5GPPP ONE5G: Moving 5G towards 5G-advanced

Thursday, 20 June 2019, 16:00-17:30, room R1

Session Chair:
  • Hans-Peter Mayer (Nokia Bell Labs, Germany)
  • Marie-Helene Hammon (Orange, France)
  • Gerhard Wunder (Freie Universität Berlin, Germany)

ONE5G’s main objective is to investigate and propose new features and advancements, focussing on the Radio Access Network (RAN) for moving “5G” towards “5G Advanced”. To prepare the next releases of 5G, beyond the first version (3GPP Release 15), the areas investigated are advanced multi-link access and interference management supported by massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) and Centralized Radio Access Networks (CRAN), End-to-End (E2E)-aware performance optimization through advanced radio resource allocation and multi-node connectivity orchestration, load balancing, spectrum management and device-to-device (D2D) communication. The scope of this special session is to present the major technical results in the context of the ONE5G’s main, highly diverging, deployment scenarios, i.e. “Megacities” and “Underserved Areas”.
