The Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) is the most widely adopted technology for second-generation (2G) digital mobile telephony in the world. Almost one in two people on the planet has a GSM-enabled mobile phone and GSM accounts for more than 80% of the global mobile phone market. The General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) is a supplemental feature for GSM networks that enables packetized user data to be carried efficiently across an IP-based core network.
GPRS is an important part of most GSM networks worldwide and it is a stepping-stone to the provision of more advanced multimedia-based services. The courses in this category cover all aspects of GSM and GPRS operation from the radio air interface through to the core network. There are courses that would suit engineers who need to add to their existing knowledge on the subject and those who are completely new to these technologies. This category also covers planning and optimization of GSM/GPRS networks enabling engineers to understand the technology, techniques and software tools appropriate to these tasks.
A technical introduction to the world of GSM. This course describes the services, structure and operation of a GSM mobile network.
