The abbreviation eMBB stands for Enhanced Mobile Broadband. 4G networks already make use of it in a rudimentary form. It is the first step to make the transition towards the IMT-2020 standard (5G).
eMBB allow high data transmission rates, such as the streaming of high-resolution videos, AR/VR or online gaming. Under the hood MIMO antennas, Network Slicing using software and high frequency ranges enable this service.
The consumer market in the area of multimedia and professional applications such as mobile working or networked computing as well as verticals such as industry 4.0 or new work are beneficiaries of eMBB . As one of the first phases of the 5G rollout it is standardised in the 3GPP Release 15.
