Course Objectives

With the dawn of the 5G era, new use cases for the technology are emerging as consumers and enterprises set to work on identifying processes and channels that will increase productivity and efficiency.

This course aims to provide a fundamental understanding of 5G technology, how it will impact and transform various industry verticals, and new business use cases.
