5 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Service Provider

Course Details

The SPCDMA – Cisco Service Provider Mobility CDMA Networks v1.0 course is an instructor-led training for customers who use Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) packet core products.

In five-days, network professionals will improve their skills and knowledge in implementing CDMA packet core architecture fundamentals. The major part of the course includes detailed information on 3rd Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2) standardised technologies that are implemented on the PDSN/HA Packet Data Serving Node (PDSN) and Home Agent (HA). It also includes the PDSN and HA interaction with authentication, charging, and billing components on the network.

This course covers the configuration details of how the PDSN and HA components are implemented on the Cisco ASR 5000 Series system. A portion of the course is dedicated to explaining how a CDMA access network can interwork with a 4G packet core. The role of the High Rate Packet Data (HRPD) Serving Gateway (HSGW) is discussed as well as configuration details.
