With 5G, telecommunications networks have entered
a new phase. 5G mobile networks use unique concepts and technologies to
deliver current and future applications across a wide spectrum, from high
bit-rate smartphones to high-availability car-to-x and mass IoT applications.
This book on 5G technology starts with the evolution
of mobile networks to 5G. It then addresses basic concepts and technologies
such as NGN, IMS, virtualization with NFV and MEC, SDN, and Service Function
The 5G environment is comprehensively presented,
starting with use cases and usage scenarios and moving on to concrete requirements,
as well as the standardization at ITU and especially 3GPP, including regulation.
In this context, the 5G system design, the 5G
access networks with their high-performance transmission technology, and
the core network with the innovative concepts of Service Based Architecture
and Network Slicing play a significant role. A 5G system is presented here
in an integrated view, rounded off by an overview of all relevant IT security
The overall view is concluded by looking at the
environmental influences of electromagnetic radiation and the energy and
raw material resources requirements. Furthermore, the future development
of 5G up to 6G is outlined.
The book's main objective is to provide people
interested in 5G technology and application scenarios with a well-founded
knowledge for an introduction to 5G and encourage further discussion of
this topic. The target audience is generally technically interested persons,
mostly employees of public and private network operators. This book should
be of particular interest, especially within the IT departments of potential
5G user companies, and of course, among computer science and electrical
