Modelling and Characterizing Millimeter Wave Networks for 5G

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • In recent years, the unprecedented growth in the number of connected devices and the mobile data traffic with the ever-increasing demand for higher transmission speed, the conflict between increased capacity and spectrum shortage has become an issue of critical importance. An attempt to strike a balance between these two important issues, the wireless industries has initiated a road map for transition from 4G to 5G. It is reported that the number of connected devices is estimated to reach 50 billion by 2020, while mobile data traffic is expected to grow to 24.3 Exabyte per month by 2019. Sophisticated signal processing techniques along with new spectrum space for a 5G system are needed to mitigate the physical impairments and fully exploit the system capacity.
