    As operators migrate to the NG transmission platform, there is a need to revisit the entire gamut of transmission technologies in the context of high speed packet based payload delivery. The NG transmission networks provides a high speed QoS aware packet connectivity, meeting the increased demand of 4G traffic and triple play payload delivery.It maximizes the efficiency of existing fiber optic networks in the backhaul, aggregation and core networks, thereby reducing the operator’s CAPEX and OPEX. This course profiles provides a detailed analysis of the architecture and protocols of NG transmission options like L2 VPNs, NG SDH, Carrier Ethernet MPLS genres, NG Optical Networks and Psuedowires.

Who should attend?

    Engineers and Technicians involved in the design, planning, deployment, Operations and Maintenance of transmission systems including mobile backhaul.
