5G Cellular Networks


As 5G cellular networks takes their place as the new cellular technology, we bring this course to introduce the 5G network architecture, new radio, operation and security. The course provides an overview of the 5G network architecture and applications, starting with introducing the motivation for the new technology, the network architecture and new components, basic network procedures and operation, security and compatibility issues.


Course Objectives

Upon completing the course, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the architecture and components of 5G cellular networks
  • Understand the principles of the new radio technologies in the 5G network
  • Understand network functionality including network slicing and security
  • Understand network features towards IoT technology



The following topics are covered in the course

  • 5G network architecture
  • 5G New radio access
  • 5G protocols, data flows and network slicing
  • 5G security and R.16/R.17 features


Target Audience

Network engineers, R&D, Tech-support and marketing



Basic understanding of previous cellular network architectures and radio technology
