The Cisco Service Provider 5G Technologies Foundations (SPMBL100) is an instructor-led or virtual instructor-led course introduces mobile network components, basic 5G concepts, and features of 5G technology including faster data speeds, higher device capacity, and improved user experience.
You will examine the mobile packet core solutions, 5G transport architecture, and Cisco automation and orchestration tools used in 5G networks.
You will also learn about the Cisco 5G Non-standalone (NSA) and the Cisco Ultra Cloud Core 5G standalone (SA) platform solutions, the Cisco 5G converged Software-Defined Networking (SDN) transport architecture, and Cisco edge computing solutions. You will study the Cisco Network Function Virtualization (NFVI) architecture, Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO), and Cisco Elastic Services Controller (ESC). You will learn how 5G is distributed with Telco Data Center (DC) with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI).
And finally, Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP), Cisco Crosswork and the Cisco 5G security architecture will also be presented.


This course will help you:
  • Use the higher data speeds of 5G to access data more quickly and accommodate every device with increased capacity
  • Learn how 5 G technology delivers lower latency, higher device capacity, and a more uniform user experience
