A Variegated Look at 5G in the Wild: Performance, Power, and QoE Implications

Motivated by rapidly expanding deployment of 5G services, we carry out an in-depth study to understand how 5G impacts application performance and energy efficiency. We examine the effects of 5G deployment strategies such as Non-Standalone (NSA) 5G …
