Nokia Mobility Manager

Course Number: ER00648-V-1712
Course Duration: 5 days
Price: $3,425 US

Course overview

The Nokia Mobility Manager course is designed to introduce the Mobility Management Entity (MME) component of the Evolved Packet Core (EPC). The course examines the interfaces, functionality, EPS mobility management (EMM), EPS session management (ESM), and mobility management (MM) procedures used in the EPC, with emphasis on the MME. Comprehensive hands-on lab exercises and case studies are included to reinforce the course learning objectives. Upon course completion, participants will have a solid working knowledge of MME and be able to deploy and support the functionality on a Nokia Cloud Mobility Manager (CMM).

Course objectives

After completing the course, students should be able to:

  • Describe the role of the Mobility Management Entity (MME) in the Evolved Packet Core (EPC)
  • Describe MME/SGSN’s logical interfaces used for signaling and communication with other 2G/3G/LTE components
  • Describe the functions of MME in EPS Session Management (ESM) and EPS Mobility Management (EMM)
  • Describe the roles of SGSN in Session Management (SM) and Mobility Management (MM)
  • Describe the interworking support provided by SGSN/ MME between GERAN/UTRAN and E-UTRAN
  • Describe the two network sharing approaches: multi-operator core network (MOCN) and gateway core network (GWCN)
  • Explain functions and architecture of MME supported end-user services including circuit switched fallback (CSFB), voice over LTE (VoLTE) service, IMS emergency service, location-based service (LBS), warning message delivery service, multimedia broadcast/multicast
    service (MBMS), and lawful interception (LI)
  • Perform basic Command Line Interface (CLI) configuration on the Nokia Cloud Mobility Manager (CMM) to support a successful LTE attach procedure



  • Configure ciphering algorithms, integrity algorithms, roaming agreements, paging policies, emergency profiles and warning message delivery services on Nokia CMM
  • Describe the overload control mechanism in MME/SGSN
  • Describe the load balancing mechanism in MME
  • Describe procedures used for MME and Serving Gateway (SGW) restoration
  • Describe the authentication and key agreement (AKA) and NAS security mode command (SMC) procedures performed by MME
  • Explain user account and user role management in Nokia CMM
  • Analyze, initiate and verify various LTE procedures on the Nokia CMM: attach, dedicated bearer setup, tracking area update, S1 release, service request, handover, and detach
  • Troubleshoot basic issues on the Nokia CMM using debugging tools
