Introduction to 5G Network Engineering - Unit 7: Network Function Virtualization

In stock
Unit overview

An important part of the overall system is virtualisation and cloud techniques. This unit explores those concepts, highlighting the use of NFV (Network Function Virtualisation), and SDN (Software Defined Networking) – before bringing these together with the 5G architecture (and the capabilities that support a wide range of use-cases) through the concept of Networking Slicing.
