5G Networks

  • Course Program

5G is the next generation of radio systems and network architecture that delivers extreme broadband, ultra-robust, low latency connectivity, and massive networking for the Internet of Things. As LTE technology evolves toward 5G, it’s vital for technical professionals and industry leaders to understand how to deliver on the 5G vision and meet consumer demand for higher communication speeds. In this cutting-edge course program, produced in cooperation with Nokia, learners will receive an in-depth view of performance requirements, future scenarios, and the roadmap to implementation. The program also explores the intricacies of 5G standardization by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee.

These courses are designed for professionals working on 5G implementation, including service fulfillment personnel who will be supporting 5G, engineers and technical professionals with telecommunications backgrounds who want to expand their knowledge of 5G, and telecommunications leaders who are preparing their organizations and systems for the future.

What you will learn:

  • What is driving 5G as well as the technical performance requirements for radio systems to be able to support 5G New Radio and Core networks
  • Network Interfaces protocols and the main functions of each protocol layer
  • 5G technology components (including 5G Spectrum, Massive Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and 3D-Beamforming principles, and Multi-RAT Dual Connectivity)
  • Main features of 5G Core Network and 5G Radio Access
