Spectrum crunch below 6GHz? 5G research trends in Europe

Spectrum crunch below 6GHz? 5G trends
Moderator: Dr. Dominique Noguet, CEA-LETI, France
5G is expected to address a 1000x capacity compared to today’s networks, whereas available spectrum resource will, by far, not grow in the same proportion, enabling only a few new portions or frequency bands. In particular, spectrum below 6GHz will be under pressure as the most demanded one. New technologies will have to be researched and tested in order to exploit this scarce and already crowded spectrum. Solutions range from radio and network technologies to new regulation policies or regimes. Besides, the convergence of cellular systems with the Internet of Things and machine-to-machine communications will require a new technology bundle in order to enable a flexible service delivery over flexible networks to optimize spectrum usage and power consumption. The European 5G Public Private Partnership (5GPPP) projects will tackle these challenges from various angles. In this panel, key experts from recently approved 5GPPP projects will present and debate their approaches.
The panel will be composed as follows: Oscar Carrasco (SISTELBANDA), representing SPEED-5G Marja Matimikko (VTT), representing COHERET Gerhard Wunder (FhG), representing FANTASTIC-5G Du Ho Kang (ERICSSON), representing METIS II
