5G Outlook on Challenges and Technologies for the Future Network Architectures

  1. 1. 5G networks of the future: Evolution or revolution? CROWD Workshop Jan 14, 2014 - L’Aquila (Italy) Claudio Cicconetti
  2. 2. Agenda 1. Challenges: today and tomorrow a.k.a. why we need 5G 2. Innovations with potential to address them a.k.a. what 5G might look like This talk will be only about network architecture advances. Of course, future network research is also active on physical layer aspects! CROWD workshop - L’Aquila (Italy) - January 14, 2014 - Presenter: claudio.cicconetti@intecs.it

  4. 4. Challenges (today) CROWD workshop - L’Aquila (Italy) - January 14, 2014 - Presenter: claudio.cicconetti@intecs.it
  5. 5. New challenges Lots of smart phones + flat billing + decreasing revenue per bit = a big headache BUT THAT’S NOTHING! CROWD workshop - L’Aquila (Italy) - January 14, 2014 - Presenter: claudio.cicconetti@intecs.it
  6. 6. Challenges (tomorrow) Massive Machine Comms Machine != human ₋ many more devices (10x-100x) ₋ very long battery lifetimes (> 5Y) ₋ low-cost devices (< 1€) ₋ small payloads (few bytes) ₋ fast setup (few 10’s ms) ₋ low latency (< 1 ms) ₋ what else? CROWD workshop - L’Aquila (Italy) - January 14, 2014 - Presenter: claudio.cicconetti@intecs.it
  7. 7. Challenges (tomorrow) Safety-critical domains Smart grid / smart city V2X communications PPDR High-speed train signalling CROWD workshop - L’Aquila (Italy) - January 14, 2014 - Presenter: claudio.cicconetti@intecs.it
  8. 8. Challenges (tomorrow) Mobile cloud-based apps Bandwidth-intensive, e.g.: ₋ cloud storage ₋ SaaS Latency-sensitive, e.g.: ₋ speech recognition ₋ tactile feedback CROWD workshop - L’Aquila (Italy) - January 14, 2014 - Presenter: claudio.cicconetti@intecs.it
  9. 9. Challenges (tomorrow) Video streaming Bandwidth demand is skyrocketing ₋ 3DTV ₋ 4k resolution ₋ multi-angle CROWD workshop - L’Aquila (Italy) - January 14, 2014 - Presenter: claudio.cicconetti@intecs.it
  10. 10. Requirements of some 5G applications Requirement Very strict Intermediate Typical applications on smart phones and tablets, V2I Relaxed High bit-rate Video equipments (3DTV, real-time streaming devices, remote conference) IoT, V2V Fast mobility Applications running on Everything else smart phones and tablets on the road, V2V/I Home and office appliances, IoT (most) High reliability PPDR, IoT (some), V2V/I Everything else -- Low latency Game consoles, IoT (some), V2V/I, PPDR (some) Web & mobile apps, cloud computing IoT (some) Low energy consumption IoT devices (most) Smart phones and tablets Cabled devices CROWD workshop - L’Aquila (Italy) - January 14, 2014 - Presenter: claudio.cicconetti@intecs.it
  11. 11. ? ? ? ? 5G Let’s innovate! ?
  12. 12. A few innovations... …that could make it to a 5G network: ₋ Cloud RAN ₋ Software Defined Networking ₋ Network Function Virtualization ₋ Cooperative communications ₋ Flexible backhauling CROWD workshop - L’Aquila (Italy) - January 14, 2014 - Presenter: claudio.cicconetti@intecs.it
