Overview

The EuroPacketCable technology provides a European cable operator with a system that enables packet-based telephony over IP.
The course introduces the attendee to all elements of the EuroPacketCable system for VoIP deployment; this goes from an overview of the different interfaces and components, the key issues concerning security and the MTA’s provisioning process, over call signaling and control, dynamic QoS and the back office, to the V5.2 gateway solution.

What can you expect?

  • Understand the EuroPacketCable architecture.
  • Gain an insight in the security, protocols and quality of service used in EuroPacketCable.
  • Have a clear understanding of the different call flows.
  • Benefit from the hands-on experience of the Excentis’ EuroPacketCable certification testing.
