Physical Layer Research Areas in 5G Wireless Networks


Physical Layer Research in 5G Wireless Networks requires focus on some key areas where most of the challenges arise.

These are: 

  • Millimeter wave
  • Beamforming 
  • Massive MIMO Systems
  • Full Duplex Radio Technology

Some of the key points and highlights in these areas you can see below.

The above table is from  M. Agiwal, A. Roy and N. Saxena, "Next Generation 5G Wireless Networks: A Comprehensive Survey," in IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials, vol. 18, no. 3, pp. 1617-1655, thirdquarter 2016. doi: 10.1109/COMST.2016.2532458  Click here for reference

Which one do you think is most challenging for you? (or your network).
