This paper presents the energy performance of a new radio access technology (RAT) component in 5G, here denoted as 5G-NX. The 5G-NX RAT encompasses massive beamforming and an ultra-lean design as two of its key technology components. The user throughput, resource utilization of the cells and daily average area power consumption are evaluated by means of system level simulations in an Asian city scenario, and the results are compared with a traditional LTE deployment using the same network… CONTINUE READING
