5G Technology Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)


3GPP is still in process of finishing out 5G/NR Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). These KPIs  are driven from ITM-2020 and  some of these are listed below. These KPIs  mainly consider three broad categories:

  • Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB)
  • Mission Critical Control (MCC)
  • Massive Internet of Things (Massive IoT)
