5G - Not just a faster 4G
Cellular systems are classified in generations, where the latest deployed system, LTE, is the fourth generation (4G). Research and development on 5G has been on-going from some time, in particular in the EU-project METIS. The three main services envisioned for 5G are extreme mobile broadband (xMBB), massive machine-type communication (mMTC), and ultra-reliable machine-type communication (uMTC). In this talk, we will discuss what these services are, the current state of 5G, and what the timeline for deployments is. Some remaining research challenges will be touched upon.
