Description: The ANSI-41 MAP is a mobile application standard that provides a means to perform mobility management including mobile qualification, intersystem handoff, voice services, short message service and roaming. It is the standard used in CDMA networks. This course details the structure and call flow scenarios as defined in the various 3GPP2 standard. Also shown, is how the various network entities communicate with each other. Emphasis will be placed on SCCP, TCAP and the MAP application with ANSI and ITU-T comparisons.

Exercises are provided throughout the course, re-enforcing a practical understanding of the material. Each student will receive a workbook with supporting text and references.


Course Prerequisites: A basic knowledge of mobile networks is helpful, but not required.


What You Will Learn: The student will gain valuable knowledge of how mobile services are accomplished in todays ANSI-41 networks. This includes how to analyze and decipher critical parameters within the SS7 protocol structure and the Mobile Application Part (MAP) application. You will also learn important call flow scenarios and how network entities communicate vital information in a mobile network.
