The Internet of Things envisages over 5 billion connected devices, that will spur the growth in mobile data traffic to rise exponentially with current predictions suggesting a 1000x increase over the next decade. This foreseen market growth has urged mobile operators to examine new ways to plan, deploy and manage their networks for improving coverage, boosting their network’s capacity, and reducing their capital and operating expenditures (CAPEX and OPEX). To provide a solution towards meeting new and evermore stringent end-user requirements, mobile stakeholders are already preparing the technology roadmap for next generation networks expected to be deployed by 2020 and beyond, which is collectively referred to as "5G". 5G has a broad vision and envisages design targets that include, 10-100x peak rate date rate, 1000x network capacity, 10x energy efficiency, and 10-30x lower latency. This workshop, inspired by the GREEN-T research initiative will bring together academic and industrial stakeholders to identify and discuss technical challenges, as well a venue for disseminating innovative solutions towards meeting the 1000x challenge. These technologies will encompass all aspects of the radio access network and applications: from wireless network infrastructure and topologies, to physical layer transmission techniques, including spectrum availability, channel modeling, device innovations and green radio.
