but provides for a good understanding of the IMS-internals.
  • The final part of this chapter is dedicated to the illustration of services (again animated) and how they are realized through the IMS (also animated).
  • All kinds of potential IMS-issues like operation in NAT-environments, security threats, QoS-issues are described in the following part. Of course, we also provide possible solutions to address these problems…
  • The training course concludes with the presentation of a real-life implementation of an IMS.

Some of your questions that will be answered

  • What are typical IMS-specific applications and services like “See what I see” and how do they work?
  • Which differences are there among the different IMS-implementation options, say TISPAN and 3GPP?
  • What are the functions of the different network nodes inside the IMS?
  • How is mutual authentication achieved in the IMS?
  • How can IMS-services be charged?
  • What are the differences between different SIP-server types like proxy, B2BUA and SBC?
  • How do real-life implementations of the IMS look like?

backtotop.gifWho should attend this class?

  • Engineers, technicians and everybody else who requires solid background knowledge about the IMS.
  • Network Operator and vendor staff who needs to be prepared for any IMS-related job assignment. In that respect, this training course is the basis for our other NGN-related training courses.


  • The student needs to have a reasonable background of the IP-protocol stack.
  • Previous exposure to the operation, planning or maintenance of telecom or IT networks is required.

backtotop.gifTraining Course Target

  • After the course the student will have a clear understanding of the IMS-internals and how the different IMS-network elements interact among each other and with the user.
  • The student will be able to list the IMS-related protocols and to describe their functions.
  • Most importantly, the student is enabled to contribute to IMS-related discussions and work assignments.
