This course provides an overview of 5G capabilities and evaluates the driving forces behind 5G efforts, timeline, key requirements, and pre-5G activities in the cellular infrastructure domain. Key topics include future roadmaps for key operators, guidelines on spectrum and regulatory initiatives, and academic research on millimeter waves, massive MIMO, and IoT.
This course will also review 5G NR coexistence with other wireless communication systems. Three primary use cases of 5G will also be reviewed with greater detail – enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-reliable and low latency communications (URLLC), and massive machine-type communication (mMTC). The course addresses the challenges inherent with tackling issues such as new frequency spectrum, wide band-width, MIMO, and Beam Steering. 5G NR non-standalone mode (NSA) and standalone mode (SA) will be reviewed to understand the future role of the 5G base station (gNB).
