5G wireless technology is a highly active area of research and development. 5G will enable gigabit data rates, ubiquitous coverage, ultra-low latency, and massive connectivity for machine-to-machine (M2M), connected vehicles, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
To accomplish these ambitious goals, 5G developers need to overcome a number of challenges, such as:
These challenges span the traditional disciplines of baseband communications, RF systems, and hardware design. The multi-faceted nature of 5G research requires an integrated workflow consisting of:
