5G is presented as the new generation of mobile network infrastructure which will allow a jump in performances and the possibility of highly diverse uses.
The definition of the fifth generation mobile (5G) is centred around 3 major use scenarios (see ITU-R M.2083 report):
- very high speed mobile (> 1 Gbit/s),
- mass communications between machines (home automation, smart cities, internet of things, etc.)
- and ultra-reliable communications with very low latency (industrial applications, safety, ITS, etc.).
5G can be used in a wide variety of sectors (connected vehicles, healthcare, energy, industry, etc.). This involves increased network security control and expected gains in terms if quality of service, adaptability and low latency. 5G communication should therefore meet the needs of connected vehicles, industrial applications or more generally the internet of things.
