Awards Solutions

Award Solutions, the Technology Training Partner of Mobile World Congress 2015, presented two dynamic sessions this year.


Attendees gained an essential understanding of VoLTE, including the architecture, operations, and the key capabilities and services provided by the IMS framework.


Attendees gained a conceptual understanding of VoLTE (Voice over LTE), and the IMS architecture in the context of an LTE access network.

Topics included:

  • Role of the CSCFs and HSS
  • Role of app servers (TAS, Presence)
  • Role of interworking nodes
  • Role of SIP and Diameter

Attendees gained expertise on the key operations between the UE and the LTE/IMS networks that support VoLTE services.

Topics included:

  • Registration in VoLTE
  • VoLTE to VoLTE Call Setup
  • Dedicated Bearer Setup
  • Interworking with PSTN

Part III: VoLTE, ViLTE, RCS and WebRTC
Attendees learned the capabilities of the IMS framework to create services ViLTE (Video over LTE), RCS (Rich Communication Services) and WebRTC (Web-based Real-Time Communications).

Topics included:

  • VoLTE
  • ViLTE
  • RCS
  • WebRTC

Attendees gained a critical understanding of NFV and SDN, including the benefits, challenges, and other considerations to ensure an efficient and successful transition towards next-gen architecture.


Part I: Transforming CSP Networks
Cloud, Virtualization, Open Source Software, NFV and SDN, plus the rollout of all IP networks are creating huge changes for mobile CSPs. Attendees gained an understanding of the primary drivers and technologies transforming tomorrow’s networks.

Topics included:

The Network Transformation

  • Business drivers
  • Vision of future CSP network

Technology Drivers

  • Cloud Computing
  • NFV (Network Functions Virtualization)
  • SDN (Software Defined Networking)

End-to-End Transformed Network

Part II: Capacity and Reliability in the NFV World
As Communication Service Providers (CSP) transform their networks using technologies like Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), they need to consider the growth of the network based on capacity and reliability. This session reviewed all of the primary features of capacity and reliability and the expected benefits to the transformed CSP network.

Topics included:

NFV What and Why

  • Transitioning to NFV
  • NFV Architecture


  • Capacity features
  • Role of NFV and capacity
  • Capacity in action – LTE & VoLTE networks

End-to-End Transformed Network

  • Reliability features
  • Role of NFV and capacity
  • Capacity in action – LTE & VoLTE networks

Part III: NFV/SDN Interworking
NFV and SDN will each provide a benefit to a mobile CSP network, but together they will provide additional agility for CSP-based services. NFV and SDN will need to work together to support the migration of Virtual Network Functions (VNF), capacity, and reliability. This session focuses on how NFV and SDN will interwork with each other to all a CSP network to be as agile as possible.

Topics included:

The Network Transformation

  • Transitioningto NFV
  • Transitioning to SDN

NFV and SDN Interworking

  • Combined architecture
  • The SDN Controller and NFV Orchestration
  • Service Channing and Forwarding Graphs

SDN and NFV in action – LTE Network
