5G NR Training | 5G New Radio (NR) Training - Hands-on

5G NR Training, 5G New Radio (NR) Training is a 2-day technical course covering all aspects of 5G New Radio (NR) air interface, protocols, operations and procedures. 5G NR is still evolving and many service providers have announced their plans to roll out a true 5G network in a dozen markets in accordance with the 3GPP’s released 5G NR (new radio) guidelines. With 5G NR Training | 5G New Radio (NR) Training, participants will learn about the real 5G networks and 5G NR, not so-called “5G Evolution” networks which largely consist of the rebranding existing LTE technologies as many service providers have already adopted.
