The objective of this book is to present, elaborate and assess, with respect to the impact of critical parameters, the most promising system concepts, architectures, and technology enablers that are expected to play a differentiator's role in the realization and adoption of 5G. To this end, 10 promising advanced technology topics are investigated in the following corresponding book chapters (Chapters 2-11), each describing a 5G innovation that is expected to transform wireless design understanding. A new era is commencing, following “technology-driven,”“user-centric,”and “Everything-as-a-Service”eras: the era of “Connectivity-as-a-Utility.”More specifically, the book chapters are organized into three thematic entities.
