Abstract : In the last few years, information and communication technology market has been witnessing rapid growth. In future, 5G Service Based Architecture (SBA) with a multitude of key enabling technologies are expected to provide a wide range of services such as rapid emergency response, virtual hospital kiosks, wearable devices, autonomous vehicles, etc. With the proliferation of tiny IoT devices and drones, it is envisioned that the network densification will take place in future 5G networks. This paper provides an overview of location module colocated at the 5G gNodeB (gNB-Base Station) to deliver location information in the dense 5G network. The location module provides opportunities to deliver effective location information from the network side together with popular navigation tools and applications like Google maps. The paper also addresses the design of an example use case and developed proof of concept of Platform as a Service (PaaS) for drone operations in 5G.
