ENG-515 5G and IoT





*This course is also available as a live distance learning course*

Current Telco architecture is transforming from being composed of vertically integrated discrete network elements to being cognitive, cloud-optimized and seamless in operation. Such next-generation networks will not be server-centric, but instead will focus on data and content requirements. Data and the applications that use it will be decoupled. The new network architecture will support easy scalability, have built-in security and privacy, enable energy efficient operation, offer lower Operational Expenses (OPEX), and flexibly support an extremely wide range of uses.

This 4-day course is designed to provide an overview of 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), from a technical point of view.
