5G in a Nutshell

5G will revolutionize the world around us. 5G aims to offer amazing services such as holograms, 4k8k videos, countless ARVR Apps, automated factories, remote/assisted surgery, and self-driving cars. This seminar gives an overview of 5G. It discusses target 5G services and 5G performance targets. 5G has New Radio (NR) air interface, new radio network, and new core network. 5G utilizes concepts such as massive MIMO, network slicing, and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC). Key building blocks and associated concepts are introduced. In summary, this seminar provides a comprehensive introduction to 5G.
