5G Enhancements in 3GPP R17
TPR1061x | Expert-Led Live | 5G Access | 2
Course Duration: 4 hours
5G Release 17 features augment the existing 5G R15 and R16 features to achieve improved system performance and address new verticals and deployment scenarios. This training explores 5G R17 enhancements as well as new features for devices, radio networks, and core networks of 5G. Improved coverage, enhanced mobility performance, extended device battery life, support for Reduced Capability (RedCap) devices, and Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN) are among the notable improvements.
