Abstract

As soon as 2020, network densification and spectrum extension will be the dominant theme to support enormous capacity and massive connectivity [1]. However, this approach may not guarantee wide area coverage due to the poor propagation capabilities of high frequency bands. In addition, energy efficiency and signalling overhead will become critical considerations in ultra-dense deployment scenarios. This calls for a futuristic two layer RAN architecture with dual connectivity, where the high frequency bands are used for data services, complemented by a coverage layer at conventional cellular bands [2]. This separation of control and data planes will enable a transition from always-on to always-available systems and could result in order of magnitude savings in energy and signalling overhead.
