5G is making many headlines at the moment with promises of ever higher peak and average data rates, ultra-reliable and low latency communications along with support for massive machine type communications to enhance the Internet of Things. This talk will briefly review the evolution of mobile communications technologies before exploring what 5G really is, which radio spectrum bands will it use, why it’s dependent on 4G LTE and how it will be delivered to address existing, new and evolving use cases. Topics to be covered include; massive MIMO and radio access networks, optical fibre, microwave and millimetre wave transmission and evolving core network solutions. The talk will present new and innovative use cases and discuss the demands these place on telecommunications networks, use cases including enhanced mobile broadband, rural coverage, AR and VR along with connected and autonomous vehicles will all be reviewed.
