Acquire the principles and technologies of future 5G wireless communication systems. In the areas of system design, communication technology, optimization of LTE systems, RF systems and IoT platform, you will be introduced to methods and tools to create the basis for new products and to succeed in the market.
▶ Holistic concept: from system design over the basics of signal processing to the platform
▶ Optimization and machine learning in 5G LTE
▶ Practical planning game as part of an innovation workshop
▶ Graphical development environment for IoT platforms
Group of Participants
You are an engineer and/or manager with a technical degree in electrical engineering, manufacturing or mechanical engineering.
5G has the potential to support key industries such as healthcare, transportation, revolutionize infrastructure, media and production. This entails important tasks and big challenges: extremely low latency times of 1 millisecond, 100 times higher data rates than today's networks, 100 billion end devices worldwide and low power consumption. The Internet of Things and intelligent networking are important components of 5G. Methods and approaches of this technology open up many new opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises.
The course consists of six subject blocks (lectures with exercises) and a practical training as part of an innovation workshop. In this course, the participants independently develop an IoT system application based on a graphical user interface.
