This course is designed to introduce the concepts and possible deployments for the launch of 5G Wireless Networking by 2020 or before. The preparation for the launch of 5G has already begun and we need to understand how this technology will impact our exisiting networks and terminals and what new technologies and/or deployments will be required.

During this course we will discuss various potential requirements for 5G wireless environments, starting with the 10 pillars of 5G and drivers for the requirements for the technology.

We will investigate the 5G Internet, the use of and support for virtualisation, quality of service support, over-provisioning, demand vs capacity and the mobile cloud. Cognitive radio and the use TV white space will be discuss as will green flexible RF and the need for SON.


By the end of the course the delegate will understand:

  • The possible 5G Architectures
  • The use of Cognitive Radio
  • What is TV White Space
  • The Radio Design System
  • Security issues within 5G
  • Broadcast Broadband Architecture
  • The Wireless Spectrum Crunch
  • Dominant Small Cell HetNets

Target Audience

Engineers, Sales Staff, Support Staff and Managers involved in the planning, and maintenance of mobile and wireless technolobies and environments.
