Opportunity with 5G mobile and wireless communication is 10Gbps data rate possibility while in mobility, where as if we speak about challenges they are many like such as massive MIMO technologies, it will require a mix of new system concepts to boost spectral efficiency, energy efficiency and the network design, green communications, cooperative communications and heterogeneous wireless networks. and more will come up when the actual research will start experimentations.

Sounds like we got to pull out all the stops for this one.

Yes whenever some new development or concept is about to be thought of one will have the skies in the mind and once the thing starts getting developed the sky starts coming towards earth. :), it's a natural phenomena.

Europe seems to be at the forefront of the 5G movement. It still has a ways to go but the dedication to bringing 5G connectivity to end users is clearly there.

Japan is also after it, along with China and European Commission all are targeting 2020 for 5G implementations. Japan's NTT DoCoMo had announced that it had successfully tested 10 Gbps cellular data speeds last year using an 11 GHz frequency band.

At 10gbps, I would hit my data limit pretty quick.  Fortunately, I don't run that many data intesive applications, so I may last until mid month.  I wonder how much more 5G will cost the consumer.

It is right the data limits will be thirsted very soon at high data rates and you will be paying for the auto refreshing advertisements. But by the time 5G will be operational the net access pattern of people will be different. Also the cost of the services will depend how much the multinational are paying for the research and development of the technology.

"What opportunities and challenges do you see with 5G?"

HAH, that's funny, because here in the US, we're still waiting for real 4G!

And the challenges will include ensuring that the carriers to not screw the customers with bandwidth caps and costs, and battery life for handsets.

Clearly, by the time 5G is rolled out, the carriers will have evolved to a different business model or pricing structure for data. Not many consumers will shell out $10 for 1GB (8 gigabits) when they have a 10 GBPS connection. Imagine that, more than ten dollars per second for data charges!

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
