5G challenges, potential enablers, and design principles.

Based on current trends, it is generally understood that 5G mobile networks must address six challenges that are not adequately addressed by state-of-the-art deployed networks (Long Term Evolution-Advanced, LTE-A): higher capacity, higher data rate, lower E2E latency, massive device connectivity, reduced capital and operations cost, and consistent QoE provisioning. These challenges are shown in the schematic here, together with some potential enablers to address them. The figure provides an overview of the challenges, enablers and corresponding design principles for 5G. It must be noted that the enablers highlighted in the figure also introduce their own set of challenges and corresponding key performance indicators (KPIs).
