The vision of 5G is driven from the predictions for up to 1000 times data required by 2020 and the fact that traffic will be dominated by video. Another key driver for 5G is the emergence of the Internet of Things; the vision of millions of objects being connected to each other and to the Internet. This is the enabler for ‘smart cities’; other ‘smart’ environments and the emergence of what is called ‘Big Data’ applications where massive amounts of data can be processed to feed a plethora of new applications. For 5G this implies being able to handle large quantities of low data communications efficiently covering widespread sensor networks and machine to machine (M2M) communications.
