The 5G transition is well underway, with the technology rolled out on every continent, and adoption growing daily. This is leading to advances in other technologies – most especially edge computing, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. Many don’t realize that open source software is at the heart of the 5G revolution, making it possible in the first place and helping to speed implementation thanks to shared R&D efforts and greater interoperability than prior wireless standards.
Considering the accelerating rate of change in the networking and telecommunications industry, it can be difficult to stay up to speed on these and the other latest technologies. Managers and their technical partners will be the ones to build the next great innovations based on the capabilities of 5G – but in order to do so, they require a fundamental understanding of the market pressures and a basic understanding of the technologies driving this shift – technologies like edge computing, IoT and AI.
That’s why The Linux Foundation offers two online training courses exploring these topics free of charge. Business Considerations for 5G, IoT, and AI is designed to help you discern between the hype and real opportunities of 5G technologies. Open Source and the 5G Transition explains the open source infrastructure powering the future and how to leverage it for business benefit.
These courses are only two hours long, and no technical expertise is required. They are designed for anyone from business professionals to engineers who want to improve their understanding of these technologies and the changes they bring. Register for free today and increase your knowledge!
