CWIC & CW TEC 2020 - Book now!

Tickets for both conferences are 3 for 2, email events@cambridgewireless.co.uk for more information

23 & 24 September 2020 - CW TEC is now a 2 day virtual event!

The CW Technology & Engineering Conference is a day designed specifically for engineers. Following on from CWIC 2020: At the Edge, CW TEC 2020 will explore the concept of the 5G edge, reviewing the role of edge computing within the broader 5G architecture evolution.

It’s difficult to read about 5G without seeing mention of the "edge" - edge computing, edge cloud, edge services… but what is the edge? Where is the edge? And why is the edge important for 5G?

CW TEC will bring delegates up to speed on the concept of the 5G edge: reviewing the role of edge computing within the broader 5G architecture evolution, exploring what edge brings to infrastructure, and how edge can enable innovative products and services.

The location of the edge will be discussed along with studies of latency in real, operational mobile network environments. The event will provide context to the work in ETSI ISG MEC and explore where multi-access edge computing will sit within future converged fixed and mobile networks.


The annual CW TEC provides a dynamic forum for harnessing knowledge, driving lively debate and networking at a senior level. It offers a more technical and focused agenda than the International Conference, exploring an emerging problem space that the CW community has highlighted as being particularly worthy of debate. Past event topics have included quantum computing and the impact on spectral value of mobile, satellite, TV, IoT and wearable technologies. The conference format and agenda is driven by the CW membership.

CW TEC 2020 will explore the following topics...

CWTEC Latency iconLatency

Reducing network latency is often stated as being a critical requirement of 5G however what should we consider as good and what’s bad? How low does latency need to be and what service level agreements are required on latency? How does the latency target change for different services and how can we architect a flexible network which enables a wide range of services to be supported? This session will explore how we define, build, measure and verify latency performance within networks while also exploring the options available to network architects and designers to reduce end to end network latency.

CWTEC Cloud iconCloud

It’s difficult to read about 5G without seeing mention of the "edge" - edge computing, edge cloud, edge services… But what is the edge? Where is the edge? And why is the edge cloud important for 5G? This session will review the role of edge cloud computing within the broader 5G architecture evolution, exploring what edge cloud brings to infrastructure and how this can offer new and exciting opportunities for use cases which result in innovative products and services. This session will also provide context to the work in ETSI ISG MEC and where multi-access edge computing will sit within future converged fixed and mobile networks.

CWTEC Webscalers iconWebscalers

How can the major web players deliver low latency services? Large international data centres have supported the huge growth of services which are accessed across the public Internet however there’s a price to pay for large centralised facilities, that price is higher network latency. What technical solutions exist for web scale players to reduce network latency and how can they work cooperatively with network operators to deliver low latency services for consumer and enterprise markets? This session will explore these questions and discuss the technical integration options for mass market low latency services such as gaming, augmented reality and virtual reality.
