Course Overview

The course reviews some of the key concepts that will shape the next generation of mobile systems – the 5G
5G standard, to be ready by 2020, is not only about new radio technologies, but also network architecture revolutions providing a full convergence of mobile network and Internet industries. It is single end-to-end protocol standard for the future mobile Internet!
The course reviews the 5G cutting-edge technologies and architecture like heterogeneous networks, device-to-device communications and others, as well as looks at 5G Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and virtualization methods like SDN and NFV.
The course also deals with the 5G major challenge of integrating technologies and concepts that were separately developed, into one network.

Who should attend?

Service providers, Network Equipment vendors, Value-added services developers, Regulators, Entrepreneurs and Everyone who seeks to better understand where the mobile Internet industry is heading


Basic telecom knowledge.
