What in the world is the 5G protocol stack? Communication technologies are often discussed in terms of constructs called protocol stacks, which outline the distinct mechanisms working together to accomplish communication. 5G is no different! The 5G protocol stack is a complex monster – difficult to understand even for seasoned network engineers. Taking a step back to examine the good old Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model is an excellent way to further familiarize ourselves with protocol stacks as a concept and begin to understand the 5G protocol stack. Use this course to examine the OSI model and see how 5G fits into the picture. Then, use the OSI model to further appreciate some of the 5G protocol stack components and their purposes and operation. Upon completion of the course, you'll have a deeper understanding of the inner workings of the remarkable 5G protocol stack.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • discover the key concepts covered in this course
    review the OSI model, including its origins, history, and purpose
    compare and contrast the OSI model with the TCP/IP protocol stack
    describe how the OSI model is applied for wired communication
    describe how the OSI model was applied for wireless communication before the advent of 5G
    examine how the 5G protocol stack relates to the OSI model and how it extends its mechanisms of operation
  • compare the operation of the 5G protocol stack with its 4G counterpart
    describe the operation of the 5G protocol stack at the physical layers
    describe the operation of the 5G protocol stack within the four sublayers of its data link layer
    describe the operation of the 5G protocol stack upper layers for both the user plane and the control plane
    describe the operation of the 5G protocol stack at the application layer
    summarize the key concepts covered in this course
