Ericsson: 3 Steps on the Road to 5G

The journey to 5G is well underway and progressing in 3 steps, says Erik Ekudden, VP & Head of Group Technology Strategy at Ericsson.

The first step in the implementation of a 5G-ready Core, where SDN and NFV are used for network slicing.  Next is the evolution of wide-area  IoT with LTE Cat-M, NB-IoT, etc.  And the third step is the rollout of 5G wireless access with the extreme capacity for AR/VR, 4k video streams, etc.
