Course Summary
This programme is ideal for those engineers and technical managers focusing on the core network that need a deep understanding of the current core telecommunications network and a clear technical vision of the IP-based multi-media core network being specified and developed by the Industry. It is suitable for technical professionals working for large or small operators, or for those working with vendors developing technology. It focuses squarely on the issues affecting professionals working with the core network and those in related job roles, and delivers the knowledge and competencies needed to be as effective as possible. The programme steps through a range of topics that enable individuals to better evaluate, plan, innovate, and de-risk both technology choices and operations - and ensure their organisation can build value as effectively and efficiently as possible. The programme reviews current technology in order to set the context for in-depth discussion and evaluation of the emerging core network technologies, and implementation options. The topics then include major issues affecting operators, including optimising the IP-based architecture, meeting increasing capacity requirements, IP-based signalling and control, policy control, security, quality of service (QoS) implementation, the integration of femtocells and WiFi into a single core network, service delivery and the IMS, third-party services, roaming, interconnection, and vendor selection. Participants will finish the programme much better equipped to excel in their roles, and will gain the confidence to deliver the technology foundation on which the business can be developed.

Learning with PACE

The key to effective learning is how the competencies (knowledge, skills and confidence ) are developed, and in particular, how they are applied,both within the training and then more importantly in the work place. Our programmes are designed around this belief using the principle of PACE Preparation, Application, Consolidation, and Experience / Engagement. Some of the PACE features listed below will be included as standard, depending on your specific programme.

Pre course learning module(s) Online Webinars Technology Primer Topic-Specific Primer Industry Update Pre-course assessment / quiz

Additional Telecoms Virtual Campus tutorials On-going Technology Analysis and white papers Post course tutor support Networking & interaction via our Linked-In Groups Post-course assessment / quiz On-going post-course Development using the CDJ

Industry analysis from Informa Telecoms and Media analysts - applying the concepts to the industry Real Industry Case Studies and practical examples Exercises and Demonstrations Business Simulations Planning Exercises Industry and Technology Status Reports covering latest business trends and technology deployments Competency Development Journal (CDJ) - applying the learning within the work place

Experience / Engagement
Highly interactive delivery style Very experienced and highly focused trainers and Programme Directors Class dynamics moulded to facilitate maximum learning opportunity Individual attention throughout the learning process in order to meet learning objectives Full delegate participation in building and presenting business or technology plans Certified or Assessed training to focus learning

Outcomes and Competency Development

Participants will develop or be able to: Plan technology solutions that will fully meet the needs of their organisation in the short, medium and long term. Contribute much more effectively to decisions and discussions centred around core network technology and technical implementation Evaluate more rigorously the implementation options for emerging Core Network architectures and solutions Fully understand the requirements and likely technology scenarios of future IP-based Core Networks, including the integration of different access solutions into a common core Develop solutions in a more structured and informed manner, helping to de-risk investment choices whilst delivering technical solutions that can underpin future business development A solid foundation of knowledge and competencies, enabling innovative thinking and the confidence to develop and implement ideas Make decisions on technology implementation and procurement that are commercially viable, minimise risk, and in line with the strategy of the organization

Our Trainers
We only use trainers and programme directors that satisfy the following three criteria:

Experts in their field High level of Industry Experience Expert facilitators and training professionals

All our trainers have undergone a rigorous selection process and are subject to continuous monitoring and evaluation. Each trainer is accredited for specific courses or topic areas. Whether engineers or business experts, all our trainers are required to continue their own development within their specialist areas, and to broaden their Industry view of trends, best practice and technology. This is achieved by our on-going work with many tier 1 operators and vendors, and by full exposure to Informa Telecoms & Media research and world-wide events. Sample biographies for some of our trainers can be found here:

Our Faculty Structure

Our training programmes are delivered worldwide as part of the training and development plans of many large operators, vendors, and service providers. To ensure we fully meet the training needs of the industry, we have split our portfolio into specific faculties that reflect the required competencies: Faculty of Telecoms Business Business training is tailored to the telecoms industry and range from the intensive 5-day Telecoms Mini MBA programme to specialist leadership and marketing training. Faculty of Technology and Engineering Covering a multitude of technologies these courses range from overviews aimed at non-technical staff to in-depth engineering training. Distance Leaning Our comprehensive suite of Distance Learning programmes provide an excellent opportunity to expand your knowledge. School of LTE & Advanced Communications Brings together the very latest technologies in a single integrated training structure

University Accreditation PACE Enabled

Our programmes are PACE Enabled a training method that optimises both training value and student engagement. It delivers highly efficient competency development that is focused squarely on practical application in the work place. It is simple in concept and comprises four key elements; Some of our programmes have been accredited by, and are offered in partnership with the University of Derby Corporate; a UK-based university highly acclaimed in the area of employer engagement. They are at the forefront of the drive to integrate highly focused industry -led training with the academic rigor and quality control of university-based education. Our comprehensive Advanced Telecoms Management Series (ATMS) have been accredited at Level 7 (PostGraduate), with our extensive suite of Distance Learning at Level 4 (Undergraduate Level). We would be happy to discuss extending accreditation (and university qualifications for the participants) to tailored ATMS or programmes based on our Distance Learning modules. Although accreditation is specific to these programmes, the work we do with the University of Derby enable us to develop and apply best practice across our portfolio.

Preparation Pre-course preparation in order to

hit the ground running Application Applied Learning that focuses on practical application in order to maximise both training value and student engagement Consolidation Post-course continuing competency development, access to resources, access to tutors and on-going support Experience An outstanding end-to-end training experience designed to develop competences as effectively as possible
