This course will focus on technical, business and regulatory aspects of Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI). It will cover Internet technologies for IoT, then IoT standards, architectures and interoperability, as well as IoT policies and regulations, including IoT security and privacy issues. The course will include IoT services in 4G and 5G mobile systems, including massive IoT and critical IoT use cases. The IoT generates large amounts of data that cannot be processed by traditional techniques, and such data is referred to as Big Data.
In 5G non-standalone, emphasis is on a gradual roadmap from 4G to 5G mobile network. This course focuses on path migration of 2G, 3G to 5G mobile networks, considering timelines and technology used in each generation of mobile communication. The full description of the mobile networks as listed on the course title may not be covered in detail.
The SMTP is designed for individuals within ICT and telecommunications sectors who wish to enhance their knowledge and competence in the area of spectrum management. This includes engineers and managers working in telecommunications regulatory authorities, ICT service providers and other ICT stakeholders. This module will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of theories, tools and practices involved in spectrum management strategic planning and policy developments that are aligned with forward-looking analytical spectrum management approaches enabling wireless innovation.
This course is designed to develop IT professional's knowledge and skills to scope, initiate, deliver and close a fiber optic project, in time, on budget, and to the highest quality specifications. Some of the topics to be discussed include tools and techniques for planning, design and implementing. FTTH, Campus, Backbone and Submarine Systems and other systems. The skill set garnered in this training will no doubt provide an impetus for a robust and resilient fiber network performance and higher skills.
The course explains the foundational concepts and components for e-governance interaction in information society. It starts with an introduction to what information society is and how it has established the environment for e-governance development and digital transformation in the public sector. Then, the main building blocks of e-governance, their aims, initiatives, and enablers are introduced, and how they are related to external subjects and domains.
The Conformance and Interoperability training courses have proven to enhance capacity of participants from Member States in Africa to effectively test conformance and interoperability of equipment used in networks and digital infrastructure and to establish labs for testing including establishing policy and regulatory frameworks.
National cyber crisis management course is the introductory two-day, scenario-based, purpose-built training designed to take students to the intermediate level. The course will include both theoretical and practical components that cover a wide range of topics related to national cyber crisis management. Students will explore the main concepts of cyber crisis management, understand the key roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders involved in national cybersecurity crisis management, including the role CERTs.
4G has been a driver to transform the world into a single global telecommunication industry with lots of improvements in connectivity, security and data management. As the demand got higher for speed, ultralow latency and massive number of device connections, a new generation technology was required to meet all the demands. The key features and importance of 5G New Radio (NR) system is set in International Mobile Telecommunication-2020 (IMT-2020) Standards, recommended by International Telecommunication Union-Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) in 2015.
This course is designed to encompass the theory, the technology and field engineering aspects of fiber optic planning design and deployment by adopting new developments in the industry.
