Cellular systems are growing into their fifth generation (5G). Trials of 5G technologies are already underway and extensive deployments of 5G are expected in the coming years. In this webinar, I explain several new revolutionary applications of cellular communication, which place new requirements on the design of 5G. These applications involve vehicular- and aerial-to-everything communications for mobile robots, or ultra-reliable low rate communications in the context of IoT. Then I describe different technical elements of 5G enabling these new applications. Some examples of these technologies are massive MIMO, millimeter wave communication, or network slicing. Finally, I categorize these technologies based on how much they disrupt 4G thinking.
