Telecom service providers are deploying 5G Non-Standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) networks using various frequency spectrum to enable emerging use cases for higher throughput, lower latency, and massive capacity. This leadership session is part of a multi-part series that helps network leaders explore use of low, mid, and mmW spectrum for 5G, features of 5G RAN and core network and emerging trends of telco cloud, MEC, and network slicing. This enables leaders guide their teams for effective network planning, design, engineering, deployment, and monitoring.

This training is intended for leaders of network planning, engineering, and operations.

After completing this course, the learner will be able to:
■ Identify 5G SA and NSA network components and their connectivity
■ Articulate use of various frequency spectrum for 5G networks
■ Step through the 5G SA and NSA operations for end-to-end network view
■ Effectively communicate within organization and with partners
■ Guide and inspire your teams towards 5G strategy
■ Identify talent gaps and prioritize planning, engineering and operations tasks
■ Identify dependencies and impacts across organization
