International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Centre of Excellence (CoE) node at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, will conduct eLearning course on “Next Generation Mobile Broadband” from 20 November to 17 December 2018, within the framework of ITU Centre of Excellence Network for Europe, and it will be delivered through the ITU Academy:

Head/Coordinator of ITU Centre of Excellence at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies in Skopje is Prof. Dr. Toni Janevski (

This course will focus on Next Generation Mobile Broadband from technology, regulation and business aspects. It will cover mobile broadband technologies, including ITU’s IMT-2020 umbrella, mobile Internet architectures, 4G/4.5G mobile broadband including LTE/LTE-Advanced-Pro and their coexistence with 3.5G technologies, System Architecture Evolution (SAE) and Evolved Packet Core (EPC), IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), as well as ITU’s business and regulation aspects for mobile broadband. Further, the course will include next generation broadband WiFi access (IEEE 802.11ac/ad), WLAN hotspots, mobile broadband offload via WiFi, and their business and regulation aspects. Also, it will cover ITU’s work on next generation mobile broadband, including mobility in Next Generation Networks (NGN), IPv6 mobile broadband, 5G mobile core and Software Defined Networking (SDN), 5G cloud RAN, 5G distributed RAN, as well as spectrum management for 3G/4G/5G mobile broadband access. Finally, the course will incorporate next generation mobile broadband services, including QoS-enabled VoIP and IPTV over 4G/5G mobile broadband, massive Internet of Things, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Device-to-Device (D2D) services, mobile broadband Over-The-Top (OTT) data services, Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC), as well as QoS regulation guidelines for next generation mobile broadband.

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 Next Generation Mobile Broadband, including technologies, standardization, regulation and content. Other institutions and individuals that are dedicated in building their capacity related to Next Generation Mobile Broadband are also welcome to participate.
