Nokia has introduced two new professional level 5G certifications. These ‘Industrial Automation Networks’ and ‘Distributed Cloud Networks’ certifications are part of Nokia’s program to train and certify industry professionals on 5G technology, from network access to application management.
Since their launch last year, registrations for the first two courses in Nokia’s 5G learning program totaled more than 22,000 globally across many industries. Building on this successful foundation, the new certifications highlight the potential of 5G to revolutionize industries – from manufacturing to transportation, to healthcare, and more.
The Nokia 5G Readiness Report found that by 2030, 5G will deliver $8 trillion in value globally to businesses, economies and societies. Together, the ‘Distributed Cloud Networks’ and ‘Industrial Automation Networks’ trainings would reveal how 5G can improve industry performance. Its “enhanced speed and ultra-reliable low latency” would produce tangible increases in safety, productivity and efficiency.
5G Certification Program
As with the rest of the courses in its 5G Certification Program, Nokia would use compelling, real-life examples of how 5G enables Industrial Automation, such as Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) in a manufacturing environment. Building on this example, the ‘Distributed Cloud Networks’ course would demonstrate the power of cloud computing at the edge, essential for managing the real-time pinpoint movement of AMRs through a confined manufacturing space.
“Over the next five years, 71% of companies will invest in 5G technology – with the potential to add $8 trillion in value to businesses, economies and societies globally by 2030,” said Sergio Fasce, Vice President of People Services, the learning and development branch of Nokia. “The 5G Certification program gives business leaders and technology professionals a competitive advantage, helping them to plan and adapt their business processes to take advantage of Industry 4.0 and turn much-discussed concepts of smart cities, autonomous vehicles, virtual learning and remote healthcare into impactful realities.”
