Building 5G networks for consumer use cases

Share

Consumption of video on smartphones and tablets will continue to be the primary driver of traffic growth over mobile networks during the next several years, while during that same time period, 5G networks are expected to drive many new and innovative use cases for industries and consumers that will begin to generate significant traffic load. Consumers envision a range of use cases that will place increasing demands on network performance in terms of high throughput and low latency, and consumers will expect 5G networks to outperform 4G networks even as network traffic growth reaches record levels.

 

To build 5G networks that meet the dual challenges of aggressive traffic growth combined with higher network performance over wide area geographical coverage will require that operators deploy multi-band 5G networks with ample amounts of low-band, mid-band, and high-band (mmWave) spectrum. The new 5G NR air interface, working in conjunction with technologies such as Massive MIMO and leveraging Carrier Aggregation between bands, will allow operators to get the most out of their spectrum holdings by maximizing spectral efficiency, while Dynamic Spectrum Sharing will enable operators to migrate their legacy spectrum holdings from 4G to 5G more aggressively compared to any previous technology transition. These technologies will enable operators to transition quickly to NR Standalone (SA) network architecture running on 5G Core, thereby realizing the full potential of 5G by offering next generation services and supporting new use cases with network slicing.

Biography:

Robert McCrorey has worked in the mobile telecommunications industry since 1995, where he joined Ericsson shortly after receiving his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. He has worked at Ericsson in the radio access technology domain during his entire 25-year career, starting with 2G (GSM), followed by technology migrations to 3G (WCDMA), 4G (LTE), and now 5G (NR). He is a now a Principal Solutions Manager at Ericsson, where he supports his primary customer, T-Mobile, and drives executive-level discussions related to radio network growth and technology evolution strategy and ensures that Ericsson delivers radio hardware and software systems that fulfill his customers’ business requirements.
