Introduction to 5G

5G technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.

Higher performance and improved efficiency empower organizations that have laid the foundation for incorporating 5G technology into their future plans.

As America goes back to work, industries on 5G networks will be able to quickly compile and compute data and become more efficient and effective in their daily operations. In the healthcare and security sectors for example, 5G will enable real-time responses for mission-critical services, such as enabling surgeons to consult virtually on surgeries and supporting search-and-rescue solutions like drones that need to transmit large amounts of data.

5G-connected factory automation can improve manufacturing productivity, which will be important as the U.S. seeks to strengthen its onshore manufacturing capabilities.

Quicker and more efficient data transmission will also support precision farming in the U.S., enabling farmers to increase crop yields.

Bottom line, organizations need a solid plan for 5G employment.

It’s still not too late for your organization to get in on the ground floor of 5G technological advances – but the digital clock is ticking.

Quite frankly, the business potential of 5G is staggering. Industries are digitalizing, and current mobile technologies already support this transformation. 5G will further enhance industry digitalization use cases and will make possible others not at all supported today.

The list of advanced industry use cases enabled by 5G technology is a long one: remote control of heavy machinery in dangerous environments, drone field maintenance of power sub-stations and vehicle-to-vehicle cooperative collision avoidance – you get the picture.

But what is the revenue potential for telecom operators addressing these use cases, which are already transforming the manufacturing, utilities and automotive sectors?

Conservative estimates have found that by 2026 there is a USD 619bn revenue potential for operators addressing 10 specific industries with 5G – manufacturing, energy and utilities, public safety, healthcare, public transport, automotive, media and entertainment, financial services, retail and agriculture.

This corresponds to an additional 36% revenue growth potential on top of current operator service revenues. This is unarguably a substantial revenue pool. But to capture this opportunity will require a lot from the companies pursuing this path.

Standards for 5G are set by 3GPP.

Introduction to 5G Course by Tonex

Introduction to 5G is a 2-day training course covering next-generation of mobile networks beyond the 4G LTE mobile networks. Gain a working knowledge of 5G networking and communications standard. In this course, discover all you need to know to effectively plan, develop or use 5G in your applications. Understand the important concepts and requirements set forth by the 5G.

What You Will Learn

Participants will learn about 5G technology defined by 3GPP. With coverage of use cases, architecture, interfaces, protocols including business cases for Enhanced Mobile broadband (eMBB), Ultra-reliable low latency Communications and Massive IoT.

The goal of this practical course is to give the participant a strong and intuitive understanding of what 5G including 5G NR, 5G Core (5GC), Cloud RAN, MEC, slicing, Service Based Architecture (SBA), HTTP2/JSON, REST API, security, QoS, charging and policy.

5G is the 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.
