The Wireless 5G Future Vision 2020

Perspectives of Mobile Operators (5G: Data Rate and More)

Wednesday 11 June 2014

China, the world’s largest mobile market entered the 4G era at the end of 2013. 2020 is now widely considered to be the year of 5G Mobile with 5G becoming the hottest key word in the wireless industry. One common consensus is that next generation of wireless systems will face a 1000x traffic load increase that raises the questions:

  • How can we increase network capacity dramatically while keeping the total cost of ownership at a reasonable level?
  • What user needs must be met by 5G?
  • How will wireless technologies and mobile infrastructure be integrated?
  • Are there any particular needs from a mobile operator’s point of view?
  • How will mobile operators stay on the centre stage in the future?
  • What kind of technologies are they looking for?
  • What’s the likely roadmap towards next generation mobile network?

This talk will give insights into these questions and share China Mobile’s views as well as selected technology updates.
