This In-Depth SCTP training course examines the need for SCTP and the practical applications of SCTP. The course explores SCTP architecture, structure and operation of all aspects of SCTP in depth. Comprehensive lecture sessions are complimented with demonstrations and hands-on practical sessions examining the different aspects of SCTP using Wireshark SCTP traces. Delegates examine and understand SCTP protocol operation in depth.
SCTP Training Course Objectives
On completing this course, you will be able to:
Describe the protocol architecture used to transport SS7 over IP.
Understand SCTP protocol operation in depth.
Understand and decode SCTP protocol traces, using a protocol analyser such as Wireshark.
Select the appropriate options and mechanisms development of new signalling services.
Compare the services provided by TCP, UDP and IP with the SS7 MTP (Message Transfer Part).
Describe infrastructures using SCTP to transport SS7 over IP.
Ensure reliability by employing re-routing options.
Transport TCAP, ISUP and Q.931 ISDN Access Signalling over IP.
Discuss the security features of SCTP
Understand roaming using SCTP
SCTP Course Pre-requisites
Attendees require a good working knowledge of the TCP/IP protocol suite before attending this course.
Lifetime Post-Course Support
After completing this
SCTP training course, delegates receive lifetime post-training support from LEVER Technology Group PLC, to help them apply the technologies and skills they have learned with us, to provide career-long support, and to ensure they are better equipped for their future roles in IT and networking.
