Today we’re undergoing one of the most significant technological shifts of the last 50 years. A variety of new technologies and market pressures are colliding to open up the future for business. The convergence of software and networks, cloud, containers, Internet of Things (IoT), Edge, AI and more require us to rethink how we make business and technology decisions.
2G brought digital cellular, 3G greater speeds and, of course, 4G gave us streaming video. 5G is here and will be the biggest leap yet. It means more data and faster speeds with the ability to connect more devices. These are the capabilities that will make the promises of Artificial Intelligence, IoT, and smart cities go from buzzword to reality.
This program will teach business managers what is 5G, what are the tools driving its evolution and how to implement a network architecture modernization strategy that enables business- wide digital transformation.
