Introduction to 5G

According to analysts, businesses should view 5G technology as a means to Transend the possibilities of today, and representing a new way of working and thinking.

5G technology has the capacity to power organizations in exciting and profitable directions. Some of the things 5G can do for organizations include:

  • Assuring real-time control of every business process
  • Making sure all operations have been automated
  • Run any process remotely
  • Provide a higher security level without compromising performance
  • Run applications on the edge where relevant
  • Use compute resources when necessary

5G is also being viewed as the catalyst for enterprise transformation. Truth is, the benefits of 5G for businesses are much different from the benefits of 5G for consumers. For the enterprise, 5G offers  incredible promise.

You can think of the implementation of 5G technology as an “evolutionary step” for your business.

5G isn’t just about faster speeds – it’s about faster and more profitable business. That’s why it’s crucial that every organization, regardless of size, comes to terms with understanding the opportunities that 5G presents.

This is particularly important as standalone 5G takes the 4G handoff and creative entrepreneurs begin developing innovative ways to use “pure” 5G for business and leverage its capabilities.

The benefits of 5G are innumerable and not always blatantly apparent. For example, take productivity. 5G technology not only has the potential to create whole new ways to work, but it may even make evolving your small business easier.

With 5G, devices can gain powerful, low-latency connections to the cloud, so the devices themselves may not have to do as much computing. This would make it possible to use devices that are essentially a screen and a battery with a high-bandwidth connection to the cloud.

Your business could also equip employees with low-power devices running powerful analytics to deliver premium services or use augmented reality to streamline warehouse management and operations.

5G can also make sales channels more productive. Giving your salespeople a higher-bandwidth connection to the office and to customers will enhance their ability to sell. They might use augmented or virtual reality to provide more immersive experiences for customers.

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.
