“Wireless Access Technologies
to Internet Network”

​8 – 15 March 2021

Course Description

This course focuses on Wireless Access Technologies to Internet Network including technical, business and regulatory aspects. It includes wireless and mobile evolutions including mobility approaches by IETF and 3GPP, 4G access technologies by 3GPP (LTE/LTE-Advanced), as well as Evolved Packet Core (EPC). The course also covers the other 5G technology accepted by the ITU umbrella IMT-2020, 5G New Radio (5G NR) and 5G Core, as well as WiFi access technologies from the IEEE. Further, it includes QoS (Quality of Service) in mobile and wireless networks, mobile VoIP (Voice over IP) and mobile IPTV, OTT (Over The Top) broadband Internet services in wireless and mobile networks, as well as QoS assessment and QoS parameters for mobile services. Finally, the course focuses also on regulatory and business aspects for wireless and mobile broadband access to Internet.
