‘5G: A Practical Approach’ – Radio Technology SIG & Small Cell SIG event - London

Start date/time :  12:00 3rd February 2015
End date/time :  17:30 3rd February 2015
Venue :  Deloitte - Stonecutter Court, 1 Stonecutter St, London EC4A 4TR London

5G may yet be undefined but that does not stop the industry from trying to sell anything and everything as 5G. It is clear that 5G will not be a single “solution” providing a miracle cure for all ills of our industry, but it has the long term ambition to deliver significant improvements on all core KPIs compared to the 4G baseline. Confirmed speakers for this popular London event include Mark Bailey of Rohde & Schwarz, Zahid Ghadialy of eXplanoTech, Alain Mourad of InterDigital, Moray Rumney of Keysight Technologies, Egon Schulz of Huawei and Jorgen Trank of Tieto.


On one hand NEMs and MNO driven industry initiatives are attempting to consolidate the requirements and quantify the 5G KPIs via uses cases analysis, on the other industry and academia are researching candidate technologies for the “solution” of specific dimensions of the problem.

At this stage there is not yet much clarity on the practical feasibility of some of the candidate technologies slated for 5G, nor how the integration of these candidate technologies is going to provide the overall “5G answer”. This half day event jointly organised by the Radio technology and Small Cells SIG aims to shed some light on the practical implications of 5G competing candidate technologies.

As the first in a series, the event will take the perspective of practical results, applied research and engineering. Through these perspectives the options for network densification, Interference management, and Energy Efficiency between various radio technologies, and the degree to which the technologies can inter-operate will be explored.

Confirmed speakers include:

The Radio Technology SIG is championed by Brian Collins of BSC Associates, Diego Giancola of PA Consulting Group, John Haine of u-blox AG and Gerald Miaille of CSR. We are very grateful to Microlease & Keysight  and Rohde & Schwarz for sponsoring the event.
