5G Will Include Millimetre Wave Radio, But Work is Needed to Decide Spectrum Scope for Further Study
April 16, 2015
The target date for implementing 5G was widely thought to be 2020, but it is becoming clear that this timeline might be ambitious.
The term '5G' is now well established – not just as the next generational step for the wireless industry after 4G, but also as an emerging vision of virtualised, software-defined, next-generation wireless networks that connect many more people, devices and things at even greater speeds and quality of connection, over much wider areas. The detailed implementation of this vision is as yet undefined, but details of what might be included are starting to emerge.
