Foundations of 5G NR Air Interface

Over 100+ Slides and 8 hours of course materials!

This course provides a solid foundation on 5G New Radio (NR) technology as defined by 3GPP standards and specifications in Release 15. The content and flow are structured to introduce NR air interface with a focus on PHY, MAC, and RRC layer design principles and their impacts on performance and deployments. Assuming the audience’s familiarity with LTE the course starts directly with discussions on 5G requirements, system architecture, and protocol layers. Then physical layer structure and channels and signals are described. Resource allocation schemes, channel Sounding, MIMO features, and beam management are also explained. The course also presents the step by step process followed by a UE from downlink synchronization to uplink access and operation in the connected mode under power-saving and mobility procedures. Spectrum and multicarrier deployment and design features that are essential in early 5G implementation are also discussed.

5G NR Air Interface in-depth

350+ slides, over 20 hours of coursework

This course provides an in-depth description of 5G New Radio (NR) technology as defined by 3GPP standards and specification. The content and flow are structured to introduce NR air interface with a focus on technical design principles and their impacts on performance and deployments. Starting with a brief background on the 5G requirement, standardization landscape and roadmap and following a short review of LTE air interface, the course presents 5G RAN and Core, architecture and protocol structure. The discussion is then followed by a detailed description of the physical layer including time and frequency resource structure, channelization, scheduling, transmission protocols.

The course also presents the step by step process followed by a UE from downlink synchronization to uplink access and operation in connected mode under power saving, mobility and beam management. Given NR has the same technical foundation as LTE and is expected to co-deploy with LTE for many years the course also opportunistically makes comparisons with LTE system. The contents of this course are kept up to date with the evolution of standards and may be adjusted to best reflect the state of NR technology.

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.

5G NR Radio Planning Principles

100+ slides, over 4 hours of videos

This course provides technical insights into radio network planning principles for 5G systems deployments in the mid-band and mm-wave spectrum. While the primary focus is on 5G-New Radio (NR) cell coverage and capacity calculation and network design, various multi-RAT issues including Non- Standalone (NSA) deployment and NR dynamic sharing with LTE are also discussed. Assuming familiarity of the audience with 5G NR air interface the course starts with a brief review of essential 5G NR topics with focus on physical layer channels, spectrum and RF parameters as well as NG-RAN architectures and multi-carrier deployment options including dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS). The course then dives into the 5G RF design and planning process and calculations with a focus on system coverage and capacity objective. The concepts and detailed calculations of the downlink and uplink radio link budget are presented and used for 5G-NR coverage based planning. Capacity analysis is also addressed starting with demand projection and cell capacity estimation following by capacity based cell planning. Then using some examples the combined coverage and capacity based dimensioning process is presented and finally, some site selection and generic guidelines for RF planning tools are discussed.
