Description

The Cisco Service Provider Mobility Intermediate LTE (LTE200) v1.0 is a 2.5-day instructor-led course that introduces learners to managing, monitoring, and configuring the Cisco ASR 5000 Series devices, and building the required services to support an LTE/SAE public mobile LAN network.
Learners focus on the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards and how the Cisco ASR 5000 Series devices are configured to support 4G entities, such as Mobility Management Entity (MME), SGW Gateway, and PDN Gateway (PGW). Learners build and monitor single subscriber call flows with default and dedicated bearers on the Cisco ASR 5000 Series devices.
Learners use troubleshooting techniques for the entire LTE/SAE packet core throughout the course.

Objectives

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:
  • Basic service configuration for a MME
  • Basic service configuration for an SGW
  • Basic service configuration for a PGW
  • Monitoring the system for subscriber sessions
  • Basic debugging of attachment failure
  • Monitoring subscriber bearers, attaching a request through the Cisco ASR 5000 Series device, seeing how resources for each service are dedicated, and detecting the flows as they traverse the switching fabric
