Two-Days Workshop on
4th Generation Core Network Infrastructures (EPC/SAE/LTE)
February 3-4, 2012
Center of Research in Networks & Telecom (CoReNeT)
M. A. Jinnah University, Islamabad

By Mr. Inam Ullah, Head of Product Development, Turnotech Pakistan
This two-day training was designed to provide a good understanding of 4th Generation all-IP core network (SAE/EPC) for LTE/E-UTRAN based Radio Access Network (RAN). The emergence of IPv6 has laid the foundation for all future communication being rolled out on all-IP paradigm where every network node (BTS/NodeB, BSC/RNC, MME, PDG and MS) will essentially be IP-based, and all call setup signaling between these nodes will be based on IP based protocols such as SIP, Diameter, etc. This training was designed to provide a better understanding of EPS/SAE network context, its components and their roles, signaling procedures and services provisioning use cases.

4G group Picture

• Technically understand the 4G Core network and it’s benefits to operators and end-users
• Describe the roles of various EPC/SAE components
• Elaborate LTE/SAE Interfaces and Protocols
• Define Session/Call Setup Signaling Procedures in EPC/SAE
• Discuss QoS, Policy, Charging and Services in EPC/SAE Network

Who should attend:
The workshop is intended for people with background in data communications, telecom networks, IP networking, who are:
• Technical and business managers responsible for next generation network planning and deployment
• Engineers and consultants who are responsible for operating and designing network infrastructure & services
• Researchers and students seeking an in-depth understanding of next generation networks

Day 1 (9 am – 5 pm with lunch and refreshment breaks)
• Introduction to Evolved Packet Core (EPC)
• Basic introduction to E-UTRAN/LTE (air interface for EPC/SAE networks)
• EPC/SAE Architecture (Core network requirements, EPC network entities (HSS, MME, S-GW, P-GW), EPC interfaces, protocols for SAE/EPC )
• Major functions of EPC (authentication and security, policy charging and control, QoS, packet routing, mobility management, IP address allocation)
• Functional description EPC network entities (MME, HSS, S-GW, P-GW )
• Session Setup using EPC (overall call flow, interaction between E-UTRAN and EPC)

Day 2 (9 am – 5 pm with lunch and refreshment breaks)
• Mobility management within SAE (functionality of MME node, mobility & session management, S1-MME interface with E-UTRAN and related protocol stack)
• Services in EPC/SAE & IP Multimedia Subsystems (circuit and packet switched voice , IMS architecture and nodes, IMS protocols: SIP, SDP, RTP and RTCP)
• Quality of Service (EPS default bearer, EPS dedicated bearer, bearer establishment, QoS parameters, exchange of QoS parameters between EPS and service network)
• Policy control and charging (CC in UMTS/EPS , Policy Decision Function (PDF), Charging Rules Function (CRF), Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF), services interaction, flow based charging, policy control
