5G New Radio, A New Standard and Industry Update Course Description

As industry moves toward accelerated 5G deployments, it is necessary for all players involved to have a good idea of what is on the horizon for initial 5G deployments. In this half-day course, the instructor will describe the general 5G architecture change from 4G, providing an overview of what technical enhancements are included in the recently published (Dec 2017) 3GPP 5G-NR Standard and the associated work currently taking place in the wireless industry. The focus of this course is to provide insights into the opportunities enabled by this standard in an easy to understand reference for business strategy. If you are looking to understand what is defined in the 3GPP Standard and how that relates to the ITU definition for 5G, this course will clarify that for you.

Who Should Participate

Students, practicing/young professionals, and anyone with general wireless experience seeking to gain an overall picture of the 5G landscape.  A basic understanding of mobile networks and in particular the 4G LTE network architecture and functions will enable a better understanding of the 5G concepts.
