    Course Details


    The Implementing Cisco® CDMA Packet Core Networks (SPCDMA) Version 1.0 is an instructor-led course that is presented by Cisco training partners to customers who use products that are part of the Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) packet core. This five-day course is designed to help network professionals improve their skills and knowledge in implementing CDMA packet core architecture fundamentals. The major part of the course includes detailed information on 3rd Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2) standardized technologies that are implemented on the PDSN/HA Packet Data Serving Node (PDSN) and Home Agent (HA).The PDSN and HA interaction with authentication, charging, and billing components on the network are also discussed. This course includes configuration details of how the PDSN and HA components are implemented on the Cisco ASR 5000 Series system A portion of the course is dedicated to explaining how a CDMA access network can interwork with a 4G packet core. The role of the High Rate Packet Data (HRPD) Serving Gateway (HSGW) is discussed as well as configuration details.
