Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, showcases its 5G network architecture and air interface technology set for the first time at the 2015 Mobile World Congress (MWC).  At the 2014 Global Mobile Broadband World Forum held in Shanghai this past November, Huawei's rotating CEO Mr. Zhijun Xu proposed that 5G must focus on the development of the Internet of Things (IoT) and make breakthroughs to support the expansion and enhancement of mobile Internet. The application of 5G in IoT and vertical industries will bring more market space and present business opportunities to operators. In addition, expanded and enhanced mobile Internet services will help further improve the user experience, strengthen user stickiness, increase the average revenue per user (ARPU), and guarantee operators' revenues and profits.  To adequately support the development of mobile Internet and IoT, 5G must stimulate more breakthroughs in technologies, especially network architecture and air interface technologies. 5G networks should also be more open in involving every role within the service process to engage in customizing services and networks. In order to meet these requirements, Huawei proposed the concepts of new air interface, architecture, and operation for 5G at MWC 2015.  At their exhibition booth, Huawei demonstrated the physical and logical architectures of 5G networks with the use of a flash. This flash showed how the physical architecture is sliced to meet different service requirements as well as the dynamic changes in network elements (NEs) and functions involved in the slicing process…
