5G Core Network Signaling and Operations Part 2: SBA and NFV in 5G
5G_218d | On-Demand | 5G Core | 2
Course Duration: 4 hours
This is the second course in a six-course set of self-paced courses encompassing 5G Core Network Signaling and Operations. Fundamental to the 5G Core network is virtualization of the core network functions and employment of a service-based architecture. In this course, you will learn how the functions of the 5G Core network are virtualized to run on shared, off-the-shelf cloud infrastructure equipment as well as the producer/consumer of services approach is used for inter-process communications.
Intended Audience
5G Core Network engineering, operations, and performance related job functions
After completing this course, the learner will be able to:
■ Explain the role of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) in 5G
■ Describe the Service-Based Architecture (SBA) for the 5G Core network
■ Explore the use of the HTTP/2 protocol for the service-based architecture
