5G is expected to support significantly faster mobile broadband speeds and heavier data usage than previous generations while also enabling the full potential of the Internet of Things.
The course is addressed to network engineers involved in the network design and optimization, managerial staff responsible for network operation and anybody who requires detailed knowledge on 5G NG-RAN signaling and function.
WHO WOULD BENEFIT
This detailed technical course is intended for engineering and related job functions who need to get an in-depth understanding of 5G NG-RAN architecture and operations.
Basic knowledge of the current wireless and mobile communications systems and standards including LTE and LTE-Advanced.
