Abstract: The impending advent of 5th generation (5G) mobile communications promises near unlimited access to information and data sharing any time and everywhere.  This will challenge the reliability, security as well as energy and cost efficiency, for both future devices and future radio access networks (i.e. the infrastructure).  We review the evolution of radio access networks with respect to energy and cost efficiency and introduce 5G in this context.
The 5G networks will cover diverse applications such as high capacity low-latency cells with large antenna arrays as well as low-power machine-type communications with modest data rate requirements. Future system requirements are discussed in this context and potential access methods outlined.  Array-antenna systems for high-speed cells pose new design challenges and several hardware-based test-bed demonstrators are in development.  We provide examples from ongoing work and discuss implementation issues.
Bio:  Sven Mattisson received his PhD in Applied Micro Electronics from Lund University in 1986. From 1987 through 1994 he was an associate professor in Applied Micro Electronics in Lund where his research was focused on circuit simulation and analog ASIC design. In 1995 he joined Ericsson in Lund to work on cellular handset development. Presently he is with Ericsson Research in Lund, where he holds a position as senior expert in analog system design. Since 1996 he is also an adjunct professor at Lund University. Dr. Mattisson is a coinventor of Bluetooth and has been serving as technical program committee member for the International Solid-State Circuits Conference and the European Solid-State Circuits Conference. Presently he is working on 5G radio circuits.
