5G System Engineering

5G is the next enhancement in mobile communications. This course introduces 5G technology in terms of the current 3GPP roadmap and network deployment by 2020. In so doing, an end to end view of the 5G system is examined, including the new architecture requirements for 5G. In addition, key aspects of the new 5G air interface are also introduced. The course then takes a “day in the life” approach to the 5G handset, detailing typical activities such as Registration, Security, PDU Session Establishment, Mobility and Interworking.
