5G New Radio (NR): Massive MIMO

© 2017 Tripathi/Reed
Self-Organizing Network (SON)
• Think about the scale of the radio network…
• Manual configuration: History
• Drive testing for optimization: History
• Automation via algorithms but human
• Ex: Automatic configuration of cell/sector

• Key building blocks of 5G include New Radio (NR), 5GC,
Network Slicing, MEC, NFV, and SDN.
• Massive MIMO helps achieve high capacity and high data
• MEC reduces end-to-end delay.
• Network Slicing provides custom QoS.
• NFV and SDN facilitate design and deployment of 5G
