Introduction

As 4G evolves through LTE-Advanced and LTE-Pro to deliver enhanced performance for cellular networks, we consider what a new radio promises and examine the drivers for 5G. This workshop will assess vertical market needs, RAN slicing architectures, timing for standardization, 3GPP work items and new interfaces, including waveforms, channel coding and multiple access schemes. Consideration for the overall 5G radio access network design and technical enablers needed for an efficient integration and use of the various 5G technologies and components currently being developed. Exploring 5G collaboration frameworks and evaluation of 5G radio access network concepts, regulatory challenges and standardization.

Workshop Goals

  • Which frequency bands will be considered for global scale and roaming?
  • How will future bandwidth requirements evolve?
  • How do new waveforms, channel coding and multiple access schemes perform?
  • What will be required of Backhaul, Fronthaul and "Midhaul" to support 5G?
  • How will SON Evolve and network automation be implemented?
  • How will massive machine connection demands impact or compliment 5G?
