Nokia 5G Packet Core Architecture

Course Overview

This hands-on instructor-led course explains the 5G end-to-end system architecture and its characteristics. It describes the design and components of a 5G system and includes architecture explanations of Nokia’s solution for deployment option 3x and option 2.

The role and functionality of the components in the Next Generation Core (NGC) are thoroughly examined. Procedures for access, mobility, and session management, together with the concepts relevant to network slicing, flow-based architecture of QoS, and 5G security are explained.

The course is accompanied by comprehensive hands-on lab exercises to reinforce the course learning objectives.
