The process of learning, our way of working, thinking and interaction has all changed due to the internet supported by world wide mobile revolution. Currently the 4G’s concept is marching towards the standardization phase. So time has come to introduce a new technology in which we can connect to multiple wireless technologies, networks, terminals and applications, all simultaneously and can also switch between them. This latest technology is named as 5G. 5G (5th generation mobile networks or 5th generation wireless systems) is a term used in some research papers and projects to denote the next major phase of mobile telecommunications standards beyond the current 4G/IMT- Advanced standards. 5G is considered as beyond 2020 mobile communications technologies. This upcoming technology will support IPv6 and flat IP. This paper addresses an overall description of the 5G systems and its architecture, standard, benefits, challenges in deployment, Security issues and scope of 5G technologies. This paper will also focus the researches being made on worldwide wireless web (WWWW), Dynamic Adhoc Wireless Network (DAWN) and real wireless world.
