Description
The learning product GPRS Advanced System Technique handles the
protocols and the signaling in the GPRS system. It also handles mapping and
allocation of the GPRS channels and the main features of the air interface.
The course includes traffic cases handling both the core network and the air
interface.
The course together with the practical part (i.e. exercises) is a complement of
the GPRS system survey and will extend the areas described in this survey.

Target audience
The course is intended for technical customer staff, who need a global
understanding of GPRS Network, such as:

Cell planners

Technical support

Network designers

Prerequisites
Each student should have successfully completed:

GPRS System Survey

Learning objectives

4.1

Main learning objectives

(LZU 108 876)

After completing this course the student will be able to:

Describe the architecture of the GPRS Network

Explain the signaling between the nodes and the protocols.

Describe the logical channels and the messages sent on these


channels

Give an overview of the air interface (features and protocols)

Give an overview of the Gb interface

Describe the different types of interface in the core network

Describe how different traffic cases are handled by the system.
