VoLTE System Engineering

As IMS based VoLTE becomes the prevalent voice service enabler for 4G, this course will cover the key elements of the end to end operation of a VoLTE network. Topics covered include the VoLTE architecture, with focus on the main technologies required, namely LTE, PCC and IMS. Procedural aspects are also covered, from initial registration, through to call establishment and PSTN interworking. Finally, complimentary technologies such as ICS, SR-VCC and VoWi-Fi will be examined.
