On Combinatorial Models of Generations of Wireless Communication Systems


In this paper, the following issues are considered: (i) a brief review of wireless mobile technologies including their evolution (1G, 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, and 6G system generations), (ii) the use of hierarchical combinatorial models for the description of wireless communication system generations, and (iii) the use of a twostage modular method for improving (predicting) the version of the 5G wireless system generation (based on the block pack problem). The presented examples illustrate the proposed approaches to modeling and improvemen of wireless communication systems.
