5G and a Connected World
Globally, mobile traffic has been approximately doubling each year during the last few years and the industry is now preparing for a staggering 1000x increase. This course will cover the latest developments on the different aspects of the mobile broadband ecosystem and how wireless can address this capacity increase. It will cover a high level overview of 3GPP based technologies (HSPA+/advanced, LTE/advanced, and OFDM-based 5G platform currently planned for 3GPP release 15), 3G/4G industry forecasts, Internet of Everything, frequency bands and spectrum licensing innovations. The course is also intended to offer information and tools applicable for national broadband plans, including how the mobile broadband platform is playing an increasingly important role other sectors healthcare, education, energy, automotive and smart cities initiatives. Participants are encouraged to look up ahead of time technical information and white papers available on our website (www.qualcomm.com/invention/research/resources).
Overview of 3GPP & 3GPP2 based mobile broadband technologies and standards roadmap, heterogeneous networks, 3G/4G market and industry update, Wi-Fi evolution, foundations of unified 5G platform, chipset and application processors roadmap;
Developments on m-Health, m-Education, smartgrid, telematics, smart cities and developments in the automotive space;
Overview of mobile broadband spectrum(licensed and unlicensed), regulatory and policy developments, including ITU-R, WRC-15, ITU-D, , and Supplemental Downlink (SDL);
Wireless Reach (www.wirelessreach.com) case studies on the impact mobile broadband education, health, environmental, entrepreneurship, public safety fields in both developing and developed countries.
Designed for technical managers in regulatory agencies, communications ministries, MNOs (mobile network operators), and/or fixed carriers who are faced with making decisions on terrestrial wireless issues, including spectrum allocation recommendations and how these impact technology deployment, planning, and expanding broadband connectivity in their countries. A basic understanding of 3G wireless networks and technologies such as CDMA, GSM and HSPA is required.
