The Nokia Bell Labs End-to-End 5G Networking Certification program, launched today (opens in new tab), is a vendor-agnostic qualification that provides a deeper knowledge of 5G networking with a focus on Access, Core and Transport domains.
The program follows Nokia’s foundation-level 5G Associate Certification, which was introduced in February, and will enable a better understanding of end-to-end 5G networking, enabling companies to streamline 5G strategies, and, according to Nokia, gain a “competitive advantage” for operators looking to deliver high-value 5G services.
“The future of work is about workers in every industry being augmented with the knowledge that is most relevant to them for every task, at every point in time,” explained Marcus Weldon, Nokia CTO and president of Nokia Bell Labs. “A key enabler of that future is 5G networking technologies that will form the digital fabric of this future. Gaining knowledge of how end-to-end 5G networks will impact every possible aspect of our connected world is essential to select the right strategy for your business.
“So, whether you work in a communications service provider or an enterprise or an industry vertical that is on the leading edge of digitization, I encourage you to take advantage of the 5G Networking Course and the new Professional level Program that is being made available now.”
NokiaEDU and Nokia Bell Labs
Nokia is currently the only vendor with a portfolio that covers all 5G network elements, including radio, core, cloud and transport, as well as management, automation and security. And approximately 60% of Nokia’s 5G customers have selected more than just 5G New Radio (NR) from its end-to-end portfolio.
“NokiaEDU and Nokia Bell Labs are working together to offer the next phase of our innovative end-to-end 5G certification program,” said Sergio Fasce, Vice President of NokiaEDU, the learning and development branch of Nokia. “The 5G Networking course is equally suitable for business leaders, technology professionals and University students providing detailed information to enable strategic decisions, while retaining the engaging format and practical use cases of the Foundation course.”
The End-to-End 5G Networking course is now available (opens in new tab) from the Nokia website, along with the associate-level Foundational Certification. Each course has approximately an 8-hour run time, which can be completed at the learner’s own pace.
