Overview of Modern Carrier Networks

Geoff Myers

Category: Carrier-Based Networking

Length: 8 hours

Prerequisite: None


The fast growth of data traffic, especially the traffic from new network applications such as VoIP and IPTV, makes it a dominant force in today’s carrier networks. Although traditional voice traffic is still a major revenue source for those incumbent network service carriers, they are seeking a way to convert IP traffic into profits too. Such a data traffic evolution also causes the evolution of the carrier networks from the past voice-oriented network architecture to today’s data-oriented network architecture. Participants in this course will explore the factors leading to the converged services, the key enabling innovations, and the issues that the technologies address.
