Advanced VoLTE Training, Voice over LTE (VoLTE)

Advanced VoLTE Training covers VoLTE planning, VoLTE implementation, end-to-end signaling, security, validation and verification, testing, operations and troubleshooting.

Learn about the importance of QoS and policy control to VoLTE, delivery of rich media services, differentiated services to handle various services including  voice, rich media, and video services, and finally VoLTE client end-to-end access and the role of UE/eNB across VoLTE.

Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is the set of LTE standard for voice call and rich multimedia setup and management. Learn about  IMS and SIP signaling to setup multimedia sessions in VoLTE including IMS call setup and release, SMS over IMS and RCS.

Learn about VoLTE and IMS procedures and challenges, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) procedures, effect of inter-RAT (Radio Access Technology) mobility, policy and Quality of Service (QoS) challenges when planning, designing and managing VoLTE deployments.

TONEX Advanced VoLTE Training created and designed by LTE and  VoLTE experts, covers a practical framework and step-by-step approach for thoroughly planning, evaluating, testing, validating, operating, troubleshooting and managing all aspects of  VoLTE to ensure a high-performing VoLTE deployment. Advanced VoLTE Training covers VoLTE/IMS/SIP procedures and scenarios dealing with major VoLTE and IMS functions, security, QoS and performance.
