Today’s mobile networks are essentially designed to provide coverage and capacity for all connected users, devices and services. They compete for the same resources, but this generally works, for much of the time. In essence, they have been optimised for a single service – mobile broadband. However, as services have proliferated, it’s become clear that the network needs to evolve to enable different services, with different needs to be delivered, consistently. In addition to other advances, this capability to support multiple differentiated services is what the next generation of mobile network technology, 5G, will unlock.
