Exploring 5G

In order for 5G to become the success it is anticipated to be, monetization of the technology is of paramount importance. This short course seeks to explore the commercial aspects of deploying 5G, from the initial design and roll-out of the network through to monetization as a result of initiatives such as Network Slicing, Multi Access Edge Computing (MEC) and Voice over New Radio (VoNR).
