Spectrum for 5G Services

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


The unprecedented growth in mobile data traffic has choked network capacity of existing IMT/IMT-A (3G/4G) networks. Work on next generation mobile communication system (5G) i.e. IMT 2020 is underway and likely to come in the year 2020. The 5G network envisages data speed of 1 Tbps and beyond. To realise the IMT 2020, radio spectrum is an essential element. Presently, mobile communications are operating between 700 and 3600 MHz. These spectrum bands do not have the capacity to carry such enormous data. Millimeter (mm) frequency band beyond 10 GHz is the most preferred band for 5G. Radiocommunication sector of ITU is in the process to identify the frequency bands for IMT 2020, which will be finalised in the WRC 2019. There are considerable differences in the spectrum bands currently in use and MM waves in terms of propagation characteristics, interference management and system design etc. In this paper, frequency bands under consideration for 5G services has been discussed.
