This course provides detailed instruction on how to configure and monitor the Cisco® ASR 5000 to function as an evolved packet data gateway (ePDG) in a 4G Wi-Fi offload network environment.
Upon completion of this course, you should have a thorough understanding of the following aspects of the platform:
- Performing basic service configuration and monitoring of the ePDG
- Monitoring the system for proper subscriber session establishment
- Basic debugging of initial attachment failure
At the completion of this course, all participants receive a certificate of completion.
