5G and IOT SESSION
CONFERENCE DAY 2 | WEDNESDAY 09 MARCH 2016
|08.00||WELCOME, REGISTRATION AND COFFEE|
|09.00||5G: an Evolution or a Revolution|
|A variety of metrics/objectives are put forward in the technological preparations for 5G networks: higher peak rates, improved coverage with uniform user experience, higher reliability and lower latency, better energy efficiency, lower-cost user devices and services, better scalability with number of devices, etc. These multiple objectives are coupled, often in a conflicting manner such that improvements in one objective lead to degradation in the other objectives. Reviewing the various technologies which can meet these conflicting objectives.
Prof. Merouane Debbah, Supelec
|09.30||Open Software and 5G|
|Presenting 'OpenAirInterface Software Alliance 5G objectives. Free software role in test and prototypes of radio-mobile technologies.
Raymond Knopp, Eurecom
|10.00||RAN Waveforms Design|
|Giving an overview of main research trends for 5G systems with a focus on the physical aspects of the RAN part, especially the waveforms design. The adaptation of already used multi-carrier techniques is discussed and some of them, such as FBMC, GFDM and UFMC are focused on and compared.
Dr. Sanae El Hassani,

Ecole Nationale des Sciences Appliquées - El Jadida
|11.00||Spectrum: Presenting the Cognitive based Software Defined Radio (SDR) Technology|
|Instead of carriers focusing on one “Holy Grail” standard for 5G, one should use a combination of licensed and unlicensed technologies such as Wi-Fi to provide an “always-on experience” for consumers and to take pressure off their existing cellular networks. Discussing the need for a multi-standard approach to wireless mobile communications, as the industry addresses consumers’ insatiable appetites for faster, better, cheaper services.
Richard Edgar, B.E., SMIEE, Director of Communications Technology,
|11.30||5G Tactile Internet|
|The emergence of the Tactile Internet is believed to be a true paradigm shift in which a sufficiently responsive, reliable and intelligent networking paradigm enables delivery of physical, tactile experiences remotely. Describing a holistic view on 5G and how it can be an enabler of the Tactile Internet.
Dr.-Ing. Meryem Simsek, Group Leader, Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems
Research Director for the Internet of Things
|14.00||Research State of the Art in IoT and Broadband for 5G|
|Presenting what 5G aim to achieve and what has been achieved so far in 5GIC research. Covering broadband as well as IoT part of 5G.
Prof. Rahim Tafazolli, 5G Center, Surrey University
|14.30||A Roadmap for 4.5/5 G IoT|
Vice Chairman at LoRa Alliance
|15.00||Radio Technologies for Internet of Things|
|New use cases for IoT and industry verticals is often discussed as key drivers for 5G. These new use cases puts requirements on the new radio technologies such as low power radio for sensors or short latency applications. Discussing how these new radio technologies will evolve and how they will fit new use cases. Also how connect to the core network and different network slices.
