5G is the next-generation mobile network, and it has been developed with the purpose of covering the network requirements of today, and the future. 5G has the goal to make network connectivity more accessible, faster, energy efficient, and reliable, all while significatively reducing latency and enabling a denser network capable of handling both consumer mobile devices and massive machine-type communications and leaving space for future innovations. With such an ambitious goal, there come many obstacles and challenges that the industry must face when it comes to the proper implementation of this technology so that it can reach its potential. In this article we will discuss some of the emerging technologies in 5G, presenting an introductory overview of them as well as their benefits, the challenges these present, along with their proposed solutions gathered from recent academic sources.
