Business and technology news is being overwhelmed with stories about 5G. Some CEOs and analysts have called it the on-ramp to the 4th industrial revolution. You may be wondering -- what exactly is 5G and why is it getting so much attention? Or, you may want to know how you can use 5G technology to develop new products or services, make money, or improve the delivery of public services. You’ve come to the right course!
I’ve been in the telecommunications industry for over 30 years and have worked, in one capacity or another, for three of the largest US communications service providers. Much of that time has been spent in wireless networks. In my career, I have seen technology leap forward and evolve at a faster and faster pace but never with such vigor as 5G.
All that you hear about self-driving cars and self-driving trucks, autonomous drones, the Internet of Things, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality --- they all need a fast, reliable, high-capacity wireless network. That’s the promise and the potential of 5G. In this course, Understanding 5G, we’ll take a look at what 5G is, how we got here, and what it means to you as a consumer, a business owner or entrepreneur, a property owner or building manager, and as a citizen.
Join me, and let’s get started in understanding 5G wireless communications.
- Consumers interested in the next wave of wireless technology with higher bandwidth and faster speed.
- Small business owners that want mobility, faster throughput, and higher bandwidth.
- Software developers and entrepreneurs launching or deploying new-generation wireless applications.
- Investors looking for opportunities in new wireless technologies, services, and applications.
- Landlords, building managers, and cell site owners or lessees interested in new revenue opportunities from 5G.
- Municipal telecommunications and public service employees focused on improving communications infrastructure.
This course introduction will highlight topics and intended audience for material in "Understanding 5G".
Learn why 5G will transform how we live our lives and will usher in the fourth industrial revolution that promises advances in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Intelligent Robotic Process Automation.
5G offers many important business benefits. Learn about the eight currencies of 5G and what they mean to providing more bandwidth at faster speeds to many more connected devices.
What is real 5G? Beyond the marketing hype,there are key characteristics of 5G that define this new wireless technology and lay the ground work for significant impacts to how we work, live, and play.
Dive deeper into what makes 5G more robust -- the core network. Improvements in bandwidth, capacity, and latency are just the beginning. With a high-powered, well-engineered core network and a Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) cloud architecture, new 5G services and products will come to life in ways unimagined.
The desire to be "unwired" for voice and data is probably as old as the invention of the telephone. Learn how wireless communication networks advanced from 0G to 5G over the span of nearly 150 years. Each succeeding generation provided exponentially more capabilities and features at lower prices in smaller form.
Learn about 5G systems that are being deployed in the US and in many other countries, but not without some controversy. In most industrial nations, 5G is seen as a key enabler for many new technologies and services. Every nation wants to be one among the first to provide wide-scale commercial service.
