We would like to bring your attention to a forthcoming CommNet2 workshop focusing on the latest advances on 5G-Air interface. Championed by Professor Rahim Tafazolli and Dr. Konstantinos Nikitopoulos from the University of Surrey, this free 1 day event will be based at Surrey’s Institute for Communications Systems (ICS), home of the 5G Innovation Centre on 22nd February 2017.
There is a general consensus that 5G wireless systems and beyond shall support a diverse set of services and communications types, including extreme Mobile Broadband, ultra-relievable Machine-Type-Communications, as well as massive-Machine Type-Communications. In addition, future air-interfaces shall support a plethora of heterogeneous and diverse applications from “virtual reality office” to “real-time remote computing” imposing a set of very challenging, and sometimes contradicting, requirements. Such requirements have been reported to include traffic volumes of up to 750Gbps/km2, experienced end-user throughput values of several hundreds of Mbp, ultra-low latency below ms latency and reliability values of 99.999%.
We have an excellent line up of speakers including Professor Lajos Hanzo (University of Southampton), Professor John Thompson (University of Edinburgh), Professor Arumugam Nallanathan (King’s College London), Professor Mark Beach (University of Bristol), Professor Tim O’Farrell (University of Sheffield), Professor Izzat Darwazeh, University College London, and from the University of Surrey, Dr Konstantinos Nikitopoulos, Dr Yi Ma and Dr Lei Zhang.
