Evolution of 5G Technology

5G will provide services across a wide swath of disruptive technologies. Improvements in performance over LTE will be essential to the future use of many of these emerging application. Today more than half of executives at large mobile network operators believe there are no any compelling near- term business cases for 5G. 5G promises a step change in network performance for those operators that are ready to invest in it. 4G network do not enable the range of services that the future requires. 5G will be faster and more flexible. It’s change the way of Social Media.

American President Donald J. Trump tweet:

“I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible. It is far more powerful,faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind. There is no reason that we should be lagging behind on …..”



The Evolution

5G evolution in mobile
5G evolution in Mobile phones devices
  • 1G –> 1991—> Analog network with voice, AMPS,TACS
  • 2G –>1991 –> Analog to digital transition, introduced data services such as text messaging and more secure, GSM, EDGE, data up to 3Mbp/s
  • 3G –> 2001 —> More spectrum allowed basic access to more than just voice and text services such as e-mail, UMTS/HSPA, data up to 2Mbp/s
  • 2010 —> Merged cellular and IP technologies, LTE, data up to 50M p/s
  • 5G —> 2020—> A fundamental shift in the way we construct and manage mobile network infrastructure. Enables mass connectivity of devices and applications, 1000 time faster than 4G network, Amazing Connectivity, Fibre like experience

Building the Foundation for 5G

  • 5G is all about high-band spectrum, which Sprint has commercially deployed
  • 2.5 GHZ spectrum is considered the low-band spectrum for 5G
  • Street furniture such as poles not towers
  • Signal from both side of wall
  • Network Function Virtualization
  • Software Defined Networking

5G Network Slicing

5G Technology Cost Impact

An Illustration : Capex Stress from

  • Massive cell densifications
  • Smaller & Smallest cell connectivity.
  • Operators likely Backbone modernization / uplift.
  • Core,IT & Platforms more likely to be within spend profile ( on average ).
  • Depends on complexity ,e.g., slicing…

An Illustration : Opex Pressure from

  • Overall poor economical scalability of small, smaller & smaller cells.
  • Open impact will depend on level of fixed -mobile integration & the technology modernization level.
  • Dependency of level of automation & degree of zero – touch network state.

The Landscape of 5G




5G will differentiate itself by delivering various improvements

  • 10X : Decrease in latency = Delivering latency as low as 1 ms.
  • 10X : Connection density = Enabling more efficient signaling for lot connectivity.
  • 10X : Experienced throughput = Bringing more uniform , multi-Gbps peak rates.
  • 3X : Spectrum efficiency = Achieving even more bits per Hz with advanced antenna technique.
  • 100X : Traffic capacity = Driving network hyper-densification with more small cells everywhere.
  • 100X : Network efficiency = Optimizing network energy consumption with more efficient processing.
