An explosive growth in the demand for higher data rates and capacity along with diverse requirements set by massive and ultra-reliable machine-type communications are the main drivers behind the development on new access technologies as part of the fifth generation (5G) networks. Currently, different air interface (AIF) and/or AIF variants, optimized based(More)
Network slicing addresses the deployment of multiple logical networks as independent business operations on a common physical infrastructure. The concept has initially been proposed for the 5<sup>th</sup> Generation (5G) core network (CN) however, it has not been investigated yet what network slicing would represent to the design of the 5G radio access(More)
Integration of Carrier Wi-Fi and 3rd. generation partnership project (3GPP) networks is currently one of the hottest topics in the agenda of the mobile industry. Wi-Fi is one key element of heterogeneous networks to handle the traffic explosion in the coming years and as such an integral part of a complete mobile broadband solution. In order to exploit its(More)
Designing and developing a millimetre-wave(mmWave) based mobile Radio Access Technology (RAT) in the 6-100 GHz frequency range is a fundamental component in the standardization of the new 5G radio interface, recently kicked off by 3GPP. Such component, herein called the new mmWave RAT, will not only enable extreme mobile broadband (eMBB) services,but also(More)
In this paper, we describe a research prototype conceived to demonstrate how subscriber analytics can be used to personalize mobile broadband (MBB) offers. The concept relies on the fact that i) the mobile networks are underutilized in certain areas during certain periods and highly loaded in others and ii) the contribution of different subscribers to the(More)
