New Considerations for 5G Wireless Systems 

The fifth-generation (5G) wireless system is a major transformation from the current cellular network to a network of everything that connects all people and machines in service-based architecture. Accordingly, the 5G network enforces different performance metrics based on the caller type and service requested.

IEEE 5G Tech Focus May 2018:  Special Issue on Optical Technology in NextGen Networking 

It is well-established that 5G is the next generation wireless network technology that is expected to significantly increase data speeds, produce ultra-low latency times, support the connection of many more devices, and increase energy efficiency of the network elements.  To achieve these goals, 5G will need significant contributions and innovations from photonics technologies, whether it be creating the appropriate transport infrastructure with the necessary high capacity, the relevant x-hauling architectures or even utilizing microwave photonics devices and topologies to distribute the wireless signals.  Due to the relevance of photonics technology to 5G, we have compiled some relevant and timely articles highlighting where photonics can play a role in 5G.
