Seminars > TR208-5: GPRS Protocol Analysis and Signalling on the Air InterfaceCode: TR208-5 Radio Communication
Dipl.-Ing Reiner Stuhlfauth, Rohde & Schwarz
GPRS (General Packet Radio Services) expands the previous GSM radio communications network through packet-orientated data transfer. Thereby, a new protocol structure is introduced that expands the existing signals and carries out the data transfer. Some scenarios and sequences change compared to GSM, others are introduced based on the existing GSM protocol structure.
In this seminar the details of the protocol structure are explained, and the orders in layers 2 and 3 are introduced, as well as the levels of the GPRS radio resources, the GPRS Mobility management and session management. With the help of the analyzing tools from the GSM and GPRS protocol tester for mobile stations, CRTU-G, some scenarios and sequences on the air interface are analysed. The participants should have good knowledge of the GSM and the GPRS system or have taken part in the seminars TR108-4 as well as TR108-5.
Parameters of the GPRS system information
Different structures of a RLC/MAC block
GPRS Radio resource management signalling messages
GPRS Mobility management signalling messages
Scenarios such as GPRS attach, PDP Context Activation and channel allocation
Protocol analysis with CRTU-G protocol analyser
This course is aimed at engineers and technicians from the fields of development and quality-testing for GPRS end products, specialist personnel the GSM network operators and participants who are interested in GPRS signalling on the air interface.
