Five disruptive technology directions for 5G

  title={Five disruptive technology directions for 5G},
  author={Federico Boccardi and Robert W. Heath and Angel E. Lozano and Thomas L. Marzetta and Petar Popovski},
  journal={IEEE Communications Magazine},
New research directions will lead to fundamental changes in the design of future fifth generation (5G) cellular networks. This article describes five technologies that could lead to both architectural and component disruptive design changes: device-centric architectures, millimeter wave, massive MIMO, smarter devices, and native support for machine-to-machine communications. The key ideas for each technology are described, along with their potential impact on 5G and the research challenges that… CONTINUE READING
