Abstract


5G RF technology is an essential part of the wireless mobile technology. Technically, 5G is predicted to empower people-thing and thing-thing interconnections by combining wireless technologies and networks. Our university has been actively support research on 4G/5G/IoT, in which the NB-IoT, eMTC and Massive Carrier Aggregation new features challenge are of big interest. New 5G trials put forward a lot of prerequisites for new RF interface in terms of radio bandwidth, power issues, as well as the huge number of connections for IoT capacity management and optimization. Based on Morocco’s current situation, this paper first discusses the 5G technologies; In addition, we will discuss IoT SoftRadio application support, and NB-IoT master plan recap. At last, based on the current plan of 5G RF KPIs management according to first Morocco 5G trail Results and Deployment plans.
