  • WHO: Dr. Ghobad Heidari, Dr. Behzad Mohebbi, Dr. Gang Ding, David Snyder & Onno Janssen

    In this IEEE SECON 2017 panel discussion, five distinguished wireless industry veterans present their views on 5G technology promises and shed light on the challenges we will be facing to achieve them.

    The panel is lead by Dr. Ghobad Heidari, who has over 20 years of research, development, IP analysis, and management experience. His expertise areas include wireless communication systems and standards, medical applications, consumer electronics, satellite communications, and embedded systems.

  • WHAT: 5G and New Communication Technologies Panel

    During this panel discussion moderated by D. Heidari, we explored the broadly focused topic of 5G and new communication technologies.

    There is a great momentum in the wireless industry towards defining and designing the wireless communication systems and networks of the next decade. The impetus for this momentum is the emergence of a vast set of new, mostly data-driven applications and use cases involving mobile sensing and communication as well as ubiquitous and pervasive computing. An example is the surge in applications and services envisaged for Internet of Things (IoT).
    Various wireless standards bodies and industry interest groups are preparing their next generation of technologies to be able to support such applications/services. Fifth generation (5G) mobile communication standards, for instance, are aiming at achieving higher capacity/density, higher throughput, higher reliability, lower latency, and lower power consumption. Other standards are following similar suits.
    The gamut of next generation wireless technologies that are being devised is as wide as the frequency spectrum used for such technologies. From radio frequency to visible light communication, there are exciting technological developments that promise to dramatically change the shape of our future wireless communications.

    The panel discussion started with short technical presentations by each of the panelists, followed by a question and answer segment.
