Mobile networks continue to evolve ahead of the much-anticipated 5G standards in 2020. This program researches the network technologies updating today's mobile networks, including LTE-A, Cloud RAN, MU-MIMO, the virtualised mobile edge and core, and architectures for evolving to 5G.

This program also provides insights into the use cases for 5G, networking in the higher spectrum bands, 4G and 5G interworking and the requirements these needs will place on mobile networks and the vendors that provide them.

Key themes
