ENG-518 5G & IoT Technical and Regulatory Perspective (Virtual Classroom)




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

Current Telco architecture will transform from comprising 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 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 security and privacy built-in, enable energy efficient operation, offer the lowest Operational Expenses (OPEX), and flexibly support an extremely wide range of uses.
Neotelis proposes a 3-day virtual classroom training (1/2 day x 6 sessions) to provide participants with an overview of 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), from a technical perspective. The course will also discuss some key regulatory challenges associated with the technologies.

Learning Outcomes

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

  • Identify 5G and IoT technology enablers and the features of both technologies

  • Understand the detailed 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

  • Understand what is IoT and describe the relationship between IoT and 5G

  • Explain the architecture, layers and stack for IoT and assess the features and requirements

  • Discuss key regulatory challenges and regulator's role in facilitating the rollout of 5G and setting the standards and regulations for IoT implementation

  • Explain the new business models needed for this new generation of technology and how operators can shift smoothly to 5G and pave the way towards industry 4.0
