Abstract
With the advent of the Internet, subscribers have looked to their Internet Service Providers to
provide them with a quality of service (QOS) and the necessary bandwidth that would enable the
proper functioning of the latest applications. In the beginning most of the applications were not
time sensitive and included applications such as general Internet browsing and email. In recent
years subscribers demand for applications such as video downloads, voice over IP (VoIP) and IP
television (IPTV) have made wire line ISP increase their bandwidth exponentially in order to
keep up with subscriber demand. Up until recently wireless service providers could service their
backbones with T-1 and E-1 backhaul connections as their subscribers primarily used voice
services with fixed bandwidth. With the introduction of 3G technologies service providers have
now enabled their subscribers with access to even more bandwidth and the ability to begin using
the same types (if not the exact same) applications that wire line ISP subscribers had enjoyed for
years.
This seminar looks to introduce and discuss the 3G standards bodies; the evolution from
TDM to IP based wireless service provider networks; the network components for both the 3GPP
and 3GPP2 architectures; each architectures technical interfaces; an overview of the quality of
service (QOS) mechanisms necessary for both 3G wireless standards; the network security
measures needed to operate these architectures; how deep packet inspection (DPI) has enabled
operators to control their network architectures more finitely; and a brief introduction to the 4G
Long Term Evolution architecture.
