Introduction

Cellular networks have evolved through several generations with each successive generation offering significant improvements over the other.  The telecom industry has now evolved to the 5th Generation (5G) of cellular networking technologies. These 5G networks are expected to make significant improvements over the current 4th generation technology including: improved data rates, enhanced coverage areas, support for greater simultaneous end-user connections, latency reduction, and improved spectral and signaling efficiency.

Given that you’re here taking advance Telecom classes, it is time to explore the technologies that underpin the 5th Generation Cellular networks and be able to generate a report with a summary of your findings. Two and a half hours from now, you will have written the report and developed an understanding of convergence of technologies that underpins 5G networks.
