Course Overview:

IMS Training | IP Multimedia Subsystem Training Course by Example

In this IMS Training | IP Multimedia Subsystem Training course, you will study IMS from all angles including the technology, status of wireless and wireline standards, key challenges posed by the technology, financial drivers for its adoption, deployment, and even security considerations. With IMS Training | IP Multimedia Subsystem Training, you will also study the issue of network policy and how the different levels and types of policies for QoS and admission control have important bearing on traffic engineering in the evolving networks. We will conclude with a look at the future of telecommunications networks, including a flat, all-IP infrastructure.

Communications networks are rapidly evolving into policy-based, packet-oriented networks designed to provide a particular quality-of-services (QoS) for subscribers while reducing the costs associated with capital expansions, network operations, and management. If you are involved with telecommunications engineering, deployment, strategy, marketing, or services creation, it is critical that you understand the technology and business implications of IMS.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this IMS Training | IP Multimedia Subsystem Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
