Gilles Garcia, Xilinx’s Communications Business Lead, recently appeared on TelecomTV in connection with the ETSI 5G Network Infrastructure Summit, held in Sophia Antipolis just outside of Nice, France on April 6. TelecomTV’s Director of Content asked Gilles about the 5G networking challenges he’s seeing as Xilinx works with the major 5G infrastructure equipment suppliers. Gilles answered with three major groups of challenges:

 

  • Standards evolution: According to 3GPP, you should expect to continue to see changes to existing 5G standards as the industry gains experiences with 5G network build outs.

 

  • Power: It continues to be hard to achieve the required 5G network performance levels within the available power envelopes.

 

  • Ripple effect: Adoption of 5G networking standards has a ripple effect of requiring backhaul and fronthaul improvements and the introduction of all-new concepts to the mobile network such as adding machine learning to the mobile edge to automatically accommodate usage ebb and flow.
