backtotop.gifTraining Course Description

Course Description

  • This training course is targeted at telecom engineers and technicians who are already familiar with TCP/IP-protocol suite and who require detailed and practical knowledge about advanced IPrelated issues like VoIP, SS7 and QoS in IP-networks and security in IP-networks.
  • The final 3 days of the training course sequence “IP for Telecom Professionals” are called “Advanced Issues”. After a short review of the IP-protocol suite the training course explains in detail the Interworking between IP and SS7 (<-> SIGTRAN).
  • In the next parts, the training course makes the students familiar with SIP-based VoIP and how these sessions are setup and released. The hands-on part requires the student to record some SIPsessions and evaluate these recordings. Note that our test network will include the related SIP-servers and clients.
  • One major focus of the training course is on QoS and how to provide it in IP-based networks. We present the major technical options like DiffServ and IntServ and we included a practical part in which QoS-parameters are configured within our test network by the students.
  • The final highlight of this training course is on security issues in IP-networks and how to tackle them. We illustrate the different technical possibilities and we included various hands-on exercises and presentations to make the students familiar with this very important IP-issue.


  • The student should possess detailed knowledge of wireline and/or wireless communications, particularly within the area of operation or engineering.
  • Very good knowledge of the TCP/IP-protocol suite and its architecture is necessary

backtotop.gifTraining Course Target

  • The student will be familiar with the important telecommunication related aspects of the IPprotocol suite.
  • The student will understand what the difficulties are in providing QoS in an IP-network. This enables the student to setup and operate their own QoS-aware IP-networks.
  • The student will be familiar with state-of-the-art IP-sniffers and how to use them to analyze network problems.
  • Last but not least, the student will know the different options how to secure any data transfer in IP-networks. Like for all the other parts, this includes the “playing around” with authentication and encryption setup, configuration and analysis in our test network.
