5G networks are the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, that are able to offer vastly increased speeds, more reliable connections, minimal latency and more supported devices. 5G networks are expected to supercharge Internet of Things (IoT) technology, so as to provide the infrastructure needed in order to support and transfer large data amounts that will enable a smarter and more connected world. To this direction, 5G incorporates many technologies and mechanisms that aid towards the overall goal, such as Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO), Downlink (DL) and Uplink (UL) Decoupling (DUDe) and Machine Learning (ML). These technologies can significantly help towards more efficient resource allocation inside the next generation networks, offering increased spectral efficiency and data rates, better signal coverage, reduced latencies and many more. In this chapter, we will provide insights over the aforementioned technologies through firstly a literature review and later on by analyzing their architecture and their models. We will explain how these technologies can be taken advantage of in order to support the 5G networks and why they are core components of future networks, as it is expected that also 5G and Beyond networks will capitalize on them.
