Key Principles

Architected to meet the expected use cases/demand


in 2020 and beyond

Allows time for true advances of technology,


feasibility studies, standardization and product
development
Inclusive of the entire ecosystem, including air
interface, devices, transport, packet core and more
A critical investment of the Americas

Features considered 5G requirements should


be implemented as LTE-Advanced extensions
in advance of full 5G availability.
