5G network-based Internet of Things for demand response in smart grid: A survey on application potential
Emerging 5G networks and 5G-based Internet of Things (IoTs) can doubtless provide better infrastructure for DR, owing to 5G’s advantages of fast transfer speed, high reliability, robust security, low power consumption, and massive number of connections. However, nearly none of the existing studies have applied 5G technology to DR, which will be the subject surveyed in this paper.
Prospective Multiple Antenna Technologies for Beyond 5G
Multiple antenna technologies have attracted much research interest for several decades and have gradually made their way into mainstream communication systems. Two main benefits are adaptive beam-forming gains and spatial multiplexing, leading to high data rates per user and per cell, especially when large antenna arrays are adopted.
