This is the first course in our series of 5G lab based courses.

In this training program we will demonstrate the overall structure of our 5G lab.

In this course we will learn Following Topics

1. 5G Basic Introduction,

2. 5G Core architecture,

3. 5G Architecture Framework

4. 5G Service Based Architecture and Signaling with detailed description of AMF (Access Mobility Function), SMF (Session Management Function), UPF (User Plane Function), PCF (Policy Control Function), UDR (Unified Data repository), AUSF (Authentication Server Function), UDM (Unified Data Management), AF (Application Function), NEF, NRF, NSSF (Network Slice Selection Function). All the parameters explained with lab demonstration as well. We have also described the features which are new in 5G technology like NEF (Network Exposure Function), NRF (Network repository Function)
