Abstract

The present paper studies 5G challenges, requirements and key differentiating characteristics from the perspective of a Romanian mobile operator. The main contribution is that we created a vision about the use cases, physical and logical architecture needed to support these uses cases and other key differentiated factors, that the deployment of a future 5G network will bring in a mobile network. This global vision was made after studying and analyzing the results and publication of the most important research and industry projects on 5G, realized until now. Our main goal is to be prepared in 2020 to develop a commercial 5G network and this analysis was made to observe the main changes and the new requirements that this implementation will bring in our current mobile network.
