With the adoption of Wireless LAN, Unified Communications (UC), Voice over IP (VoIP), 3G and 4G mobile networks, cloud computing, and the next generation of voice and data services, telecom is undergoing a series of radical changes molded by the legacy of telephony and an Internet Protocol network.
This comprehensive course provides you with an in-depth understanding of the current telecom landscape and how voice is migrating from a circuit network to a packet-switched network. You will learn how to evaluate existing technology options to determine which will best meet your organization's data and telephony requirements, from mature digital transport/access services to emerging voice and data services using voice over packet technologies.
The technology, marketplace, and regulatory structure of telecommunications are in a continuous state of transition. This training will ensure that you fully understand the service options available to your organization, and how voice technologies integrate into your existing data networks.
