Nokia has partnered with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to launch a new training facility that will increase Australian industry knowledge and skills in 5G and other technologies.

Based in the new UTS Botany Tech Lab and Ultimo Data Lounge, the Nokia 5G Skills Accelerator at UTS will provide UTS students, academic staff, industry personnel and Nokia’s customers, business partners and employees with access to the very latest technologies, systems and training practices supporting the next generation of telecommunications.

Course focus areas will span technology domains including radio access, IP routing, optical and core networks, fixed broadband access, security and IoT platforms.

More than 1,000 industry personnel and academic students in fields such as Electrical Engineering and Electrical Engineering in Telecommunications are expected to attend the Nokia 5G Skills Accelerator at UTS in 2019.

The Nokia 5G Skills Accelerator at UTS builds on an MoU focused on developing Australia’s 5G and IoT capability through industrial collaboration and advanced engineering projects. Nokia is a member of the UTS Rapido program, which leverages the diverse expertise of more than 200 researchers at the university’s Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology (FEIT) for research in areas such as data analytics, cyber security, 5G and IoT.
