Pursuit for a new feasible technology has always been the main intention of every telecom company. Keeping in line with current trends, user preferences and requirements, technology standards have evolved from 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G. The new standards proved an opportunity for the technology community to address certain limitations that has been observed in the 4G network. Critical issues like enhancement of battery power, bandwidth restrictions, and latency, among other things, have been drastically improved. Thus, this chapter intends to discuss the various performance parameters, necessities, evolutionary enhancements, and the challenges to deploy 5G Mobile network.
