The world is advancing towards faster technologies like 5G while making the performance of various sectors efficient and improving the overall eco-system. Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) by the start of Sep, 2017 has identified 81 mobile operators in 42 countries that are currently testing/trialling or are being licensed to launch filed tests of 5G technology.

In this regard, the President of GSA. Joe Barrett said that:
“We have been able to identify a wide range of operators usually working in close cooperation with GSA Member companies that have announced over 140 separate demonstrations, tests or trials. Key pre-standards 5G technologies are being explored operating in spectrum bands not previously used for mobile telecoms services; 28 GHz has been the spectrum band most often utilized.”
According to the report, these trials up till now have demonstrated the network slicing in order to support the delivery of services for specific types of customers; combinations of technologies such as massive MIMO, complex beam-forming that are needed to achieve very high speeds, backhaul, cloud and alos edge computing arrangements to support very low latencies.
The efforts are on their way to successfully launch 5G for the greater benefit of public and make this world a better and connect place.
