No prior experience or knowledge on Telecom is required


Let's dive into the world of telecom networks, starting from square one. No need for tedious jargon about 2G, 3G, 4G, or 5G - we'll keep it simple and fun!Section 1. Telecom Network OverviewEvolution of telecom technologies from 2G to 5GStandards & Specifications by 3GPP & ITUTelecom Network ArchitectureWhat is Telecom MastDifferent Types of Masts/CellsDifferent Types of AntennasWhat is User EquipmentRadio Access NetworkTransport NetworkCore NetworkAs technology evolves, so does its incredible architecture. Witness the magic of fewer nodes required to do the same job, and the mind-bending capabilities of emerging tech.Section 2.

It's the subnetwork that connects with external data networks and other PLMNs, making sure users get access to all the services they need. Get ready to learn about the key nodes and their functions, and how this network is transforming into its virtual form.Section 6. Core Network4G Core Network Architecture & Nodes4G MME, SGW, PGW, HSS & PCRF5G Core Network Architecture & Nodes5G AMF, SMF, UPF, PCF, UDM, NWDAF, NSSAI & NRFTech's got its own quirky ways of letting users hop onto the network. Let's dive into the call flow for initial access and registration, where radio and core network components exchange a flurry of messages.Section 7.
