Faster data speeds, improved latency, advanced AI integration, and revolutionary connectivity will be part of the next frontier of global wireless communications. ‘State of Mobile Network Evolution’ delves into the evolution of Full Duplex communication, from static to dynamic TDD, to innovations in Sub-Band Full Duplex. It explores enhancements to efficiency and spectral use, detailing design goals, challenges, and pivotal technology catalysts. The paper also highlights the 3GPP’s role in this evolution within 5G-Advanced and its journey toward 6G.
The paper further explores JCAS, evolving networks from ‘listen-and-talk’ to ‘see-and-feel,’ unlocking new services. It covers applications, positioning, design goals, challenges, and tech enablers. In addition, it covers intelligent surfaces that will enhance wireless channels via environment manipulation, addressing motivation for use, actual use cases, design, challenges, and tech catalysts.
Key topics covered in this latest 5G Americas white paper include:
- Overview of premier national and regional initiatives (US, Canada, China, Japan, Europe, Korea)
- Advances in the Evolution of Full Duplex Communication
- Joint Communications and Sensing (JCAS)
