5G Workshop

Duration: 4 Days

This intensive 4-day workshop focusses initially on the commercial aspects of 5G and the capabilities it brings to telcos, new and emerging players in the communications industry, as well as adjacent industries. It illustrates how the technology (New Radio, NG-RAN, and SBA – Service Based Architecture), enable and support the required flexibility, cost structures, diverse deployment scenarios, and new use cases – to support existing and new / emerging business models.

We explore, and make sense of, the next phase of connectivity and connected innovation, and the role 5G has in enabling the transition to a massively expanded set of business models and opportunities. Participants will build a much clearer picture of the steps they (and their teams) need to take within their own organisation to maximise the opportunities that 5G presents.

This workshop then provides a technical introduction to 5G, including the principles, design, and implementation of the 5G air interface, radio access network and core network, and the operation of the 5G system.


To gain maximum benefit, participants should have a relatively rounded background in telecommunications or adjacent industries (whether technical, commercial, or both).

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.
