Special Session on Technological Challenges for 5G communication

The current generation of the mobile system continues to transform the way people communicate and access information. Fifth generation wireless systems, commonly abbreviated as "5G", is the next step in the continuous innovation and evolution of the mobile industry, wireless networks will support 1,000-fold gains in capacity, connections for at least 100 billion devices, and a 10 gb/s individual user experience capable of extremely low latency and response times. Deployment of these networks will emerge between 2020 and 2030. 5G will not only be about a new air interface with faster speeds, but it will provide low energy, low-cost hardware and will support massive number of devices for a very dense crowd of users. The above will be achieved by building the network with both new radio access technologies (RAT) and by evolving existing wireless technologies (e.g. LTE, HSPA, GSM and Wi-Fi). Therefore, the complex performance requirement for 5G can be multi folds, apart from aiming to achieve a faster data rates to support ultra high definition video and virtual reality applications, it should be able to provide latency of less than 1 millisecond to support real time mobile control and vehicle -to- vehicle applications. Energy per bit usage should be reduced by a factor of 1,000 to improve connected device battery life, zero switching time between different radio technologies to ensure seamless delivery of services. The modulation techniques such as filter band multi carrier (FBMC), universal filtered multicarrier (UFMC), generalized frequency division multiplexing (GFDM) as well as high order MIMO (Multi-Input, MultiOutput) are another areas used in 5G to increase the bandwidth and data rates. While a shift to 5G would be hugely impactful, the industry will need to overcome a series of challenges if these benefits are to be realized, particularly in terms of spectrum and network topology. Therefore in this special session we would like to explore the technological challenges in designing, implementing and deploying 5G wireless systems. Thus, Papers in this session could present general 5G network architectures and frameworks as well as specific new designs and/or techniques.
