29)

Do you consider that a 5G network will have be a self organizing network (SON) will replace traditional network planning practice?

30)

Do you believe that it should be targeted for virtual MIMO (joint processing of signals to/from different radio heads) or massive MIMO (large antenna arrays at each radio head), or both?

31)

What technologies are most promising for beam-forming, beam-steering, beam-switching at mm-wave frequencies?

32)

What are the limitations you see to the possibilities of the beam forming technologies?
