The introduction of 5G brings exciting new service opportunities to consumers, and brings new challenges to network operators. The rapidly-rising demand for increased data traffic and ubiquitous coverage, along with new functions and services for 5G, are likely to require the deployment of small cells in hyper-dense HetNet environments.
New designs (including virtual elements), additional spectrum resources, new regulatory processes, and new & innovative business methods will be needed, as well as innovative new methods to install, setup, and maintain cell sites.
This white paper summarizes the issues and challenges that will accompany 5G hyper-dense deployments and offers mitigation techniques to enable the challenge to be met.
