5G Radio Access Network

We also have 5G Radio Access Network (On-Demand).

2 Days / 4 Live Online Sessions (0900-1230) / Technical Level: Level 3

Course Code: FG2001

Course Summary

The 5G Radio Access Network course begins by discussing the key features of a 5G network before delving into the finer detail of the 5G New Radio.  The 5G RAN is described in terms of network architecture, base station characteristics, spectrum usage and multiple antenna configurations.  The transport of signalling and traffic over the 5G RAN interfaces, fronthaul and backhaul are analysed followed by an in depth study of the signalling protocols used over those interfaces.

Who Would Benefit

Engineers that need to know about the 5G Radio Access Network in terms of its characteristics, architecture, interfaces and operation


Ideally attendees will have a mobile telecommunications or radio background gained from the study of or working with GSM, UMTS or LTE networks.

Topic Areas Include

  • Introduction to 5G

Optional 5G Virtual Lab Module

Explore, Test, Optimise, and Troubleshoot the 5G System5G Virtual Lab

Deep dive into the key signalling scenarios in the 5G system and analyse the output to build a deeper understanding that goes beyond the theoretical. The lab is a fully emulated 5G System environment that enables you to experiment with the configurations for Network Functions and build customized settings for signalling scenarios that helps you to develop greater insight into the operation of the 5G System. Lab modules can be added to any relevant 5G course.
