The Black and White of 5G
The understanding of 5G use cases and requirements are becoming clearer e.g. with the publication of the NGMN white paper and a good number of Nokia 5G white papers and presentations
5G technology demonstrations are already here, showing that many technologies that were more on the idea level just a year or two ago can be built.
Nokia, as a leading research organization participating in collaborative research projects, is helping the public 5G research to switch gears – the research will develop 5G building blocks further and organize them to an integrated 5G system embracing also LTE-Advanced evolution, Wi-Fi and fixed
Spectrum is the key, identifying sufficient spectrum in which to deploy the new technologies, and having a focused execution in standardization are together needed to make the concepts and architecture innovations a successful reality
Nokia passionately supports right technology related policies that enables healthy ecosystem in 5G era
Nokia vision is a 5G as a platform for innovation expanding human possibilities of the connected world. Nokia hosting a Brooklyn 5G summit to gather the industry and academia together around 5G.

Building a new Foundation
5G use cases distinguished by their diversity – no single dominant case that will drive system requirements. All need to be supported within sustainable economic models
Until now, Network evolution to accommodate the new usage models that have emerged since the design of the internet has been accomplished by adding layers of complexity. Continuing to increase complexity works counter to building better cost efficiency.
It is time to understand and consider a network architecture that incorporates capabilities we consider essential today in the fundamental design of the network. These properties include Mobility, Security and Storage.
With a visionary approach to 5G, the Mobility industry is poised to lead the creation of a new networking foundation that economically serves the 2nd 50 years of data networking

5G Vision & Research for 2020 and Beyond
5G addresses the needs beyond today’s trends including the need for more data, devices, richer content (4K video) and connected “things” for the internet of everything.
5G is about enabling new services and devices, connecting new industries, and empowering new user experiences
Supporting the variety of use cases we foresee in 2020 and beyond: mobile broadband (indoor/ outdoor), health services, smart phones, sensing what’s around you, etc.
New services, industries, and experiences will drive 5G requirements: always-on devices, robotics, etc.
Support all that has been added to 4G, and much more; All licensed and unlicensed spectrum, addition of higher bands such as mmWave.
5G will transform the internet: with the device not being just an end-point, but an integral part of the network

5G: Roaming and Interconnect (or not?)
How do you roam when you have a 1ms delay budget?
Where do you interconnect to content if everything has local context?
How do roaming and interconnect settlement regimes evolve to account for an Internet of Things dominated market place?
No-one knows, but we’ll need to find answers before 5G is live.
18.00 - 18.10: Way Forward, Closing
The publication and dissemination of the NGMN 5G White Paper is only the initial step on the roadmap towards 5G launch and deployment. The key objective of NGMN’s future activities is that the commercial 5G solutions will fulfil the NGMN requirements. In order to reach this objective, detailed milestones and a roadmap needs to be defined and the necessary steps within the roadmap have to be outlined. Guiding principle is that the migration towards 5G and the development of 5G solutions should be as efficient as possible for the operator and supplier industry stakeholders, and as beneficial and seamless as possible for the end-user.
