The availability of licensed, unlicensed, and shared frequency spectrums as well as the capabilities of 5G and 4G networks enable the deployment of private networks for many verticals, including industrial automation, healthcare, etc. This training covers fully private networks and operator-supported hybrid private networks.

This course is intended for solution architects, planning, engineering, operations, and systems performance teams.

After completing this course, the learner will be able to:
■ List the drivers for deploying Non-Public Networks (NPN) a.k.a. Private Networks
■ List and describe private network enablers like spectrum, 5GC, Network Slicing
■ Sketch the network architecture for SNPN and PNI-NPN
■ Step through the life of a device using private networks
■ List deployment scenarios for private networks
