5G: New Air Interface and Radio Access Virtualization (Huawei white paper)
5G is the next frontier of innovation for the wireless industry and the broader ICT ecosystem. It is common consensus that 5G will focus on the breakthroughs to support the expansion and enhancement of mobile internet and Internet of Things (IoT). The application of 5G in IoT and vertical industries will bring more market space and present business opportunities to operators. In addition, expanded and enhanced mobile internet services will help further improve the consumers experience, strengthen user stickiness and guarantee operators’ revenues and profits.
To adequately support the development of mobile Internet and IoT, 5G networks will increasingly become the primary means of network access for person-to-person and person-to-machine connectivity. This means that 5G will need to match the diversity of service requirements and service characteristics. Examples include extreme broadband, ultra-low latency, massive connection and ultra-high reliability etc., along with the ability to accommodate various use cases. The strong requirement of a service oriented network to provide better user experience in a flexible, efficient way is raised.
This paper outlines an overview of Huawei’s 5G air interface design including the key concepts of air interface adaptation and radio access virtualization. These two components together can bring the best user experience in the 5G wireless network.
