Course Overview

The Cisco® Service Provider Mobility Intermediate LTE course is an instructor-led course offered by Cisco Learning Services. It provides detailed instruction on how to manage, monitor, and configure the Cisco ASR 5000 and ASR 5500 and Virtual Packet Core (VPC), and build the required services to support an LTE/SAE public mobile LAN network.

You focus on the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards and how the ASR is configured to support 4G entities, such as Mobility Management Entity (MME), SGW Gateway, and PDN Gateway (PGW). You build and monitor single subscriber call flows with default and dedicated bearers on the systems. Troubleshooting techniques for the entire LTE/SAE packet core are used throughout the course.
