  4. > 5G worldwide outlook: standardisation programmes and technology developments

Participants in the 5G market need to focus on the business case and models for implementing and monetising 5G technologies, not just the technology evolution/revolution.
Wireless networksThe high expectations for 5G (for example, 1ms latency, 1000 times more capacity than 4G, 1Gbps, more than 350km-per-hour mobility) can easily obscure real business requirements and opportunities in the mobile industry. Operators need to be realistic about demand in their markets, their 4G investment plans and service opportunities. Regulation will be needed regarding the use of higher-frequency spectrum (for example, in the 6–30GHz bands) some of which may be lightly licensed, or managed with shared access.

This Report provides:
analysis of the potential impacts of 5G standards on the industry
an overview of the implications for regulators, mobile network operators (MNOs) and technology companies, such as network and device manufacturers
an examination of the major drivers and use cases for 5G
detailed case studies of 5G initiatives worldwide
analysis of some of the technologies that we expect to be deployed.


The following companies and organisations are mentioned in this Report.
5G Forum
ARIB 2020 and Beyond AdHoc
Cisco Systems
Huawei Technologies
IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group
Nokia Networks
NTT Docomo
The Ministry of Science and Technology of the People's Republic of China's 863 Program

5G worldwide outlook: standardisation programmes and technology developments
6.Executive summary and key implications
7.Executive summary
8.Key implications for mobile network operators (MNOs)
9.Key implications for regulators
10.Key implications for technology companies
11.The impact of 5G on the telecoms industry
12.5G could be the most complex standardisation exercise that the telecoms industry has experienced
13.Some 5G spectrum options could enable hyper-dense networks and deliver gigabit-speed wireless data services
14.5G spectrum access is likely to become more diverse and more dynamic, which could lead to security and performance challenges
15.The development of new 5G radio access technologies would hinder backward compatibility
16.5G could bridge the divide between fixed and mobile network services
17.5G RandD is underway - established players are forming partnerships that may signal a new value chain
18.The vision for 5G and the status of standardisation programmes
19.Key to the 5G vision is that networks must be higher performing, and more virtualised and service-driven than today's networks
20.The top-four drivers for 5G are the same as those for 4G: growth in mobile and fixed data traffic, M2M device connections and smartphone take-up
21.The use cases for 5G are becoming increasingly understood, but basic questions are still being asked about what should be in the standard
22.Standardisation bodies and industry alliance associations have begun their 5G initiatives
23.ITU's Working Party 5 is co-ordinating the 5G standards effort, but major deliverables will not appear until mid-2015
24.Early 5G specifications are expected to be introduced in 2015 in 3GPP Release 14, followed by further releases
25.5G development efforts worldwide
26.Multiple stakeholders are influencing 5G development, including MNOs, governments, equipment vendors and research institutions
27.Asia-Pacific and the European Union are leading efforts to define and develop 5G, but input from the Americas and Australia is missing
28.The IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group and MOST's 863 Program are working together to propel China's leadership in 5G development
29.South Korea's 5G Forum aims to commercialise 5G by 2020 and offer 1Gbps per user anytime anywhere
30.Japan organises its 5G development activities through ARIB 2020 and Beyond AdHoc
31.METIS 2020 intends to ensure that the EU leads the development of 5G as it works to build worldwide consensus
32.5G PPP in Horizon 2020 is a 50:50 public-private partnership project that aims to position the EU at the forefront of 5G development
33.UK-based 5GIC is the world's first dedicated 5G centre, and aims to research and develop efficient 5G solutions
34.Proposed key technologies
35.The 5G vision will drive the need for a new radio access technology and possibly non-backward-compatible changes
36.Massive MIMO systems could help operators achieve the capacity, throughput and efficiency targets required for 5G networks
37.Information-centric networking can change how we think about mobile networking and vastly simplify the next-generation core
38.Macro-assisted small cells could help networks address density challenges without increasing signalling loads
39.Mesh 5G access networks could change how local data is handled by the wireless network and increase network scalability
40.SCMA is a new waveform and signalling technology to increase throughput and number of simultaneous users supported in the RAN
41.Dynamic TDD framing could achieve the 1ms latency goal while boosting throughput and network efficiency
42.5G radio development may create connections to deeper core network and cloud functions, driving high data rates and improved performance
43.UF-OFDM improves spectrum utilisation and efficiency for short-burst communications
