Next Generation networks must deliver IPTV, Voice over IP as well Internet access services. Networks may cover the complete services of a national carrier, Regional carriers or local rural carrier services. Equally corporations must design service networks to meet their current and future needs. The scale of the networks may be different but the techniques used for Engineering and Architectures are common.
Considerable experience exists in the sizing and design of circuit switched TDM voice networks. This enables the appropriate technologies to match the need. Less experience exists in the design of IP based next generation networks. However the services of Triple Play networks may well be dominated by the requirements for quality video and for integrated delivery of all services.
This course addresses the underlying skills of sizing, network analysis and network design applied to this new generation of services. It will provide a practical understanding of the necessary theory together with the application of these using spread-sheets prepared for the purpose. It will examine the infrastructure requirements, multicasting configuration needs and the sizing for delivery of services that match customer expectation.
