LTE to 5G Wireless: Course Recap, Discussion, and Course Evaluation

Course Overview

Coure in a Nutshell

Evolution of LTE to 5G Wireless, updated periodically, discusses the requirements envisioned for the 5th Generation (5G) Wireless Communications as well as the technical specifications  now being developed for 5G. For those intimately familiar with LTE, a shorter course with an abbreviated LTE overview replacing the first two sections of the course is available. A shorter, less technical version of this course aimed at a nontechnical audience is also offered.

Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

Planners, strategists, and others interested in a study of the factors shaping the evolution of 4G LTE to 5G wireless and the technologies being included in 5G.



Good knowledge of the current wireless technologies including at least a high-level understanding of the LTE/LTE-A standards.
