Interference poses to be a grave threat to wireless communication systems. Quest for higher data rate and higher energy efficiency has led to a paradigm shift. Since the inception of cellular technology in 1980, researchers are in search of a communication system which can exhibit high data rate, low latency, higher capacity, energy efficiency and spectrum efficiency. This led the researchers to explore 5G, operating in mmWave band (30–300 GHz) which is expected to support uncompressed video streaming, 3D telepresence, holographic communication and other multimedia applications. But all these technological advances suffer from a foe, i.e., cross-channel interference and co-channel interference. Thus, this paper chronologically discusses the various models applied to minimize or eradicate the problem of interference in 5G communication systems. Future research directions have also been discussed.
