"5G refers to wireless technology that isn't expected to be deployed until 2020 at the earliest," notes Michelle Donegan, research analyst with Heavy Reading 4G/LTE Insider and author of the report. "The race is on to be first with 5G at a political level and among technology researchers and developers."

Now is the time for big ideas, to question and challenge current wireless systems and to imagine how 5G networks could do better and what communications needs they could meet, Donegan says. "Researchers are looking beyond the network and studying social interaction and human behavior to better understand how mobile traffic patterns will grow and change," she continues. "5G will be different from 4G if it is designed for various use cases rather than just peak data rates or coverage, if it is optimized for M2M communications, if it heralds new licensing regimes and if it has energy efficiency built into the system from the start."

Key findings of 5G Development Plans Begin to Take Shape include:

  • The race is on to be first with 5G – for national governments as well as technology vendors
  • The European Union was early to fund and promote 5G research projects
  • 5G visions prepare for 1,000 times more mobile traffic and 100 times more connected devices by 2020
  • Connecting things and M2M are common themes in most 5G visions
  • Energy efficiency may be a key metric and designed into 5G systems
  • In terms of new spectrum for 5G, many are eyeing much higher frequencies, such as millimeterwave
  • New licensing regimes and spectrum sharing will be necessary
  • The current exploratory research phase for 5G will continue for next 12 to 18 months
