Familiarity with 5G network architecture is imperative for anyone involved with this groundbreaking technology, even non-technical administrators, partners, and participants. This course approaches 5G network architecture and design concepts from a high level – an easy way for all interested parties to understand the working mechanisms of 5G networks. Topics in this course include a review of cellular mobile communication networks, their components, and architecture, in addition to a deep dive into the technologies that empower 5G's revolutionary potential. You'll also examine how 5G is expected to coexist with 4G during an initial transition period and review some more theoretical concepts involving what are known as protocol stacks. At the end of this course, you should have a solid recognition of how 5G mobile networks and network communication in general work.
