Location Awareness in Beyond 5G Networks
MetadataShow full item record
Location awareness is essential for enabling contextual services and for improving network management in 5th generation (5G) and beyond 5G (B5G) networks. This paper provides an overview of the expanding opportunities offered by location awareness in wireless networks, discusses soft information (SI)-based approaches for improved location awareness, and presents case studies in conformity to the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standardization by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). Results show that SI-based approaches can provide a new level of location awareness in 5G and B5G networks.
