Fundamentals of 5G For Managers

Fundamentals of 5G For Managers training course provides an overview of the 5G technology, use cases, services, products, and solutions. It helps participants to prepare for collaboration with various technical teams for effective strategies, planning, procurement, management, and deployment.

The course is multi-disciplinary in nature and aims to cover a whole host of intertwined subjects that will predominantly influence the 5G landscape, including the 5G products, segments, services, role of cloud computing, Edge computing, virtualization, mmwave, small cells, 4G/5G integration, dynamic spectrum management, 5G QoS and security challenge.

Class Activities and Collaborative Exercises

In-class Activities, Homework, Case Studies, Business Simulation and Group Discussions.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for managers and non-engineers including sales, marketing, business development, analysts, finance, HR, procurement, and other disciplines who need a clear picture of 5G technology. The course is also useful for those who have experience with 5G but have never had any formal training.

Prerequisite

None
