5G Service Based Architecture and Core Network

We also have 5G Service Based Architecture and Core Network (On-Demand).

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

Course Code: FG1903

Core Network Functions are explored, including their overall purpose, their specific role within the SBA, and the features / services that they support. This is followed by a comprehensive survey of the 5G Core and SBA supporting protocols and technologies, as well as a thorough examination of the Service Based Interface (SBI) and Service APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). Example procedures then allow us to build a comprehensive picture of the relevant techniques and features, and to make sense of the way in which the SBA is consistent with, and supports, key 5G enabling principles - including virtualisation and network slicing. Finally, security on the SBI is explored, highlighting the new network functions and techniques that have been introduced with 5G to provide new security features (including the roaming scenario), and a more secure core network domain.

Who would benefit

This course is designed for those involved in the design, deployment and development of the 5G Service Based Architecture and the 5G Core.


This is a technical course, so experience or knowledge of the 5G system from a technical perspective would be an advantage.

Topic Areas Include

  • 5G Introduction and Deployment Options
  • The 5G Core Network Functions
  • 5G Core Supporting Protocols and Technologies
  • The Service Based Interface (SBI) and Service APIs Explained
  • Procedures
  • Deployment options
  • SBI Security

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.
