“Technical, business and regulatory
aspects of 5G networks”

24 – 31 August 2020

Course Description

This course will focus on technical, business and regulatory aspects of the 5G mobile networks. It include will 4G mobile technology transition toward the 5G, considering the access and core networks as well as end-user services. Mobile broadband Internet after 4G will continue with the next generation, 5G, so the course will cover also IPv6 and its impact on 5G mobile networks. Further, it will include M2M (Machine-to-Machine) and mobile Internet of Things (IoT) services are foreseen types in future 5G mobile environments, as well as mobile cloud computing implementations. Also, the course will include spectrum management for IMT (International Mobile Telecommunications) including the 5G considerations. The QoS in mobile networks going from 3G/4G mobile world toward the 5G will continue to be important, hence the course will also focus on QoS and QoE in next generation mobile environments. Finally, the course will focus on emerging services and applications in 5G mobile networks in different verticals, including technology, as well as their business and regulation aspects.

Target Population

This course is targeted at managers, engineers and employees from regulators, government organisations, telecommunication companies and academia, who are interested in understanding, implementation and regulation of technical, business and regulatory aspects of 5G network, including technologies, standardization, regulation and content. Other institutions and individuals that are dedicated in building their capacity related to technical, business and regulatory aspects of 5G network are also welcome to participate.

Expected Outcomes

At the end of the training, the participant should have gained an understanding
of the key aspects of:

  • Mobile broadband evolution

Prof. Toni Janevski

Toni Janevski, Ph.D., is a Full Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Skopje, Macedonia. He received his Dipl. Ing., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering all from Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, in 1996, 1999 and 2001, respectively. During 1996-1999 he has worked for the Macedonian mobile operator Mobimak (currently T-Mobile, Makedonski Telekom, Macedonia), contributing to the planning, dimensioning and implementation of the first mobile network in Macedonia. From 1999 he is with Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies in Skopje.

In 2001 he has conducted research in optical communications at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, New York. During 2005-2008 he was an elected member of the Commission of the Agency for Electronic Communications (AEC) of the Republic of Macedonia. During the periods 2008-2012 and 2012-2016 he was member of the Senate of the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje. In 2009 he has established Macedonian ITU (International Telecommunication Union) Centre of Excellence (CoE) as part of the Europe’s CoE network, and serves as its head/coordinator since than.

In 2012 he has won “Goce Delchev” award, the highest award for science in Macedonia (can be received once in a lifetime). Also, he received Best Scientists Award of the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje for 2013 (can be received once for a lifetime).

He is the author of the book titled “Traffic Analysis and Design of Wireless IP Networks”, which is published in 2003 by Artech House Inc, USA. In April 2014 has appeared his book titled “NGN Architectures, Protocols and Services”, published by John Wiley & Sons, UK. He is also author of the book “Internet Technologies for Fixed and Mobile Networks”, published in November 2015 by Artech House, USA. Further, in April 2019, he has published the book “QoS for Fixed and Mobile Ultra-Broadband”, John Wiley & Sons (Wiley – IEEE Press series), UK. He has published over 200 research papers and has led several research and applicative projects in the area of Internet technologies and mobile and wireless networks.

Also, he has tutored and coordinated many international courses in the ITU Academy, each year since 2009. He is a Senior Member of IEEE since 2005. He is currently a member from Europe region in the ITU’s GCBI (Group on Capacity Building Initiatives), in the term 2018-2022.

His interests include Internet Technologies, Mobile, Wireless and Multimedia Networks and Services, Quality of Service (QoS), Design and Modeling of Telecommunication Networks, Next Generation Networks, 5G and beyond Mobile Networks and Services, Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud Computing, and Future Networks.
