We also have 5G Air Interface (On-Demand).
Course Code: FG1714
This course is a detailed technical description of the air interface for the 5G New Radio. It covers the principles of millimetre wave and multiple antenna communications, the architecture and implementation of the air interface’s physical layer, the higher layer air interface protocols, and the signalling procedures for idle and active 5G devices.
The course is intended for engineers and other staff who are involved with equipment design, operation, optimization or monitoring on the 5G air interface.
An engineering background with some knowledge of general radio principles and digital radio systems is assumed. A basic understanding of 5G and experience of LTE radio systems would be desirable.
