This course focuses on the fundamentals of Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP), the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and the Cellular Phone Network with emphasis on understanding the requirements for convergence of these networks. Topics: voice and data communication and processing, signaling and subscriber access. Transport and access technologies discussed include ISDN, Frame Relay, ATM, SONET, DSL and cable modems. Packet speech services, protocols, Signaling System no. 7 (SS7), H.323, Session Initiated Protocol (SIP), and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) are also considered.
Please see our brief course introduction video on YouTube for more information.
The PSTN, VOIP and cell phone service are going to co-exist for the foreseeable future. The telecommunications professional needs to have a basic understanding of how they function and interface.
