"Vendors and operators must clarify how 5G will offer new or additional monetisation opportunities, compared with LTE and, in particular, high-bitrate LTE-A services: IoT may be one of the key 5G opportunities."
The development of 5G standards will be shaped by three main use cases during Phase 1: enhanced mobile broadband, massive connections and ultra-reliable networks. However, this narrow focus may pull 5G development in diverging directions, which could result in the needs of emerging markets being ignored.
- provides a discussion of the use cases that will shape the development of 5G standards, and assesses the requirements for addressing these opportunities
- analyses the value of the current 5G technology trials and demonstrations
- examines which of the many participating organisations are driving the technology development and standards work for 5G.
5G Phase 1 use cases represent a narrow base of
services and omit key markets
