By providing higher bandwidth capacity than current 4G-enabled network capabilities, 5G will enable a higher density of mobile broadband users and support ultra-reliable device-to-device and massive machine communications with the following features.

  1. Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) for high-capacity and ultra-fast mobile communications for phones and infrastructure, virtual and augmented reality, 3D and ultra-HD video, and haptic feedback.
  2. Ultra-reliable and Low Latency (URLLC) for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications and autonomous driving.
  3. Massive Machine-Type Communications (mMTC) for consumer and industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 mission-critical machine-to-machine (MC-M2M) communication.
