5G System Principles

  • Course Program

Learn about 5G technology components (including 5G Spectrum, Massive Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and 3D-Beamforming principles, and Multi-RAT Dual Connectivity) along with the main features of 5G Core Network and 5G Radio Access. This segment will focus on how the 5G system has been standardized thus far and how the roadmap for 5G standards will be deployed. A timeline of the rollout will be presented.

IEEE 802.11 Radio Technology Components with Focus on 802.11ax, 11ad, 11ay, which focuses on how IEEE 802.11 radio systems are integrated into the 5G architecture.

What you will learn:

  • Describe 5G system evolution starting from 2G
  • State potential use cases of 5G
  • Explain massive Multiple Input Multiple Output(MIMO) and Beamforming principles
  • Describe Multi-RAT Dual Connectivity in 5G
  • Discuss relevant standards focusing on 802.11ax, 802.11ad, and 802.11ay
