Nokia is launching professional level certifications to train and certify industry professionals on end-to-end 5G networks, from network access to application management.
The Nokia Bell Labs End-to-End 5G Networking Certification program is vendor-agnostic and provides a deeper knowledge of 5G networking with a focus on Access, Core and Transport domains.
It is designed for business and technology professionals as a follow-up to Nokia’s foundation-level 5G Associate Certification that was introduced in February.
By gaining a greater understanding of the concepts and frameworks of end-to-end 5G networking, companies will benefit from faster realization of 5G strategies and the competitive advantage of providing high-value 5G services.
The End-to-End 5G Networking course is now available from the Nokia website, along with the associate-level Foundational Certification. Additional professional level certifications and courses will follow later in 2020. Each course has approximately an 8-hour run time which can be completed at the learner’s own pace.
Nokia has a product and services portfolio that covers all 5G network elements, including radio, core, cloud and transport as well as management, automation and security.
This offers operators and enterprises across all vertical industries (manufacturing, public safety, transportation, energy, etc.) a simple and efficient step-wise upgrade to existing radio access, core and transport domains, helping customers identify a faster path to 5G.
Approximately 60% of Nokia’s 5G customers have selected more than just New Radio from its end-to-end portfolio.
In March 2020, Nokia announced it had declared more than 3,000 5G patent families as essential for 5G.
