As 5G continues to become more prevalent in numerous industries, it is important to understand the various aspects of 5G and how they work together. In this article, we bring up four key learning areas of 5G and guide you to the Qualcomm Academy 5G courses that cover each area.

  1. Network Slicing: Network slicing allows the division of a single physical network into multiple virtual networks, each tailored to specific requirements. Understanding how network slicing works and its potential applications is crucial in the 5G landscape. To dive deep into network slicing, we recommend our three-hour 5G NR Network Slicing Overview course, which covers an introduction to network slicing, slice operation in 5G, slice management, deployment considerations, and more.
  2. Edge Computing: With 5G, edge computing becomes more feasible, enabling data processing and storage closer to the end-user. Exploring the benefits, challenges, and use cases of edge computing in the context of 5G is an important area of study. If you’re looking to enhance your edge computing skills, check out our three-hour 5G NR Multi-Access Edge Computing course.
  3. Internet of Things (IoT): 5G is expected to revolutionize the IoT landscape by providing faster and more reliable connectivity. Learning about the integration of 5G with IoT devices, its impact on various industries, and the potential for new applications is important. At Qualcomm Academy, we offer an in-depth 5G NR for Industrial IoT Technical Training course, which covers use cases and applications for Industrial IoT, key 5G enablers and capabilities, deployment considerations, and much more.
  4. Massive MIMO: Massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) is a key technology in 5G that utilizes multiple antennas to enhance network capacity and efficiency. Understanding the principles, benefits, and challenges of Massive MIMO is essential for those interested in 5G. If you’re looking for a technical introduction of Massive MIMO, we recommend our 5G NR Technical Training course. For more advanced courses covering the subject, check out 5G NR Massive MIMO and Active Antenna Systems and our 5G NR Massive MIMO Log Analysis Workshop.

In addition to the topics above, we recommend looking into our comprehensive 5G Associate-Level Certification, which consists of a technical deep-dive into air interface operation, call processing, mmWave, massive MIMO, beamforming, and much more.
