5G NR Air Interface
5G_308d | On-Demand | 5G Access | 2
Course Duration: 2 days
This learning takes an in-depth look at the 5G New Radio (NR) Air Interface and key operations that enable a 5G Standalone (SA) network to support the 5G services.
Intended Audience
Design, Development, and Performance Engineers of Radio Network, Device, and Tools.
After completing this course, the student will be able to:
■ Describe the frame structure with numerology of the 5G NR air interface
■ List downlink and uplink signals and channels and describe their function
■ Identify key steps of network acquisition, random access, and connection setup
■ Explain how data is transferred in the downlink and the uplink
■ Step through the handover and idle/inactive mode operations
