Introduction to 5G

Course Overview

This course is part of our introductory series we are currently developing. It covers a broad basis of 5G technologies and the associated network topology. Each topic is broken down into fundamental segments to make it easy to understand, whilst still discussing reasoning behind the technology, how it works and why it is needed. The course has been developed in-line with 3GPP and ITU-R publications.

Duration

1 Day

Delivery Method

  • Classroom
  • Tutor Led
  • Demonstrations
  • Syndicate exercises
  • Lectures

Audience

This course is aimed at people already familiar with telecoms principles who are looking to gain some entry level knowledge of 5G. A broad range of topics are covered that would allow a student to conduct further research in-more depth if they so wish. Project managers and network engineers would definitely benefit from this course, as well as anyone wanting to specialise in 5G.

Prerequisites

There are no course prerequisites
