Training Focus
5G is driven by the need for mobile operators to quench the growing, insatiable and unquestionable thirst for mobile data, and to support new use cases and services. Numerous institutional, academic, commercial and regulatory organizations are working towards the commercialization of 5G services but fundamental questions remain such as what is 5G, what will 5G look like, and how will this impact spectrum demand, authorization and usage? There is also the question of technology: Will 5G be a new technology (and air-interface) or will it be a system of different technologies, each playing to their own strengths?
When it comes to the question of spectrum however, there are many different views about how growth in data traffic impacts upon demand for radio spectrum. It is also evident that, below 6 GHz, there is very little spectrum remaining that can be re-farmed for mobile services and much of the focus for new spectrum for future mobile (5G) services is concentrated above 6 GHz. How feasible is it to deliver mobile services at such high frequencies? Are there ways to use existing spectrum more efficiently, or are technologies such as LTE Advanced already very close to the limit of what is achievable?

Course Objectives
After completing the course, participants will have an understanding how the evolution towards a 5G standard is leading the chase to identify new spectrum, which spectrum bands are under consideration, and whether 5G might mark the end to the hunger of mobile operators for more spectrum.

Intended for
those who need to better understand the spectrum implications of 5G technologies, whether from a regulatory, commercial or technical
perspective.

Training Focus
The Internet of Things (IoT) covers a huge range of use cases and applications and scales from single devices to massive systems with various elements connecting in real time. Wireless connectivity is an integral part of IoT. Depending on the application, factors such as range, data requirements, security, power requirements and battery life will dictate the choice of one or some form of combination of wireless technologies. Traditional cellular mobile networks based on 2G/3G/4G have almost ubiquitous coverage and high data rates but at cost of high power requirements at end user devices. Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) based on standards like LoRaWAN, Ultra Narrow Band (UNB) or NB-IoT, are expected to complement traditional connectivity solutions for long range communication. Short range technologies such as Bluetooth, BLE, ZigBee, WiFi or RFID will provide connectivity over short distances. And, of course, 5G presents another set of opportunities for IoT connectivity.
This course explores radio technologies for IoT applications; discusses the underlying concepts and the resulting advantages and limitations. An analysis of spectrum requirements and availability complements the training.

Course Objectives
After completing the training, participants will be familiar with most recent radio technologies available to power IoT applications. They will understand the differences between the technologies, and the benefits and compromises of each.

Training Focus
Professional users in public safety, PPDR, transportation, utilities and industry must rely on efficient radio systems to provide wireless communication for support of their daily operation. Implemented radio technology, network design and user requirements must be carefully matched against each other. A solid understanding of users’ requirements and the possibilities and limitations of technologies is therefore essential.
This course discusses issues which need to be considered when a radio system for critical communications shall be introduced or existing systems shall be replaced: Is it better to use services from an existing operator or to build and operate a dedicated network? Which deployment concept should be selected? How to define coverage and capacity? Which technology can provide the required services? These and other questions related to the design and introduction of RF networks for critical communications will be discussed. Starting with specific requirements, the course introduces services specific to critical communi-
cations, explains typical planning approaches and highlights possible implementation scenarios. A comparison of recent and upcoming radio technologies like TETRA, DMR, LTE as well as 5G for broadband applications completes the training.
