5G Essentials

Learn 5G service-based architecture, slicing, ssc mode in 5g, amf 5g, gpsi 5G, and more. Learn how 5G accomplishes its goals by observing how it actually works.

5G is the next-generation of mobile networks beyond the 4G LTE mobile networks existing today. The vision of 5G is becoming clearer and most experts say 5G will feature network speeds that are blazingly fast at 20 Gbps or higher and have low latency at mere milliseconds. The entire 5G approach takes advantage of containers, virtualization, SDN and NFV.

Mobile telephony has been around for a while. It is very possible that people entering this industry may lack sufficient grounding in how we got to where we are now. Many of the new standards predicate knowledge of previous architectures, greatly raising the barrier of entry for anyone new that is trying to enter the world of 5G. We start this course by reviewing how we got here and where 5G is taking us.

Anyone who needs a high-level overview of complete 5G rollout, Management, Planners and Project Managers.

What You'll Learn

Day One, this course covers just enough of the basics to understand how mobile telephony has changed over the past 27 years and where it is today. Students will cover the architectures of 2G to 4G networks, and 4G to 5G, learning why each new generation was needed, what changed, and what remained with each new generation.

Days two and three will cover in detail, the design motivation and underlying technology of 5G service-based architecture as well as new vocabulary terms. We will cover enough about 5G radio to understand the differences between 4G and 5G, and finally, take a look at the 5G core in action. Sample message flows of typical 5G processes are covered message by message. The goal is to clearly see how 5G accomplishes its goals by observing how it actually works.
