Summary: 
The next generation mobile system “5G” are under research, development and standardization for a service start of around year 2020. It is likely to use frequency bands higher than existing bands to have wider bandwidth for high throughput services. This paper reviews technical issues on higher frequency bands applying mobile systems including system trials and use case trials. It identifies expectations for antennas & propagation studies toward 5G era.
