Description

The Cisco Policy Suite Core Technologies for Mobility (CPSCTM) is a 5-day instructor-led lab-intensive course that introduces the learners to the Cisco Policy Suite.
This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure that learners are able to successfully deploy and implement the Cisco Policy Suite. The course covers mobility deployment through lecture and configuration exercises in the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) networks with Diameter using a previously installed CPSCTM Software Suite.

The course is available only as a private group training (up to 12 people).
