5G Technology Features, bands, architecture, deployment, 5G Mobile phones

This 5G wireless technology section covers 5G features, 5G bands, 5G architecture, 5G deployment modes, 5G mobile phones manufacturers, 5G cell phone architecture etc. in the form of tutorials, terminologies and articles.

5G wireless technology is similar to other cellular wireless technologies such as 2G, 3G and 4G. It supports same as well as advanced features compare to backward wireless technologies. Refer 4G vs 5G >> for difference between 5G and other wireless technologies. It supports various frequency bands across the world including above 6 GHz (mmwave bands), below 6 GHz and below 1 GHz. Refer 5G NR Bands >> or 5G Frequency Bands >>. The 5G throughputs of about 20Gbps in the downlink and 10Gbps in uplink are benchmarked by most of the 5G network operators. Throughput speeds of about 5Gbps to 10 Gbps have been achieved during 5G field trials by them till now.

5G NR (New Radio) architecture

5G NR Overall architecture

5G NR overall architecture is shown in the following figure-2. This is as defined in the 3GPP TS 38.300 specification. Refer 5G network architecture >>

5G Deployment Scenarios or modes

5G NR deployment scenarios-1

There are two modes underwhich 5G Cell phone operates viz. standalone and non-standalone. In non-standalone mode, 5G cell phone relies on backward technology such as LTE for control channel signaling and performs data handshake in 5G wireless mode. In standalone mode, 5G cell phone performs both control and data handshake itself without the need of any backward standards or technologies. Refer 5G Deployment Modes>> for more information.

5G NR Network Interfaces

5G NR gNB interfaces

Refer 5G NR network interfaces which include Xn interface, NG interface, E1 interface, F1 interface and F2 interface. Refer 5G NR interfaces >>.

5G Channel Types

5G Channels, 5G Logical channels, 5G Transport Channels

5G channel types cover logical channels and transport channels used in uplink and downlink with mapping between them. The 5G logical channels include xBCCH, xCCCH, xDCCH, xDTCH etc. The 5G transport channels include xBCH, xDL-SCH, xRACH, xUL-SCH etc. Refer 5G Channel Types >>.

5G Protocol Stack

5G Protocol Stack- User Plane and Control Plane

The 5G layer-1 is PHYSICAL Layer. The 5G layer-2 include MAC, RLC and PDCP.The 5G layer-3 is RRC layer as shown in 5G protocol stack. Refer 5G protocol layer functions >>.
