Linux Foundation Announces A New 5G Professional Certification

The Linux Foundation - Fri, 06/28/2019 - 22:50

The world of technology is always changing and it moves fast. But today we’re undergoing one of the most significant technological shifts of the last 50 years.

SAN FRANCISCO, June 28, 2019The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, today announced enrollment is now open for a new Business Implications and Strategy for 5G Professional Certificate program. Offered through the edX, the trusted platform for learning, this program will teach business managers what 5G is, what are the tools driving its evolution and how to implement a network architecture modernization strategy that enables business-wide digital transformation.

The transition to 5G will require a massive modernization of business networks that includes open source software and standards. This program will put business professionals ahead of the curve on emerging technology and business trends, enabling them to anticipate the needs of their employers.

“Earning the edX Professional Certificate in 5G, IoT and Machine Learning will give candidates a critical perspective on how these new technologies will change the business landscape and position them to be thought leaders in their organizations.”

— Clyde Seepersad, General Manager, Training & Certification, The Linux Foundation

In this program comprised of two online, self-paced courses, Business Considerations for Modernizing Networks for 5G, IoT and AI (LFS110x) and Open Infrastructure to Support the 5G Transition (LFS111x), students can expect to learn to:

  • Discern between the hype and real opportunities of 5G technologies
  • Understand how 5G will impact your business
  • Discover which open source technologies and standards are driving innovation for 5G and the technologies it will enable, namely AI and IoT
  • Learn what use cases apply to your business for optimizing customer experience and hyper-personalization and for improving operational efficiency and scalability
  • Discuss the first steps you can take to build and execute a transition strategy that prepares your business for the 5G future.

“We are excited to strengthen our partnership with the Linux Foundation and offer a Professional Certificate program in Business Implications and Strategy for 5G,” said Anant Agarwal, edX CEO and MIT Professor. “At edX, we’re committed to providing learners with career-relevant education needed to succeed and advance in the most in-demand fields. 5G is a technology that is becoming increasingly critical across industries, and the Professional Certificate program delivers this critical knowledge in a flexible, affordable way.” 

Business Considerations for Modernizing Networks for 5G, IoT and AI (LFS110x) is designed to teach business managers what is 5G, what are the tools driving its evolution and how to implement a network architecture modernization strategy that enables business-wide digital transformation.

Open Infrastructure to Support the 5G Transition (LFS111x) provides an overview of why open source matters now more than ever in the wireless networking space and what technologies deserve your attention. Business managers will become knowledgeable about the open source infrastructure powering the future and how to leverage it for their business. 

Students may register for the professional certificate program for a price of $198. If courses are purchased individually, students may add a verified certificate for $99. Students can audit the courses for free for 14 weeks.
