This course covers the next major phase of wireless and mobile communication technologies and standards beyond the current 4G/IMT-Advanced Standards.

The course covers 5G technologies in full depth and breadth and includes topics like radio channels, RF, antennas, propagation, architecture, components, cellular/backhaul and applications that will revolutionize the form and operation of mobile network operators.

Participants will find out how 5G wireless networks perform as compared to 4G, in terms of speed, agility and intelligence. New trends and services such as D2D. IoT, Smart Cities, Autonomous Driving, low latencyremote control, are just some of the use cases that operators will be able to leverage to boost their business towards the new era of all-software defined businesses.
