5G full steam ahead - Worldwide initiatives, technologies and roadmap

Published: November 2015
No. of Pages: 45

This report provides its readers with the state of the art regarding the 5G project:

  • An overview and summary of the main international 5G initiatives
  • The main criteria 5G should fulfill (eg. reduced latency, lower costs, adaptive network technology, ...) and for what reasons
  • Needed evolution of RAN and Core network
  • Spectral issues (beyond 6Ghz)

It then also draws a roadmap when, where and how 5G networks will be first deployed.
