Getting Ready for 5G
Peiying Zhu, Huawei Technologies Canada
Significant progresses have been made over the past few years in the standardization, field trials, commercial
deployment plans and vertical market usage evaluations. The large scale commercial deployment may be earlier
than the original anticipated 2020 target date. In this talk, an overview on the latest 3GPP 5G standard progress
will be given including highlights on the key technologies and its roadmap. In addition, the latest Huawei 5G
field trial results with multi-cells will be presented, including the demonstration of ultra-reliable and low latency
application of autonomous driving car.
