This course describes the end-to-end 5G network (5GC, NG-RAN and IMS) and related operations for implementation of Voice over New Radio (VoNR). It provides key features and functionalities for the VoNR service including descriptions of the signaling procedures for IMS registration, Call Setup and release. The course also provides the description and signaling required for EPS fallback to VoLTE and procedures for emergency calling in 5G. The architecture for these services is described together with call flows showing the relationships between network functions in 5G and 4G RAN and core systems and the IMS and PCC networks. The course provides hands on exercises for students using log files if available. This training is delivered in a blended form with elements of self-paced and instructor led to enhance the learning experience and effectiveness.
