The purpose of this white paper is to understand, define, and advance North American requirements for 5G. Deployment scenarios and use cases for 5G networks are analyzed from a North American perspective. These use cases include both traditional and more disruptive service scenarios. The scope of the use cases is not limited to narrowly defined mobile network, and includes interactions with other components.
The white paper identifies unique characteristics of the North American network and regulatory requirements. Although the focus is on the North American market, it is considered in a global context to leverage synergies wherever possible, and to only identify new requirements where necessary.
