ITU is defining 5G standards as part of IMT2020 with active input from industry groups like the NGMN alliance and 3GPP. This course offers an overview of target services and potential technologies of the network architecture in the upcoming 5G standards. Use case families defined by the NGMN alliance are discussed along with the ITU and 3GPP usage scenarios. Key performance goals defined by the ITU for the wireless network to meet requirements of target 5G services are specified. An overview of key components for a 5G wireless network is given. Fundamental technologies for a 5G network architecture such as New Radio (NR) and Next Generation Core are discussed. Radio and core technologies described in the course include Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), and network slicing.

A high-level technical overview to personnel involved in product management, marketing, planning, design, engineering, and operations.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Give examples of use case families identified by NGMN for 5G
• Specify 5G performance targets defined by the ITU
• Illustrate emerging 5G network architecture
• Explain how NFV and SDN can facilitate deployment of a wireless network
• Summarize benefits of MEC
• Describe how network slicing works
