Event Title

Enabling technologies for 5G: Small Cells, massiveMIMO, mmWave, Network Slicing and Beamforming

Session

Computer Science and Communication Engineering

Description

With 5G is expected to be the most promising and probably the most complex technology in the market that has raised the hopes of a number of industries, standards bodies and vertical markets. The full development and deployment of 5G will be possible only after the development of a number of wireless and wireline-based technologies that are crucial and can be considered to be the enablers of 5G. These enabling technologies are Small Cells, massiveMIMO, mmWave, Network Slicing and Beamforming.

These technologies will help 5G meet its requirements and expectation to integrate several old and new technologies, scenarios and use cases within an ecosystem with the sole purpose to enhance user experience by achieving shorter latency, more capacity and improved energy and frequency efficiency.

The focus of this paper is on these enabling technologies, methods and approaches used to address the needs and requirements of 5G and the challenges ahead that stakeholders will be faced with.
