Abstract: With 4G cellular technologies now beginning to be deployed widely around the world, the fifth generation (5G) mobile and wireless communication technologies are emerging into research fields. New services, applications and devices will drive requirements on data rate, ubiquity of data services, latency, cost, and reliability and further drive data traffic growth. Networks, services, and devices will be more heterogeneous and the need to connect billions of devices to the network will emerge. To meet the above challenges, small cell networks will be crucial to meet the requirements in terms of spectral efficiency and energy efficiency. In this talk, we will discuss some of our recent work in small cell networks that can potentially help us to meet such challenges.
