Mobile IP Training course introduces the technical fundamentals of Mobile IP (MIP). Mobile IP is a standard developed by IETF for the purpose of providing macro mobility across a set of different radio access technologies.

The course starts with an overview of mobility and wireless technology, including implementation issues. Mobile IP is also addressed, including operations, components, and protocol. The course also includes sections with a summary of best practices to consider in Mobile IP operations and management.

Who Should Attend
