Get ready for 5G

5G is the new generation of radio systems and network architecture. It is delivering extreme broadband, ultra-robust low-latency connectivity, and massive networking to support many different use cases and business models. For mobile operators, 5G is enabling a new level of network economy and a leap forward in network efficiency.

5G New Radio

5G is combining existing radio access technologies (RATs) from 400 MHz to 100 GHz in both licensed and unlicensed bands. It adds new RATs that are optimized for specific bands.

Massive MIMO enables Gbps peak rates in sub–6 GHz bands. It can effectively compensate for path loss in cmWave and mmWave bands using beamforming techniques, and increase peak data rate through multi-stream transmission. A flexible frame structure and multi-connectivity enable ultra-reliability and ultra-low latency.

5G architecture: A system of systems

5G is far more than just a new radio access technology. Its architecture will expand to multiple systems by providing a Next-Generation Core for multiple access technologies, services, and service providers. NFV and SDN technologies support this transition by allowing systems to use a high level of abstraction.

For 5G, transport is evolving from a static, linear connection to a programmable mesh that dynamically interconnects all mobile and cloud elements.

5G networks introduce the concept of network slices, which are virtual instances of an entire network. Each slice will be tailored for a specific use case to ensure that end-to-end performance meets customer expectations and service and application requirements.
