Scope and learning outcomes

The course is divided into 6 modules with  associated learning outcomes: 

1. Introduction to IoT 

The aim of this first session is to give a thorough introduction to the Internet of Things. Notably, we will explore some history dating back to early telemetry solutions which evolved today to the notation of the Internet of Things. We will explain the differences between machine-to-machine (M2M), machine-type communications (MTC) and the Internet of Things (IoT). We will also discuss inherent feature differences between the consumer IoT and the strongly emerging industrial IoT which is mainly used for critical applications. Finally, we shall give a little glimpse into the future and try to understand what the IoT means in 2020 and 2030.

2. Standards and Regulation 

The focus of the second session is to discuss in great details the connectivity standards ecosystem, including 3GPP, ETSI, IEEE and IETF. We will explore in great details the pros and cons of connectivity solutions today, including the emerging Low Power Wide Area Networking (LPWAN) solutions such as Sigfox and Lora; and we will understand the role of 5G in that ecosystem. An important, and often overlooked aspect, is regulation which is also discussed here --- you will need to decide if we are fit for the machine age.

3. The 3GPP Connectivity Family  

Session three will be a technical deep-dive into available connectivity solutions within 3GPP. We will commence with a review on the capabilities of the Extended Coverage-GSM-IoT (EC-GSM-IoT), and then deal in details with the emerging NB-IoT and eMTC solutions. We will discuss pros and cons of each, and try to understand how each technology will be used over the coming years.

4. Data, Platforms and Privacy 

One of the main aspects of the IoT is the huge amount of data accumulated which yields large potentials in terms of insights and business. We will also describe platform capabilities, and the current platform ecosystem. The huge amount of data generated from different sources also poses threats to privacy which will be discussed in some details, along with emerging regulatory frameworks which one needs to watch out for.

5. Markets and Business Models

An important session, we will discuss here the true market opportunities and the projections thereof. We will dive into different business models, and differentiate between business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) markets for which we will discuss typical sales cycles, OPEX and CAPEX requirements. We shall also explore the evolving business models, and try to predict how the IoT market dynamics will look like in 2020.

6. Selected Case Studies

Finally, in this session, we will put all knowledge into practice and apply all to some selected case studies. We will discuss connectivity and data solutions for one B2C and for one B2B application, and test prior gained knowledge. The week will be concluded by a short test, which counts towards a certificate of becoming an “IoT 5G Wizard”.

Time Commitment 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.


"Mischa is an excellent presenter, his skill as an academic and business mindset with experience in implementing real world solutions gives him a unique position to teach and communicate the technology."

"The IoT in 5G Course is excellent. I just completed it. The use cases presented are very useful to give a practical demonstration of what is learned."

"Thank you. Very interesting. I am hoping for more courses from Mischa. I hope others with real IoT ideas can take advantage of the content from this course. I think we will have better IoT products and experience if folks take this course early on their business journey. "

“So far I have liked the course. The professor is extremely knowledgeable and his delivery of lecture is amazing! Also, contents are very informative indeed!”

    Excellent course!

    I started this course with very limited knowledge of IoT technology and the challenges that it faces. I was pleasantly surprised how good the course is for those who want to advance their knowledge of IoT. It was a great starting point for me, and the course does exactly what it says on the tin - I've learned all aspects of IoT technology, its underlying standards, applications, and what the future seems to hold for it. What was especially valuable for me is enumeration of used technologies, their advantages and limitations, and practical examples how these were innovatively used in real life scenarios. I can strongly recommend this course to anyone, who is interested in the subject.
