5G NR Evolution Release 16+

Over 100 Slides and 8 Hours of Heavy Content. Only for those familiar with 5G NR in Rel.15

This course provides a technical overview of 5G New Radio (NR) evolution with a focus on Release 16 and a preview of upcoming features planned for Release 17. Assuming a family of the audience with 5G NR in release 15, we start directly with discussions on basic features in Release 16 providing enhancements to capabilities that are already supported in NR. For example how MIMO, power saving, or mobility are improved. In this part, we also cover enhanced URLLC and two-step RACH which while considered as enhancements to current capabilities are also essential elements needed by new verticals discussed in the following section. Remote and cross-link interference management feature which is important for wide-area and dynamic TDD deployments is also covered. 

The second part of this course describes features that provide new capabilities not offered in R15 including those enabling new verticals. Here we start with positioning followed by 5G relay functions or Integrated Access and Backhaul (IAB). We then discuss NR in the unlicensed and shared spectrum (NR-U) and enhanced V2X, which are super features with a substantial impact on air interface design. We will then discuss Industrial IoT which relies on some of the above capabilities as well as a few additional features.  In the end, a preview of upcoming features in release 17 are presented at a high level using the same approach as R16 starting with enhancement features followed by new features.

Recent Feedback

"The trainers for me were of significant value because they represent two things that I think are really critical. Number one is that both trainers with whom I have the most direct experience were very experienced in the market itself. They had commercial experience as entrepreneurs working for big companies as well as small companies very directly in the telecommunications industry. The second thing that’s really important for a trainer to be good is an understanding of pedagogy and the process of learning. They use that to present the material so that it lands and finds a home in the brains of the learners in multiple ways. The high-caliber trainers we dealt with had both the experience and pedagogical passion.”
