Today and in the recent future, to full the presumptions and challenges of the near future, the wireless based networks of today will have to advance in various ways. Recent technology constituent like high speed packet access (HSPA) and long-term evolution (LTE) will be launched as a segment of the advancement of current wireless based technologies. Nevertheless, auxiliary components may also constitute future new wireless based technologies, which may adjunct the evolved technologies. Specimen of these new technology components are different ways of accessing spectrum and considerably higher frequency ranges, the instigation of massive antenna configurations, direct device to device communication, and ultra-dense deployments  Since its initiation in the late 1970s, mobile wireless

communication has come across from analog voice calls to current modern technologies adept of providing high quality mobile broadband services with end-user data rates of several megabits per second over wide areas and tens, or even hundreds, of megabits per second locally. The extensive improvements in terms of potentiality of mobile communication networks, along with the initiation of new types of mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets, have produced an eruption of new applications which will be used in cases for mobile connectivity and a resultant exponential growth in network. This paper presents our view on the future of wireless communication for 2020 and beyond. In this paper, we describe the key challenges that will be encountered by future wireless communication while enabling the networked society. Along with this, some technology routes that may be taken to full these challenges.



  1. Marconi, an Italian inventor, unlocks the path of recent day wireless communications by communicating the letter `S' along a distance of 3Km in the form of three dot Morse code with the help of electromagnetic waves. After this inception, wireless communications have become an important part of present day society. Since satellite communication, television and radio transmission has advanced to pervasive mobile telephone, wireless communications has transformed the style in which society runs. The evolution of wireless begins here. It shows the evolving generations of wireless technologies in terms of data rate, mobility, coverage and spectral efficiency. As the wireless technologies are growing, the data rate, mobility, coverage and spectral efficiency increases. It also shows that the 1G and 2G technologies use circuit switching while 2.5G and 3G uses both circuit and packet switching and the next generations from 3.5G to now i.e. 5G are using packet switching. Along with these factors, it also differentiate between licensed spectrum and unlicensed spectrum.



To contemplate 5G network in the market now, it is evident that the multiple access techniques in the network are almost at a still and requires sudden improvement. Current technologies like OFDMA will work at least for next 50 years. Moreover, there is no need to have a change in the wireless setup which had come about from 1G to 4G. Alternatively, there could be only the addition of an application or amelioration done at the fundamental network to please user requirements. This will provoke the package

providers to drift for a 5G network as early as 4G is commercially set up. To meet the demands of the user and to overcome the challenges that has been put forward in the 5G system, a drastic change in the strategy of designing the 5G wireless cellular architecture is needed. A general observation of the researchers has shown in that most of the wireless users stay inside for approximately 80 percent of

time and outside for approximately 20 percent of the time. In present wireless cellular architecture, for a mobile user to communicate whether inside or outside, an outside base station present in the middle of a cell helps in communication. So for inside users to communicate with the outside base station, the signals will have to travel through the walls of the indoors, and this will result in very high penetration loss,

which correspondingly costs with reduced spectral efficiency, data rate, and energy efficiency of wireless communications. To overcome this challenge, a new idea or designing technique that has come in to existence for scheming the 5G cellular architecture is to distinct outside and inside setups .With this designing technique, the penetration loss through the walls of the building will be slightly reduced.

This idea will be supported with the help of massive MIMO technology, in which geographically dispersed array of antenna's are deployed which have tens or hundreds of antenna units. Since present MIMO systems are using either two or four antennas, but the idea of massive MIMO systems has come up with the idea of utilizing the advantages of large array antenna elements in terms of huge capacity gains.



Here a detailed survey has been done on the performance requirements of 5G wireless cellular communication systems that have been defined in terms of capacity, data rate, spectral efficiency, latency, energy efficiency, and Quality of service. A 5G wireless network architecture has been explained in this paper with massive MIMO technology, network function virtualization (NFV) cloud and device to

device communication. Certain short range communication technologies, like WiFi, Small cell, Visible light communication, and millimeter wave communication technologies, has been explained, which provides a promising future in terms of better quality and increased data rate for inside users and at the equivalent time reduces the pressure from the outside base stations. Some key emerging technologies have also

been discussed that can be used in 5G wireless systems to fulfill the probable performance desires, like massive MIMO and Device to Device communication in particular and interference management, spectrum sharing with cognitive radio, ultra dense networks, multi radio access technology, full duplex radios, millimeter wave communication and Cloud Technologies in general with radio access networks and software defined networks. This paper may be giving a good platform to motivate the researchers for better outcome of different types of problems in next generation networks.
