Thinking across the generations
Radio Network Evolution on the road to 5G
To understand future passive infrastructure requirements, it is of paramount importance to understand how networks are set to evolve. In this white paper, Ericsson explore how network architecture is set to change as the industry transitions towards 5G.
Until now, cellular network evolution has mainly been about moving from one generation of air interface to a new one that provides higher capacity and ever-increasing data rates. In essence, each mobile generation has been marked by technological advances in modulation schemes that improve efficiency to make optimal use of precious radio spectrum.
