The five keys to 5G
5G will take a much larger role than previous generations and today’s networks and will require many technological innovations. We will talk about them below in five easy pieces:
Speeds and feeds:
Speeds of up to 20 Gbps will be achieved using a combination of innovations such as carrier aggregation (CA), massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO),and quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM). we will talk about meaning of each technologies in futur articles.
New Radio (NR):
5G NR is a true 5G native technology that is currently being standardized. 5G NR addresses the need for achieving all 5G promises
Network functions virtualization (NFV) enables the massive scale and rapid elasticity that MNOs will require in their 5G networks. Virtualization enables a virtual evolved packet core (vEPC), centralized radio access network (C-RAN), mobile edge computing (MEC), and network slicing.
Internet of Things (IoT):
IoT devices pose a diverse set of requirements and challenges for 5G networks. some of the iot solutions are NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT), LTE Category M1 (LTE-M), Long Range (LoRa) and Sigfox
MNOs are increasingly using unlicensed spectrum in the 2.4 and 5 Gigahertz (GHz)frequency bands. 5G networks will need to tap into the vast
amount of spectrum available in these unlicensed bands to offload traffic in heavily congested areas and provideconnectivity for billions of IoT devices.
