NextGen Wireless 102: Operations, Architecture & Billing

foundation for successThe second day of the NextGen Wireless Hammer Head focuses on lines of business, architectures and billing in terms of NextGen Wireless. During the first half of the day, students will become familiar with the details of security, authentication and authorization for NextGen Wireless services, as well as the technical, operational and financial model details for the WiFI and WiMax lines of business. The second portion of this day is dedicated to reviewing 2G/Edge/GPRS, UMTS, LTE and IMS technology sets and different billing architectures for telecoms, their controls and applications. Billing architectures reviewed will include Postpaid, Prepaid, Radius, 95th Percentile, Bespoke and Convergent Billing models.

Part 1: NextGen Wireless: Lines of Business

The first part of NGW102 is focused on introducing students to the security, fraud protection, authentication and authorization for NextGen Wireless services. Students will then learn the operational, technical, financial and business model details for the WiFI and WiMax lines of business.

Practical Applications

foundation for success
  • Become familiar with the industry standard methods used to secure and authenticate wireless access (the EAP, GSM, CDMA, WEP, WPA, PPTP and others) and how they can be applied to their environments
  • Review the primary methods to authorize access for customers (the Navigation, Walled Garden, Firewall, inStream, DPI, BGP Community, HLR and IMS/HSS methods) and understand how and when they are best applied to their environments
  • WiFiI Briefing: Students will be provided with an exhaustive review of the standards, current market characteristics, common applications, future forecast, architecture, customer equipment, network infrastructure, topology and billing approaches utilized to assure the WiFi business and compare this to the other technologies
  • WiMax Briefing: Students will be provided with an exhaustive review of the standards, current market characteristics, common applications, future forecast, architecture, customer equipment, network infrastructure, topology and billing approaches utilized to assure the WiMax business and compare this to the other technologies

Key Concepts

  • Industry Standards Based Authentication Methods for Next Gen Wireless: How they work, where they are to be applied
  • Industry standards based authorization methods for NextGen Wireless: How they work, where they are applied
  • WIFI – In Depth Briefing
  • WiMax – In Depth Briefing

Part 2: NextGen Wireless: Architectures & Billing

The second half of this day will conclude our assessment of the Next Gen Wireless technologies. We will complete an in-depth review of the evolution and integration of the 2G/Edge/GPRS, UMTS, LTE and IMS technology sets. After going though these modules, students will have a solid grasp of how each technology works, the business models it engenders, the risks to revenues it creates, and the controls that can help assure both the migration process and the products offered. We will then review the different billing architectures for telecoms, and the customizations required to make them work for a NextGen Wireless OpCo. We will review the Postpaid, Prepaid, Radius, 95th Percentile, Bespoke and Convergent Billing models, their controls and applications.

Practical Applications

foundation for success
  • 2G/GPRS/3G/UMTS/HSPA Briefing: Students will be provided with an exhaustive review of the standards, current market characteristics, common applications, future forecast, architecture, customer equipment, network infrastructure, topology and billing approaches utilized to assure the 2G/GPRS/3G/UMTS/HSPA business and compare this to the other technologies
  • LTE and IMS Briefing: Students will be provided with an exhaustive review of the standards, current market characteristics, common applications, future forecast, architecture, customer equipment, network infrastructure, topology and billing approaches utilized to assure the LTE and IMS business and compare this to the other technologies
  • How to recognize, organize, assure and integrate new NGW solutions into postpaid billing environments, traditional wireless prepaid (SS7/INAP) environments, new or existing radius/diameter billing environments, new or existing SNMP/95thP Billing environments, new or existing Bespoke or Convergent Billing environments

Key Concepts

  • 2G/GPRS/3G/UMTS/HSPA – In-depth technical, architecture and business model briefing
  • LTE / IMS– In-depth technical, architecture and business model briefing
  • Principles of billing architectures and controls for Postpaid, Prepaid, Radius/ Diameter, SNMP/95thP, Bespoke and Convergent Billing Solutions
