NHA: Next generation networks

 

Telecommunications has experienced major changes in the last few years but perhaps the most radical transformation is occurring now with the introduction of next generation networks (NGNs). Operators are also exploring the benefits of software defined networking (SDN).
These technologies promise long-term cost savings for operators and innovative new services for both residential and business customers.
This course introduces the advantages, architecture, key technologies and service capabilities of IP-based next generation networks while considering the implications of migrating from a conventional system to an NGN and then to SDN and network function virtualisation.
