The fifth generation mobile network 5G is a set of emerging global telecommunications standards, generally using high-frequency spectrum, to offer network connectivity with reduced latency and greater speed and capacity relative to its predecessors. One example is emerging autonomous cars and intelligent transportation, to which small latency is essential. Imagine a world where cars will be able to communicate with passengers, surrounding pedestrians, other vehicles, bicycles, traffic lights, parking meters and other urban infrastructure. To meet 5G requirements, we need dramatically new network architectures and technologies, such as heterogeneous ultra-dense networks, massive multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO), and millimeter wave communications.
