5G & IoT Emulation
5G and IoT Emulation for Education and Training
As telecommunication technology innovates at a nearly exponential rate, technologies such as 5G and IoT have become the key drivers of connectivity for users globally. According to GSMA Intelligence Forecasts, "total IoT connections will double between 2019 and 2025, reaching 24 billion", impacting an array of industries beyond consumer electronics.
As this blog has often discussed the Internet of Things and 5G are transforming both the business world and private lives of the population. Innovative technologies appear regularly, creating new jobs. Information and communication technologies are creating jobs at a significant level, but unfortunately, there are struggles to fill the roles with qualified professionals.
Many educational institutions have seen this shift and are including courses on IoT and other technologies as part of their curriculum. A quick Google search reveals many online courses and some at the institutions. But, it is still a small list and the opportunity exists for educational institutions to include this type of technology.
For existing information and technology companies, who have long-tenured employees with dated technological experience, the need has arisen to bring these experts up to speed with emerging technologies or face a shortage of resources.
Training or formal courses are only the beginning. To provide students or employees with a comprehensive education, the curriculum must also include hands-on work with the current technologies driving IoT, such as 5G, 4G LTE and 3G. Without hands-on experience, the students or employees will learn concepts they likely will quickly forget.
In response to this critical need, Valid8.com has the tools needed for an institution or corporation to create and execute a complete training and education curriculum. Valid8.com's industry leading network emulation coupled with conformance, performance, load and security testing technology enables institutions to provide hands-on experience in areas such as:
