About this courseSkip About this course
In this course, you will learn about 5G deployment. The course is designed with a hands-on approach to help learners understand various important aspects of 5G relevant to 5G deployment, including 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) Virtualisation, network slicing, and Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) for disaggregated core.
The course will also explore 5G deployment challenges and private 5G deployment aspects in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) settings, including sectors such as mining and healthcare. The aim of this course is to equip learners with industry-specific advanced skills in 5G.
The course is designed by an academic team from Curtin University that has extensive teaching experience and a successful track record of development of various MOOC courses, including the Micromasters Program in Internet of Things (with over a quarter of a million learners) and the Professional Certificate Program in Software Defined Networking (SDN).
