Exploring VoLTE: KPIs and Error Codes
LTE_131d | On-Demand | LTE and VoLTE | 1
Course Duration: 0.5 hours
Evaluating the performance of Long Term Evolution (LTE) and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) networks can be challenging, given the complexity of the networks and the wide variety of services carried over them. The wireless industry has adopted a common set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for LTE and VoLTE, allowing operators to develop a consistent set of monitoring tools independent of the specific vendors involved. This self-paced eLearning course defines these KPIs, discusses typical target values for each one, and describes typical failure scenarios for each of the metrics. In addition, the signaling protocols used in VoLTE operations can provide additional insights into certain failures, through the use of error codes and cause codes included in the messages.
