5G Courses, Training and Seminars for Engineers and Non-Engineers. Learn from Experts
5G training should be on everyone’s to-do list – that and staying in the loop regarding 5G’s progress.
That’s because 5G architecture is not only big technology, it’s also big commerce. Considering what’s at stake for companies, industries and individuals, staying in the 5G network loop is essential.

Forecasters predict there will be over 1.5 billion people connected to 5G by 2024 when most 5G networks are built-out. By 2035 5G technology is expected to create approximately $3.6 trillion in economic output and 22.3 million jobs.
Understanding 5G encompasses the understanding of fine-turned technology enabled to help 5G reach its post build-out potential.
Network slicing for example should play a key role in 5G deployments. Network slicing is about delivering multiple network events over one shared infrastructure. Basically, network operators are able to quickly generate and deploy “slices” of the network and customize them according to a customer’s or system’s needs be that speed, latency or power output.
Many feel network slicing will assume a central role to support 5G mobile networks that are designed to efficiently embrace a plethora of services with very different service level requirements (SLA).
The realization of this service-oriented view of the network leverages on the concepts of software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) that allow the implementation of flexible and scalable network slices on top of a common network infrastructure.
From a business model perspective, each network slice is administrated by a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). The infrastructure provider (the owner of the telecommunication infrastructure) leases its physical resources to the MVNOs that share the underlying physical network. According to the availability of the assigned resources, a MVNO can autonomously deploy multiple network slices that are customized to the various applications provided to its own users.
5G courses also help leaders and their teams understand the 5G timetable rollout, which helps organizations better plan budgets and projections for the various stages of 5G deployment.
The major U.S. carriers began rolling out their 5G technology in April-May 2019. But analysts predict it will take at least five years before 5G is fully functional. That’s because the infrastructure of 5G technology is substantial due to the need for building many small dish base stations to support the new architecture.
About 25 base stations are needed per square mile to accommodate 5G’s mmWave penetration issues as well as mmWave’s inability to travel long distances. Time needed to build out this infrastructure was the main catalyst for carriers needing to start their 5G services on the back of older 4G technology that was already in place.
However, that is also in the process of change as telecom companies this year are breaking away from hybrid 5G (non-standalone) in favor of fully standalone 5G, which will allow operators to deliver high-quality voice service without having to rely on VoLTE (voice over LTE) or an LTE anchor.
Voice over New Radio marks the maturity of the 5G end-to-end ecosystem. Advantages of standalone 5G over the non-standalone version are considerable, and includes:
- Lower costs for operators
- Better performance for users
- Eliminates the issue of “upswitching” latency (this occurs when a device first switches from LTE to 5G)
- Enables a range of new services and simplifies network architectures
