Duration and Training Format
10-days instructor-led training
5G is set to revolutionize the way we communicate, collaborate and exchange information.
With 5G New Radio (NR), it will support enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC), and massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC).
5G will bring us to the next era of immersive experiences and hyper-connectivity. It is predicted that by 2020, over 20 billion devices will be connected and in use globally and supported by 5G networks.
To embrace this exciting future, one needs to be 5G-ready and broaden one’s technical know-how in new technologies such as LTE Advanced Pro, SON, C-RAN, HetNet, Mobile Edge Computing, Massive MIMO, NFV, SDN, Network Slicing, Mesh Networks, and IoT.
Many telecoms companies are increasingly looking for hybrid engineers who are multi-skilled in the fields of Information Technology and Telecommunications. Hence, adding a complimentary skill set such as Cisco or Juniper certification to your portfolio would certainly help to boost your professional image and employability.
In relevance to the 5G job market, acquiring added skills and knowledge in scripting and open source is highly desirable too. Suffice to say, these new 5G technology skills acquired will remain applicable to one as they are transferable from industry to another.
As 5G needs to be deployed on top of existing 2G, 3G and 4G Networks, it is essential for one to learn 5G radio network planning alongside existing networks; for only by which, 5G can be implemented in the most cost-effective manner.
Who Should Attend:
This course aims to provide an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the 5G concepts to technical engineers, managers and technicians, consultants, communications professionals, network professionals and others who plan on using, evaluating or working with 5G Networks.
No prerequisite required, but prior knowledge of 3G and 4G will be an added advantage.
Methods of Instruction:
Lectures in Classroom, on Power-point slides, with interactive discussion, quizzes and exams
All participants will also receive comprehensive and updated course materials.
