The development of mobile devices and their intensifying use has been overwhelming in the last decade. This has led to evolution of complex mobile networks to cope with the tremendous need for data consumption. Mobile applications and services have become complex and sophisticated to meet end-users expectations such as multimedia communication. 4G mobile communication system is the latest and current technology offering higher data transmission rates than its predecessor 3G. Currently 4G can reach up to 1Gbps. With challenge from ever growing need for data, research has been kicked off for 5G which is expected to offer increased maximum throughput, highly secure system and low battery consumption.
