Introduction to 5G Network Engineering - Unit 3: Drivers and Objectives of 5G New Radio

In stock
Unit overview

Although brought together using Dual Connectivity as part of the overall 5G system, the 5G New Radio (NR) is distinct in terms of its operation and capabilities compared to the 4G E-UTRA (LTE). In this unit we explore the drivers and objectives of NR, including its deployment within a massively increased set of spectrum options, including millimetre waves, and flexible duplexing.

What you will learn
At the end of this unit, you will be able to:

• Identify the main objectives and technology features of the 5G New Radio
• Discuss the three major ways to add capacity to a wireless/cellular network in terms of the radio – including the role that 5G plays in maximising those three dimensions
• List the initial 5G New Radio spectrum allocations, and discuss the merits and likely use of each band
• Compare and contrast the use of TDD and FDD for 5G New Radio – clearly stating how both duplexing techniques will be used with the various deployment scenarios for 5G NR
Who should learn
This course is intended for engineers and managers new to, or already working in, mobile communications with a focus on 5G. It would also appeal to those looking to gain a head-start on 5G for future projects, or to remain at the forefront of developments in the field of telecoms.
