Soon after the emergence of the 4G network, the representatives of the industry have been looking upon new technological developments towards the succeeding generation (5G). The technological foundations of the 5G have been recently launched by key international mobile operators, academic institutions and infrastructures manufacturers. In spite of all these innovations, the idea of 5G has not been crystal clear.
5G is anticipated to incorporate the concept of multiple tiers in multiple ways, after the sequence from 2G to 3G to 4G-LTE, a defining focus of every new generation has been to supply higher speeds to handsets but the emerging needs are more complex. We’re now within the early stages of the prosperous explosion of the web of things. A number of the “things” represent a tier of devices that crave higher speeds. While others require long battery life and low costs quite high speeds.
Working on LTE standards is already defining technology for this new tier of devices, designated as category-1 and category-0 devices. Under these assumptions, 5G will expand with further support for multiple tiers of devices, massive numbers of cheap low power devices, also as devices operating at ever higher speeds.
Backing for these higher speeds and capacities results in another sort of tiring within the specification. Heterogeneous networks known as HetNets, harmoniously combine conventional outdoor cell towers with the newer concept of Small Cells, located on buildings or maybe light poles.
