The momentum around 5G is building as more and more operators and equipment makers conduct trials and demonstrate what many are calling the next-generation of wireless networks.
Although there is no official 5G standard yet, the industry is starting to rally around a list of capabilities that they expect will be necessary to make 5G a success. Those capabilities include a download speeds of 1 Gb/s or greater with a latency of one to three milliseconds. Not only will people be connected to each other but so will machines, automobiles, city infrastructure, public safety and more.
5G is not a reality yet, but it is clear that software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) will play a key role for service providers as they migrate from 4G to 5G and scale their networks quickly.
This 5G ebook, which is available for download today, looks at how the 5G standard is evolving as well as how network slicing will make many of the 5G use cases possible.
Key elements of the ebook include:
- How the 5G standard is being determined;
- Why spectrum, SDN and other building blocks are necessary to make 5G happen;
- How network slicing will enable many of the 5G use cases;
- Why 5G is necessary for the future of the Internet of Things;
- What types of 5G trials are happening now; and
- How 5G will require a radical new approach to network security.
