IGFF NET 5012
- Understand the key elements of service architecture
- Understand the transition from circuit switch to packet switch systems
- Understand the basics of VoIP
- Get familiar with the main standardisation bodies for fixed and mobile communication and learn how to use standards
- Conceive a simple service and propose a high-level specification
- The coursework introduces students to Next Generation Services, with a focus on Service architectures. The course describes in detail how communication services are conceived, developed and deployed in wireline and wireless networks.
- The course concentrates on NGN (Next Generation Networks) architectures and Web-Telco convergence. The courses also address the evolutions of the IMS (e.g. TISPAN, IMS-based IPTV) that will significantly change the telecommunication industry worldwide with the replacement of today’s networks.
- The course also cover today’s networks, to allow the students understand the changes that the world of telecommunications and internet is facing such as the Internet of Things. Message flows and procedures are thoroughly examined in class and in small student groups to strengthen understanding. CAMEL-based service architectures, IMS/NGN service architectures are particularly emphasized.
- The course also introduces the alternatives to operator-centric architectures to provide communication services to the users. Other approaches such as Peer-to-Peer systems, web-NGN convergence, user generated services are introduced.
- Knowledge on signalling and control protocols and procedures in fixed or wireless networks (Cf. NET4508 & NET5011 at Télécom SudParis)
