Abstract

We started a new research project in the 'advanced 5G' era that aims at accommodating various types of communications involving current and emerging services with different data flow-level quality requirements. In this paper, the objectives and the technical aspects of the research project are introduced. We propose an architecture based on a virtualized radio access network (vRAN) that enables adaptive control of equipment resources and location of functions in the vRAN environment in accordance with spatially and temporally changing communication demands. The seven planned research items that are essential for realizing the advanced 5G network are listed as follows: blockage prediction, new radio access technologies (RATs) and their implementations with software-defined radio (SDR), adaptive interference and resource control, integration of radio and fiber resource control, highly efficient access transmission control, adaptive placement of BS functions, and quality aware traffic pattern prediction.
