Pending the release of complete 5G specification, it remains clear that, 5G is not
necessarily about radio; it's also about an era in which mobile networks can
help users to transform other industries.
On this momentum, as prime candidates to fulfill the use cases,
the 3GPP's RAN Workshop reached agreement on three broad use cases that 5G
Enhanced mobile broadband
Massive machine-type communications
In effect, ‘’Massive" communications, for example, indicates
the need to use higher-frequency spectrum, which in turn points to advanced
MIMO, advanced beam forming and beam tracking.
"low-latency" communications points to the need for a more
decentralized network architecture.
