Cisco SAE Gateway Training by TONEX

Cisco SAE Gateway Training, SAE-GW, SAEGW, Training, is a program covering Cisco® System Architecture Evolution (SAE) Gateway planning, architecture, Design, Implementation and optimization of CISCO SAE GATEWAY with Cisco® ASR 5×00. Cisco SAE Gateway Cisco® ASR 5×00 provides wireless carriers Packet Data Network (PDN) Gateway (P-GW), Serving Gateway (S-GW) functions and more in LTE/EPC.

The SAE-GW node is a combination of S-GW and P-GW nodes. SAEGW operates as a service on ASR5x00 and requires existing S-GW and P-GW services to be configured and mentioned inside SAEGW service configuration.
