Time Commitment 

5G-Courses.com are designed to fit the schedules of busy professionals. That’s why each course is self-paced and available online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


"The course is structured with a gradual approach, introducing the different generations of mobile communication technologies, then introducing the key technology sets, identifying the various independent product domains of these technologies, and then unveiling 5G technologies, products and active vendors and standards bodies."

 "The platform works without hitches, thus far; the videos are nicely made, the diagrams are very clearly presented, and the overall experience is a seamless one. I am going through the course at my own pace, while reading the recommended course book, which itself is very interesting, not verbose or bogged down by too many jargons, as one would have thought before taking it up. It’s actually a very fluent read and experience."

Trainer & President, PrimeLime

Emil Olbrich is currently President at PrimeLime, Trainer at 5G-Courses.com and also VP of Networks with Signals Research Group. Prior to this he was head of LTE research, development, test and evaluation for the Public Safety Communications Research Program where he deployed the first and most diverse Public Safety 700 MHz LTE test lab in the world with over 70 participating vendors and commercial carriers. He was responsible for the specifying, deploying and maintaining the entire ecosystem of LTE which included devices, air interface, transport, radio access network, evolved packet core, IP networking, IMS core and application servers. He also led the team efforts, which include standards work, test case development and test case execution.

Mr. Olbrich has over 20 years of experience in the field of wireless telecommunications. He has worked primarily in R&D at some of the largest telecommunication companies in the world – such as Motorola, Qualcomm and Ericsson. His scope of work includes deploying and operating LTE infrastructure (RAN, EPC and IMS) from numerous Tier 1 vendors; testing new LTE mobile devices from multiple suppliers; testing, deploying and operating some of the first commercial CDMA networks; serving as Lead Project engineer for the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics and as the Project Manager for the China Ministry of Information Industry 3G testing in China; and supporting the early development of HDR (EV-DO and EV-DO Rev A).

He has been a speaker at events such as the GSMA Mobile World Congress, LTE North America, 4G World, International Wireless Communications Expo and LTE World Summit. Mr. Olbrich has a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Southern Illinois University.
