Novel Radio Technologies for Mobile Networks Discussed by IDATE Research in New Report Available at

30 Sep 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Enhancements in support for carrier aggregation will enable cellular providers to exploit their spectrum asset to the maximum and to provide higher data rates to their clients whilst increasing their network capacity. Improvements in antenna systems are set to enable higher bandwidth efficiency, reduced interferences and operation of mobile systems in frequencies above 6 GHz.

Over the long run, innovations in 3GPP Release 14 are expected to focus on the usage of unlicensed spectrum by cellular networks, reduction in latency, massive use of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antennas, active antenna systems (AAS) and indoor positioning system (IPS).

Further Releases are expected to prepare the ground for 5G with use of spectrum bands above 6 GHz, enhancements in control and signalling, work on novel modulation schemes, 3D massive MIMO, cognitive radios (CRs) and ultra-dense heterogeneous networks (HetNets).

New research study “New Radio Technologies for Mobile Networks: Key Pieces of the 4G+/5G Puzzle” elaborated by IDATE Consulting & Research (IDATE) examines the key radio technologies for mobile networks as of now and over the next five years. The report describes key technological innovations in the given area; offers an insightful overview of the radio access network (RAN) evolution in mobile networks; examines novel features in 3GPP Release alongside detailing its potential benefits in the years to come; presents a comparison of modulation schemes in current and future radio access technologies. It sheds light on 5G networks, describes the performance objectives for 5G and related use cases, present-day 5G roadmap, among other issues.
