5G Network Projects

5G Network Projects

5G Network Projects work towards more fast data transmission over the advanced network elements. Fifth Generation (i.e.) 5G is the newest standard for cellular networks. It is the great successor of the 4G (LTE) standard. Greater Bandwidth and Faster Data Speed (upload and download) are the main visions of 5G. Probably, the data rate will touch 10 Gbps under any environment. 

Though 5G is a cellular standard, it also covers myriad application areas. In order to get the value of 5G, we must go through its applications. 

Application-oriented 5G Concepts

  • URLLC in industrial automation
  • D2D for disaster management
  • MTC, MMC, and M2M in public safety
  • Real-time Video Streaming over Multi-paths
  • Grid to vehicle interconnections

   As 5G Network Projects are new in this era, we need to extract a lot of essence from it. To start with 5G, Architectural and Technological views will offer a fine way. 

ARCHITECTURAL VIEW UPON 5G NETWORK PROJECTS

   First of all, the 5G, which is the new radio tech, uses the advanced architecture. In fact, 5G works on two modes, such as Non-Standalone (works with 4G) and Standalone (without 4G) modes. In any mode, it has two main structures as 5G Core and 5G Access Network RAN.

5G Core

  • SDN and NFV are the key elements
  • Controls overall network, including RAN
  • Major Functions include,
    • Access and Mobility Management 
    • Session Management Function
    • Also, User Plane Function   

5G RAN (Radio Access Network)

  • Connects Mobile Place with 5G Core
  • Integrates with other techs like Cloud
  • Intend Functions Include,
    • Network Traffic Scheduling 
    • Link Adaption and Power Control
    • Interference Coordination and Mitigation
    • Retransmission, Encoding, and also Modulation

   Core and RAN are designed in such a way so that it can support Multiple Users, Traffic, and Services at the time. So far, 5G deployment takes place in four types as Femtocell, Pico Cell, MicroCell, and Metro Cell.

Challenges that Confine the Development of 5G Network Projects

  • Self-Interference and Blockages
  • Spectrum Management and Capacity
  • Data Rate and Reliability Restrictions
  • Presence of Massive UEs and Connections
  • Channel Noise and also Errors

   These challenges are in the focus of many researchers. On the other hand, as we all know, the 5G network must also support all data rate demands within SLA agreements. In order to handle these aspects, 5G Core and RAN use different techs, as we discussed in below. 

TECHNOLOGICAL VIEW ON 5G

  • Massive and MU-MIMO (up to 64 Channels)
  • Mobile Cloud and Edge Computing 
  • Analog and Digital Beamforming
  • Secure Network Slicing and Resource Management 
  • Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access (NAMO)
  • CR based Unlicensed Spectrum Access
  • Modulation (OFDMA, FBMC, and GFDM)
  • THz band and Millimeter Wave Communication
  • Optical Fiber Link Establishment over 5G XHaul 

   All above techs are now in practice to enrich 5G Network Projects. To tell truth, these techs intend to resolve the issues in 5G. When we have the research problem and solution, we have to find a way to validate it. To tell truth, simulation is one of the best ways. Unlike other networks, 5G has its own simulators. Since, a 5G project covers diverse entities like UEs, gNB, EPC, Switches and so on will yield phd research topics in 5g network. Even the popular tools also have the separate modules for 5G.

Intend 5G Simulation Tools and Modules

  • 5G-LENA (NS-3)
  • SimuLTE (OMNeT++)
  • 5G Toolbox (Matlab)
  • NetTest and NetSim
  • Also NYUSIM

   Although 5G is a broad area, don’t get panic since we also widen our assistance. To end this, we have a keen knowledge of each curve of the 5G road. So far, 10K+ clients have chosen our path to reach success. To become one of them, then leave a mail to us.
