Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) means to further improve the performance of user experience on the basis of the existing mobile broadband business scenarios, which is also the application scenario closest to our daily life. eMBB makes it is possible to link massive amounts of things. Massive machine-type communications (mMTC) will be developed in frequencies up to 6 GHz and applied to the large-scale IoE. Currently, the most visible development in this area is the NB-IoT. The existing wireless transmission technologies, such as Wi-Fi, Zigbee, and Bluetooth, belong to a small range of technologies for family use. Ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (URLLC) feature high reliability, low latency, and high availability. It includes the following scenarios and applications: industrial applications and control, traffic safety and control, remote manufacturing, remote training, remote surgery, etc.
