Wireless data increasingly plays a key role in every aspect of our lives, and there is growing industry consensus that by 2020, networks can expect a 1,000-fold increase in mobile data traffic.  What is beyond 4G?  New and innovative approaches to solve these challenges include 5G waveforms, network densification, massive MIMO, and mmWave communications.  Find out how wireless researchers in academia and industry are framing the future of wireless communications with 5G technologies.  This session includes an overview of some of these technologies, their progress, and their potential to address 5G requirements.

Why Attend?
  • Gain exposure to the latest approaches in wireless research to solve the challenges of next generation 5G wireless communications
  • Learn how top researchers in academia and industry are working together to frame the future of wireless communications
  • Explore how a system design approach can be applied from engineering education to advanced research to solve the next challenges in wireless communications
  • Find out how engineers are reducing the time from theory to results by testing their results in a real-world environment
