The 5G wireless communication system will be the next generation of mobile communications beyond 2020. 5G now is still in the exploration stage. There are some shortcomings in LTE and LTE-Advanced, such as strict synchronism, high latency with increasing number of connections, high energy consumption, and thus provides great challenges for its implementation in Internet of Things. The deployment of ultra-dense small cell networks or 5th gen networks provides unmatched opportunities to create an advanced system that meets the demands of future services, consumers, industries and paves way for further innovations. In this paper is discussed the architecture, standards and researches which would shape up the 5G wireless communication networks of the 2020s.
