5G New Radio Training – Course Recap and Discussion


Course Overview
5G New Radio Training


Course in a Nutshell

5G New Radio Training explores the radio technology involved in 5G RAN New Radio (NR), the physical layers procedures, and the principles of Massive MIMO and MIMO/Beamforming techniques. Since the OFDM concepts are vital to 5G, a detailed discussion of this technology is included as well.


Customize It!

We can tailor the 5G New Radio Training to include the LTE/LTE-A prerequisite material (if your team needs it), add or omit topics to suit your team’s needs, or to adapt it to a less technical, more business-oriented audience. The course can also be extended to include hands-on exercises.
