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:
- Mark Bailey, Application Development of Rohde & Schwarz
- Zahid Ghadialy, Managing Director of eXplanoTech
- Alain Mourad, Wireless Expert, InterDigital Europe
- Moray Rumney, Lead Technologist of Keysight Technologies
- Egon Schulz, Director, Wireless Innovation Centre of Huawei
- Jorgen Trank, Product Manager, Tieto
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.
