As a revolutionary technology in the communication development history, 5G will make the Internet of Everything (IoE) become possible, which means that people and people, people and things, and things and things can be connected anytime and anywhere. The lives of everyone will be deeply influenced. Year 2017 to 2018 will be an important transitional stage in the 5G development history, during which the 5G technology will advance to network practice from a technical standard, laying the foundations for subsequent commercial applications. However, there are many indefinite challenges, which may be short-term, long-term, local, or global, in the process of 5G development. The 5G commercialization process can be enhanced only through promoting harmonization of standards, strengthening technological innovation, and promoting cross-industry cooperation.
5G goes beyond traditional cellular services for personal use. A large chunk of traffic will come from human-to-machine and machine-to-machine communication. The internet-of-things (IoT) requires new services, standards and innovations.
Since the beginning of commercial 4G launch, imaginations have run wild in the industry about next-generation mobile communications technology. The future technology can provide super-fast peak data rates, support massive connections, have a very short latency, and use frequency bands above 6 GHz.
Over the past few decades, wireless communications have advanced tremendously and have become an indispensable part of our lives. Wireless networks have become more and more pervasive in order to guarantee global digital connectivity.
With the development of wireless communications, a consensus has been reached that the future 5G system should be a unified network adaptable to different scenarios.
In this paper, a new type of multi-carrier technology—filter bank- orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (FB-OFDM) technology, which is suitable for 5G, is proposed.
China is now in the 3G and 4G and will be in the 5G era by 2020. 5G implies the interconnection of everything in a digital world, which includes man-to-man, man-to-machine, and machine-to-machine communications.
In this paper, three technical development challenges faced by 5G are proposed, including enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra reliable and low latency communication (URLLC), massive MTC (mMTC).
ZTE carries out in-depth cooperation with global operators in terms of customer demand, scenario study, new business applications, network innovation, and does its best to create the most suitable solution.
Presently, ZTE has signed strategic cooperation protocol with several operators,, including China Mobile, China Unicom, China Telecom, DT, SoftBank, KT, Telefonica, U Mobile, ROHDE & SCHWARZ, Cobham.
