5G Use Cases, Trials and Timelines


The mobile industry delivers a new radio access technology, network, architecture, and associated services on a 10-year cycle. If this pattern holds, it indicates 5G networks will launch commercially somewhere around 2020. In this session, panelists will discuss the commercial drivers for 5G and proposed technology timelines, with reference to North American trial programs.

Breakthrough Use Cases Driving 5G Vision


ATIS is evaluating 5G use cases to identify breakthrough opportunities with an initial focus on Quality of Experience (QoE). An end-to-end perspective is critical for a realistic assessment of QoE, requiring consideration of the broader ecosystem. Beyond the simple mechanics of QoE, ATIS is identifying opportunities for service providers to leverage superior QoE to create an ecosystem attractive to content and application providers, while providing enhanced value to service providers.
