Event description


Morning Session: Path to 5G


This seminar session introduces 5G concepts and principles based on the design goals and visions from standards organizations, regulatory bodies and leading vendors. The course presents various service provision mechanisms required to enable new and varied use cases and verticals, (such as Cellular IoT, Mission Critical Control, Automotive, Entertainment and Media), and details the physical and logical architecture options that are currently being specified to support these. Virtualization, dynamic resource optimization and performance management are all discussed, including Cloud RAN, Core and Edge options. The course also presents the evolution of radio techniques and waveforms, including developments in multiple access, multi-RAT, TDD and MIMO technologies.
