ICT103 System Analysis and Design
5G is the newest mobile network technology that is replacing the current 4G technology by providing high data rate, reduced latency, energy saving, cost reduction, higher system capacity, and massive device connectivity. Mobile service providers are planning to migrate to this technology to support the growing number of devices that demand internet access, many of them requiring so much bandwidth in order to function normally that 4G simply doesn't cut it anymore. To read more .
The assessment requires the students to identify the challenges in 5G technology compare with the current wireless communication technologies and consider the proposed solutions to address the 5G limitations. Evaluate the wireless communication standards for wireless cyber physical systems and internet of things. The students are required to submit a report, which includes:
1. Comparison of the existing cellular networks generations (5G, 4G, 3G, and 2G) in terms of:
a. Communication spectrum
b. modulation techniques
c. medium access control mechanism
d. Network speed and bandwidth utilization
e. Security techniques and risk
2. Explore the architecture of a 5G network
3. Identify and analyse the security issues associated with 5G networks.
4. Identify and analyse the issue related to 5G network coverage? What is a solution to address this limitation?
