Course Scope

  1. LTE Roaming Basics: The aspects covered will specifically address the needs of MNOs as they establish roaming agreements and relationships with other MNOs, both with and without legacy voice and data networks. We review GSMA standardised requirements and documents and take an in-depth look at best practices for roaming agreements and tariff negotiations that would support LTE.
    • LTE Roaming Architecture.
    • LTE Data Roaming
.
    • LTE VoLTE Roaming.
  2. LTE Devices and USIM cards: Roaming considerations with mutually incompatible technologies and LTE band fragmentation; its impact on roaming coverage and end user value.
    • LTE Band Fragmentation.

    • The Role of Devices
.
    • Multi-Mode Single Devices.
    • Multi-Mode Multi-Band Devices.
  3. Testing: Testing is critical to ensure roamers can use the visited network (VPMN) services or access their network to register and route back to their home network. We review the primary documentation for testing to support LTE and VoLTE.
    • IR.38 – LTE and EPC Roaming Tests.
    • IR.25 – VoLTE Testing.
    • The QoS Model in LTE.
  4. LTE Roaming Charging: The complexities of the new charging mechanisms required to support 4G roaming are much more abundant than in a 3G environment. We cover the nuances involved in prepaid and post-paid charging and what as the home network you should be aware of.
