University Module – Mobile Networks

Get ready to be boosted by 4G LTE and 5G NR skill set!

The Mobility Module brings you classes that help you gain technical insight and deep understanding of the mobile networks you are using everyday whenever you touch your phone. We will focus on Radio Access Network, Core Network as well as Transport Network that binds it all together. We will also bring you the latest news on 5G that we have just launched in our AT&T Network.

Classes in Mobile Networks module are led by mentors who are networking professionals with years of experience in the mobile and transport networks. The theoretical information will be covered in logical clusters and where possible you will be presented with real network demonstrations or even get a chance to practice by yourself.

Initial Class – Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Mobile Network

Phone calls, instant messaging and browsing the Internet is part of our daily routine. Did you ever wonder what path does the packet with your text message take before it reaches mobile phone of your friend? Take a journey thru mobility network and get to know:

  • Radio Access Network 3G/4G
  • VoLTE
  • IP backbone network – Cisco/Nokia routers and switches
  • Core Network

This class will be on October 18th, 2019.

Transport Network for Professional Engineers

This class will further expand the basics you learned in the initial class. You will deep dive into the transport network space, all network elements protocols supporting mobility data transport will be presented to give you a better overview of how the network works in real environment. We will walk through the process of configuring real network scenario with Cisco and Nokia routers that support the mobile network. You will also get opportunity to practice on your own. Welcome to the Transport network:

  • Cables, fibers, port assignments
  • Routing in Transport – static, OSPF, BGP
  • Failure recovery
  • Differences in bandwidth requirements in 3G, 4G and 5G
  • Real examples on network devices

This class will be on October 25th, 2019.

Mobile Network – Deep Dive

If you realized the Mobile Networking is the way you want go after the initial class, join us in this class to raise your skills on the next level. You will learn how the network is designed, maintained and provisioned. You get a chance to meet our engineers and see the procedures and tools they use for implementation configuration changes in the network. We will show you the emerging 5G NR network, describe its architecture and bring you ahead of the game. Here is a high level overview of the topics:

  • 4G LTE – eNodeB, MME
  • 5G NR – gNodeB
  • Basic configuration procedures
  • Alarms and KPIs
  • Maintance of LTE Ericsson and Nokia networks

This class will be on November 1st, 2019.
