GSM & GPRS System Engineering

This course explains the principles behind the world’s most successful second generation mobile network technologies; GSM and GPRS. In so doing, detailed explanations of the network elements are provided before the key network procedures are explored using Mpirical’s virtual protocol analyzer – NetX. This ensures you complete the course with a comprehensive understanding of how the networks actually operate today.
