    Course Details


    The Implementing Cisco® UMTS Packet Core Networks (SPUMTS) 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 General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) or the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) packet core. This five-day course is designed to help network professionals to improve their skills and knowledge to understand the GPRS and UMTS architecture fundamentals. The course also assists network professionals in preparing for the Cisco Service Provider Mobility UMTS to LTE Specialist Certification. The SPUMTS Version 1.0 course is designed to teach professionals the skills required to understand and implement technologies and components found in UMTS networks. The course provides information about packet core components and their role in the UMTS network. The major part of the course includes detailed information on standardized technologies that are implemented on the Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN) and the Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN), and their interaction with authentication, charging, and billing components in the network of the mobile operator. This course also includes configuration details of how these components are implemented on the Cisco ASR 5000 Series system.
