UK Spectrum Policy Forum - Simon Pike, Vodafone - 5G UK vision update plenary rev1

  1. 1. 5G A UK Perspective Simon Pike Vodafone 10 April ‘14 Update on progress
  2. 2. UK spectrum POLICY FORUM UK High Level 5G vision – Starting point There is support for this to be focused on future user needs: • “Always sufficient bandwidth to give the consumer the perception of infinite capacity” – DCMS UK spectrum Strategy • “Always sufficient bit rate to give the perception of unconstrained capacity” – The same in technical language (Vodafone contribution to ITU) – “Infinite” and “Bandwidth” could be misinterpreted • However the current ITU document is more focused on technology evolution • Aim of group is to develop contributions to ITU, to ensure that UK perspective is addressed 2
  3. 3. UK spectrum POLICY FORUM Progress so far • Kick-off meeting on 17th March – Agreed it is worthwhile to proceed with this task • First working meeting on 7th April – Agreement on main applications of 5G to be investigated – Agreement on key parameters to characterise these applications – Initial discussion on quantifying these parameters. 3
  4. 4. Potential applications of 5G • The following were identified as key potential applications for 5G Data (inc. cloud and video files) Voice Multimedia Critical Communications Internet of things • There is also a desire to consider long-term needs, beyond the horizon for service evolution – It is inherently not possible to analyse the capabilities needed • Need initially to consider indoor and outdoor base stations separately • Because of different user density and mobility • Applications will need to be merged, to reduce number Short Range peer-to-peer Low Latency (eg driverless cars) Moving platforms (eg trains) UK spectrum POLICY FORUM4
  5. 5. Parameters to characterise 5G • Eight key parameters have been identified to characterise the potential applications for 5G: ‘Sufficient bit rate’ Spectrum efficiency Latency Connection density Device battery life Capacity density (e.g. Gbit/s/km2 ) Coverage Reliability Mobility • Some are quantitative, others qualitative • In addition, there are common objectives for all applications: – Network energy efficiency – Cost • Eight key parameters have been identified to characterise the potential applications for 5G: T UK spectrum POLICY FORUM5
  6. 6. Suggested applications of 5G for study These applications will need to be grouped together, down to around four for submission to ITU. This table shows a possible starting point for the grouping In 2G, 3G and 4G, the control plane has been assumed to use a subset of capabilities of traffic channels. However, for 5G, the control plane might have separate requirements Downlink (served by outdoor cells) Data (inc. image upload) Voice Multimedia Moving Platforms Critical Communications Uplink (served by outdoor cells) Data (inc. image upload) Voice Moving Platforms Critical Communications Downlink (served by indoor cells) Data (inc. image upload) Voice Multimedia Uplink (served by indoor cells) Data (inc. image upload) Voice Internet of things Short range peer-to-peer Low Latency Long term target Control Plane UK spectrum POLICY FORUM6
  7. 7. Examples of diagrams • We plan to capture the results in a number of diagrams illustrating the capabilities needed for groups of applications • The following diagrams are examples of how the capabilities of 5G mwill be illustrated. • For each capability, the challenge of achieving increases with distance from the centre – i.e. latency reduces – This will become clearer when the axes are added • These will need to be defined to reflect the key parameters that we agree and the values for them. • The dotted lines show capabilities that exceed the requirements of the core application for one application for one parameter These diagrams are illustrative.

  8. 8. 5G – Outdoor cell downlink This diagram shows how applications that are similar but with a difference in one dimension can be treated This relates to services provided by an outdoor base station, whether the user is indoors or outdoors UK spectrum POLICY FORUM8 Moving Platforms Public Safety Spectrum efficiency Terminal battery life MobilityCoverage Reliability Connection density ‘Sufficient bit rate’ Latency Capacity density
  9. 9. 5G – Indoor cell downlink UK spectrum POLICY FORUM9 This relates to services provided by an indoor base station, assuming that the user is also indoors Spectrum efficiency Terminal battery life MobilityCoverage Reliability Connection density ‘Sufficient bit rate’ Latency Capacity density Are there any applications that need a higher bit rate from indoor cells?
  10. 10. UK spectrum POLICY FORUM10 Spectrum efficiency Terminal battery life MobilityCoverage Reliability Connection density ‘Sufficient bit rate’ Latency Capacity density 5G – Internet of things This is the aspect of M2M communications with a massive number of devices each of which communicate a small amount of data
  11. 11. UK spectrum POLICY FORUM11 Next steps • Gain a common understanding of the meaning of terms • Agree quantitative values or qualitative metrics for the key parameters for the key applications • Try to merge applications with commonalities – To reduce the number in the ITU contribution • Agree diagrammatic presentation • Develop text describing broader implications of the Vision • Develop ITU contribution to introduce these elements into ITU Vision working document
  12. 12. Develop UK perspective - quantify parameters • 5G Group meeting 8th May ITU Contribution describing UK perspective • Complete by end of May - one more physical meeting if needed • IFPG PTD 9th June • WP 5D 18-25 June, Canada Develop document for wider UK readership Develop UK perspective in second ITU contribution • IFPG PTD 26 August • ECC PT1 8-12 Sept (possible CEPT contribution to WP5D?) • WP5D 15 – 21 October Final UK comments on the ITU Vision document (probably in IFPG WGD) • WP5D 28 Feb – 4 March 2015 – ITU document will be stable (upgraded to PDNR) Timeline UK spectrum POLICY FORUM12
  13. 13. UK spectrum POLICY FORUM13 The end • Or is it just the beginning …… ?
