5G Network Transport

Autonomous vehicles in a smart city powered by 5G

For 5G, a highly scalable and future-proof network architecture is required to enable the deployment and operation of new revenue-generating services. The transport architecture is key to this, providing the necessary standard interfaces, requirements, and modeling to realize this intelligent, coordinated automation.

With 5G bringing a significant increase in capacity, along with more stringent requirements with regards to performance including lower predictable delay, loss, and jitter, it requires an estimated doubling of radio sites deployed and the need for architecture with new RAN and core interfaces. These requirements must not only be met by mobile equipment but also by the underlying transport network.

This course is designed for telecommunications engineers working in the 5G Network Transport design environment, as well as those who wish to extend their skills and knowledge in this domain.

Instructor-Led Training
[Classroom: 4 days / LIVE Virtual*: 28 hours]
*Note:
  • A minimum of 5 or more participants are required for a company-based LIVE Virtual course to commence
  • LIVE Virtual courses can be conducted for 5 hours or 7 hours daily. Please note that the number of training days will be extended if you opt for 5 hours daily.

At the end of this course, participants will be equipped with the necessary skills to perform 5G Network Transport design.
