How 5G Misinformation Spread

  • Mark provides his insight,“There are some fantastic 5G courses to gain new certifications such as; ‘Towards 5G: Research and Standardization’ and ‘Internet of Things in 5G’ led by training provider Another option is to do an MSc in ‘5G Advanced Communications’ which is a course offered by a number of Universities.”

    Already have experience?Telecoms engineers with past experience of implementing 3G/4G technologies and have the knowledge or new skills in 5G communications would be an advantage when it comes to landing a job on upcoming 5G projects.
    Strikes on Telecom Towers
    The New York Times article (last revised on April 11, 2020) reports more than thirty acts of vandalism and arson on cell towers and other telecommunication equipment have taken place in Britain this month. Worse still, there have been more than eighty incidents reported in which telecom technicians have been personally harassed while on the job.
    The Effect on Engineers
    As reported in The Guardian, it’s gotten to the point that technicians installing cable-based broadband, which has nothing to do with cell service, let alone 5G specifically, are also taking the heat. In an incredible turn of events, broadband personnel have begun publishing pleas on the anti-5G Facebook pages to be left in peace as they work.

    So for those telecoms engineers who are ready to support with 5G, what jobs are available right now?

    Mark concludes,“We are currently seeing demand for technical specialists such as; RF SON engineers, small cells engineers, SDN/NFV, cloud and IoT engineers and architects, orchestration engineers, 5G RF antenna researchers, and 5G algorithm experts.”

    “5G will also rely heavily on fibre so there will be on-going demand for fibre skilled engineers such as network engineers, architects, planners, service delivery managers, project managers and programme managers.
