This intensive full-day day course is ideally designed to provide a high-level technical overview of 5G technology: looking at requirements, end-to-end architecture & applications and helping to align the different pieces of the puzzle together to create a complete picture.

Why should you choose this course?

Mobile technology is moving at an unbelievable pace. The first data service for the mobile phone was launched in 2000. Since then we have had 3G & 4G roll outs. After a slew of trials and announcements in the last few years, this year 5G is fast becoming a reality. 5G launches from many national, European and International operators have shown that this is going to be the next big battleground. This is just the start, 5G will be differentiated not just on speeds but on the different services a network will be able to offer.

Back when 2G & even 3G networks were rolled out, nobody could have foreseen the impact smartphones would have in our daily lives. Mobile devices have not only become the primary medium for connecting to the internet, but these small devices have computational power far greater than the computer used in Apollo 11, the spaceflight that first landed man on the moon. As mobile technology-based devices are evolving, they can do far more than just messaging, calling and mobile broadband. For example, Machine-to-machine (M2M), Internet of Things (IoT), Mobile TV, Public safety, etc. are some areas where this technology is also being used.

This intensive day-long course is ideally designed to provide a high-level technical overview of the 5G technology: looking at requirements, end-to-end architecture, use cases & applications and help align the different pieces of the puzzle together to create a complete picture.

Who should attend?

This course is ideally designed for people who are familiar with mobile technology, especially 3G and/or 4G technology. While a more detailed technical knowledge would be helpful, it will still have plenty to offer to others who may not be very familiar with the details.

The following people would benefit by attending this course:
• Senior Managers / Directors
• Project/Programme managers who are new in their role
• Sales/Marketing people
• Coders, Testers and Technicians
• Anyone else wishing to learn about 5G technology in general.

What is the course outcome?

By the end of the course you are expected to understand the motivation for moving beyond 4G, onto 5G. You will become familiar with the architecture and the different technical options. If you are attending it for work reasons, then this should help you in your daily work and if you are attending it just to understand the technology then it should help you understand many new topic areas.
