Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

While 4G wireless networks will continue to evolve and be deployed for some time to come, the researchers, hardware and software designers, defense and homeland security experts, public safety and law enforcement, spectrum regulators, and others are already hard at work defining the contours and understanding the implications of the next generation of wireless technologies.
This exciting course provides a comprehensive overview of the core 4G/5G technologies, emerging research areas that are supporting the technologies that will develop into the 5G wireless standards, and the existing and evolving government regulatory policies that are influencing both national and international acceptance of the next-generation standards. This course is taught by a 5G researcher actively involved in pushing the state-of-the-art and is continually updated to reflect the evolving technology landscape. You will go away from the course having acquired an appreciation of the major forces that are shaping the evolution of 4G wireless to 5G.


Customize It!

We can customize the content, duration, and tech level of this course at no additional cost to meet the varying needs of audiences such as business and technology planners and strategists, engineers, managers and executives, defense and homeland security personnel, spectrum regulators, and others trying to understand what 5G wireless is and what it means for their profession.
For those working in the defense and homeland security sectors, customization can potentially include the inclusion of restricted content, subject to the availability of suitable classroom facilities and an approval from the cognizant federal authority.
