Introduction to ITU 5G
ITU 5G is the next generation of mobile communications. It will bring the speed and capacity of the world’s fastest fixed line networks to mobile users, enabling new experiences such as remote surgery, traffic management, and delivery of ultra-broadband wireless connections. ITU 5G will enable enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) through massive MIMO, and high throughput and low latency use cases. These include: ultra-reliable low-latency communications for eMBB, massive machine to machine IoT, ultra-reliable and low-latency communications for Aerial Surveillance, Passenger Entertainment (through vehicular and airborne platforms), Remote surgery, Augmented Reality Internet of Things applications in areas such as sensor networks or industrial automation. ITU 5G is a technology platform. It aims to enable the internet of everything by accelerating the convergence of capabilities between devices, applications, networks and services. The 5G standard will enable business model innovation and a range of use cases in new verticals such as automotive, transportation and public safety; industrial automation and manufacturing; smart city initiatives; healthcare; manufacturing; energy and utilities; retail; media and entertainment; communications for emerging markets (CEM). The ITU 5G group (ITU-R Working Team 5D) is an intergovernmental organization that focuses on building a shared roadmap for the transition from 4G to 5G and providing guidelines for the use of spectrum by operators and manufacturers. ITU-T standards for IMT-2020 services and system is developing 5G. In other words, it will provide an opportunity for communication service providers to deploy new network features at the highest rate of data throughput so far. ITU 5G is the next generation of 5G as specified by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The first 5G standard was completed in early 2019 and defined a wireless broadband access technology that supported multi-gigabit data rates, low latency and dynamic connections. ITU 5G is an industry standard for a set of networks and technologies for the fifth generation (5G) developed by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). It defines requirements, performance characteristics and deployment scenarios that relate to early pre-commercial deployments as well as trials that support interoperability testing. ITU (International Telecommunication Union) has defined the 5G technology standards, also known as IMT 2020. The ITU-R has specified the requirements for standardized mobile communication capabilities and services for IMT2020 system as well as a framework to be followed by individual countries for their own spectrum allocations. The evolution of mobile networks is changing the way we communicate and further enabling our digital economies. The fifth generation (5G) of wireless technology is a primary enabler of these changes and will require new wireless radio access technologies. In addition, 5G will need to operate over a large portion of the frequency range, with wide channel bandwidths (up to 100 MHz), low latency, high spectral efficiency and low power consumption. ITU 5G is the next generation of wireless technology. In fact, it’s the third generation of mobile communications networks, following 2G and 3G. The 5G standard raises the stakes in terms of speed and capabilities, with data rates an order of magnitude higher than 4G/LTE. ITU (International Telecommunication Union) 5G describes the technology for the next generation of telecommunications. In this document, 5G is defined as a comprehensive set of capabilities and performance requirements for future communication systems, including massive machine-type communications (MTC), ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (URLLC), large area coverage (LAC), and high speed train connectivity.
