ENG-517 5G & IoT - A Technical and Regulatory Perspective





*This course is also available as a live distance learning course*

Current Telco architecture is transforming from being composed of vertically integrated discrete network elements to being cognitive, cloud-optimized and seamless in operation. Such next-generation networks will not be server-centric, but instead will focus on data and content requirements. Data and the applications that use it will be decoupled. The new network architecture will support easy scalability, have built-in security and privacy, enable energy efficient operation, offer lower Operational Expenses (OPEX), and flexibly support an extremely wide range of uses.
This 5-day course is designed to provide an overview of 5G from a technical and regulatory point of view.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify 5G technology enablers and the features

  • Describe the technical architecture and components of a 5G network

  • Discuss the challenges of migration to 5G and some use cases of this new type of network

  • Describe the applications and advancement of 5G, assess security considerations and the role of analytics and applications
