The first two phases of 5G standards have been released, but the commercial deployment of 5G mobile networks is yet to start. Interest, investment, and declarations of initial trials in various parts of the world continue to increase in preparation for the full and final standard due out by 2020.
This course provides an overview of 5G capabilities and use-cases based on the current field trials. 5G is reviewed from the perspective of cellular operators, regulators, and academia. The course evaluates the driving forces behind 5G efforts, timeline, key requirements of 5G, and pre-5G activities in the cellular infrastructure domain. Key topics include future road-maps for key operators, guidelines on spectrum and regulatory initiatives, and academic research on millimeter waves, massive MIMO, and IoT. The course also debunks various myths of 5G and its deployment.
