Course Objectives

This course describes how LTE/EPS and HSPA networks support QoS for various IP-based services from terminal (UE) to Gateway (GGSN/PGW). The course defines and describes QoS concepts and parameters, and examines how QoS is achieved end-to-end and in various parts of the network, such as Radio QoS, Backhaul QoS and Core Network QoS. It also outlines general IP QoS mechanisms and solutions, such as Diffserv and MPLS.

The course accounts for 3GPP-style PCC (Policy and Charging Control) and how high-level QoS parameters derived from service-level signalling are implemented in network nodes such as GGSN/PGW, SGSN/SGW and RNC/NB/eNB. The mapping of service- or subscriber-related QoS parameters to Bearer-level QoS for PDP Contexts or EPS Bearers is examined.
