Interplay Between Spectrum and Standards in 5G

Mon. March 12| 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM | 207B

To be commercially successful, 5G networks and devices will have to provide improved capabilities including supporting greater capacity, utilizing less power and being cost effective. Decreased latency, for some applications, is also critical. Since the 5G world will be a network of networks, it is critical that there be standards that enable the interconnection and interoperability of the different communications technologies supporting 5G communications. In addition, to support the vast amount of data that will be carried, there will be need to be increasing smart approaches to spectrum management to enable the complimentary networks to all meet the anticipated data-intensive demands of the 5G network.

This session will look at the ongoing and forthcoming standardization activities and how these refer to the various candidate bands that 5G services will be using as well as ways to ensure that spectrum management will support the use of complimentary networks to meet the anticipated capacity demands of 5G.
