Training Focus
5G is driven both by the need for mobile operators to quench the growing, insatiable and unquestionable thirst for mobile data, and to support new use cases and services. Numerous institutional, academic, commercial and regulatory organizations continue to work towards the commercialization of 5G services but fundamental questions remain such as what can 5G really deliver, what will 5G networks look like, and how will this impact spectrum demand, authorization and usage?  There is also the question of technology evolution: To what extent have 5G enhancements contributed towards characteristics such as the air interface, massive MIMO and network slicing, or will it be 6G that really delivers against the original vision set out by proponents of 5G? ?

When it comes to the question of spectrum however, there are many different views about how growth in data traffic impacts upon demand for radio spectrum. It is also evident that below 6 GHz there is very little spectrum remaining that can be re-farmed for mobile services and much of the focus for new spectrum for future mobile (5G and 6G) services is concentrated above 6 GHz. New spectrum being proposed for 6G will be in the THz range which means the signal propagation will be limited but offers extremely wide bandwidths. How feasible is it to deliver mobile services at such high frequencies? Are there ways to use existing spectrum more efficiently, or are current mobile technologies such as LTE Advanced and 5G already very close to the limit of what is achievable?

Course Objectives
After completing the course, participants will have an understanding of how the evolution towards a 5G standard is leading the chase to identify new spectrum, which spectrum bands are under consideration for 5G and 6G, and whether 5G or possibly 6G might mark the end to the hunger of mobile operators for more spectrum.

Intended for
Those who need to better understand the spectrum implications of 5G technologies with an appreciation of new frequencies being proposed for 6G, whether from a regulatory, commercial or technical perspective.
