NextGen Networks (NGN) Explained: For All Audiences (Course N-NGN)

  • ID: 2155597
  • Region: Global
  • Eogogics

Target Audience, Prerequisites, and Brief Description

This half day self-study course is aimed at all who need a quick, “technical light” introduction to Next Generation Networks (NGN).

You will learn that NGN means many different things. We will look at them from the perspective of traditional carriers, service providers, managed service providers, and end-user organizations. The course will help you acquire a multi-faceted view of NGN's while understanding how they are evolving and how your own job fits into that evolution. We will allot plenty of time for questions/answers, discussion, and audience polls to capitalize on the interactivity offered by the WebLive™ system.
