Welcome to 5G NR-Unlicensed (NR-U)
5G_120d | On-Demand | 5G Access | 1
Course Duration: 1 hour
In this training, you will explore the world of using unlicensed frequencies for 5G NR-based networks. The large amount of unlicensed spectrum at 6 GHz, mmWave, as well as 5 GHz, provides ample resources to deliver high data rates and low latency for 5G networks. This opens up many opportunities to bring 5G to enterprise customers for private 5G network deployment. The training covers both standalone and anchor mode NR-U network architecture, operations, and deployment considerations.
Intended Audience
