What 5G is and what it isn?t

Speaker:  Faraz Hasan – Palmerston North, New Zealand
Topic(s):  Networks and Communications


This talk introduces the Fifth Generation (5G) of mobile phone technology and addresses a number of relevant technical and non-technical issues. This talk starts with formally defining 5G and drawing comparisons with the existing mobile phone technologies. The range limitation of the high-frequency deployment of 5G is given higher focus, which then leads to a discussion on a number of research and development challenges, for example relaying, user charging, wireless propagation, etc. This talk also covers the public perception of 5G – especially that related to the health implications of this new technology. Addressing the public concerns and making the right pitch to the general population is crucial for enabling a swift uptake of 5G across the world.
This talk will benefit people who are generally interested in understanding the 5G technology. This talk will also benefit researchers and students who wish to explore 5G.
