NetworkgraphWireless World Initiative New Radio
Mobile and wireless communication has seen a tremendous growth in the last years. According to the ITU, the number of mobile subscribers worldwide has increased from 215 million in 1997 to more than 1000 million today.
Many future services will require higher data rates and, therefore, higher bandwidth in order to provide suitable user satisfaction. For this reason, new and more efficient radio access technologies will be needed. In addition, there is an ongoing paradigm shift driven by the user who expects ubiquitous communication providing higher performance at a suitable cost-benefit-ratio without having to take care of the underlying technology.
