5G was designed with Enterprise applications in mind, especially for machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity and to connect the Internet-of-Things (IOT).

The purpose of this workshop is to bring out the concepts of 5G and its architecture and how to engineer IOT end-to-end applications that optimise use of its characteristics. We will compare the differences with alternate wireless technologies such as WiFi, other Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) wireless technologies and even fixed networks.

We will spend about a third of the time talking about the real 5G and IOT business applications,  business use cases and building a Return-of-Investment case.

Come and get a clear, independent view of opportunities in 5G so that you can make the right strategic choices for your organisation and your teams. Conducted in Singapore, by Singaporean for a Singapore and ASEAN context.

The next instructor-led 5G IOT online course run starts 24 March 2021. Seats are limited. So, sign up by filling form below!

This class is held jointly with Dream Catcher Technologies.

Full course fee is S$2,600 + GST.

What You Will Learn

At the end of the course and completion of the project, the student should be able to:

  1. Understand the strengths and weaknesses of 5G and its use in IOT and other enterprise applications
  2. Understand the end-to-end IOT and 5G ecosystem of components, system and processes
  3. Consider consequences of your IoT device in another country
  4. Optimise the use of 5G and similar communication technologies to develop projects
  5. Build a solid business case to justify the IOT project in terms of Return-on-Investment (RoI) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and present the case to different stakeholders in their own organisations

Who Should Attend

Middle-level managers, business owners, product managers, project managers of integration projects and solution architects of non-telecom companies who are trying to understand how 5G networks will affect their projects and businesses and how the Internet of Things will integrate into 5G.

This seminar is for those who are involved in the design and manufacturing of 5G elements and IOT devices; application development companies; enterprise managers who want to do digital transformation of their in-house systems and processes; and similar.


Awareness of existing communication technologies, e.g. 3G, LTE.

Having potential applications or projects of Internet-of-Things (IOT) will be preferred.
