IMS & PCC System Engineering

With the advent of technologies such as LTE, next generation services and charging are now being controlled by IMS and PCC functions; a critical element in a service provider’s requirement to support seamless and rich multimedia services. For those needing to gain an understanding of this service overlay, this course provides a comprehensive technical explanation of how this is achieved. Furthermore, the course also incorporates real signalling analysis using Mpirical’s innovative network analyzer – NetX.
