Understanding the 5G protocol stack is an essential step in gaining a deeper knowledge of the 5G infrastructure and operation. Take a closer look at the 5G protocol stacks using this course to gain a more intimate understanding of their operation. Examine the layers of the 5G protocol stacks, identify the role of the more traditional Internet Protocol (IP) within this framework, and explore the definition and operation of specific layers of the 5G protocol stacks. You'll have an understanding of the fundamentals of protocol stacks as well as the 5G core network after completing this course.
