With 4G cellular technologies now beginning to be deployed widely around the world, the fifth generation (5G) mobile and wireless communication technologies are emerging into research fields. New services, applications and devices will drive requirements on data rate, ubiquity of data services, latency, cost, and reliability and further drive data traffic growth. Networks, services, and devices will be more heterogeneous and the need to connect billions of devices to the network will emerge. To meet the above challenges, 5G wireless systems will require a mix of new system concepts to boost spectral efficiency, energy efficiency, latency, and the network design. In this talk, we will introduce this exciting research area and discuss some of our recent work that can potentially help to meet these challenges in 5G wireless systems.
