5G is anticipated to be a significant leap in the evolution of mobile communication. Being designed to facilitate 10 to 100 times more capacity than 4G, 5G is considered to be the most cost-efficient solution to provide Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) to households on a large scale where providing last mile access using wired solution might not be economically viable. With a range of promises to deliver user experience improvements, facilitating cost-efficient data transportation between FWA users and network core still remains an unsolved issue, given the enormous volume of data that will be traversing the superior 5G network. This work addresses this compelling problem by formulating a joint-o..View full abstract
