Course Overview:

5G Wi-Fi Offload Training – Hands-on

For mobile service providers, Wi-Fi Offload is a useful technique for reducing the loading on the PS mobile network. Several implementation options exist and as such, this 5G Wi-Fi Offload Training course initially explores those options before focusing on Untrusted Wi-Fi Offload. Fundamental concepts will be explored, including Wi-Fi operation and Wi-Fi security, along with the operation of the network in support of the offload process.
