The 5GIA and 5G PPP projects are actively preparing the MWC (27 February-2 March 2017). Please join the briefing on Tuesday 28th at 2pm!
The members of the 5G-Infrastructure Association (5GIA) invites media and ICT industry analysts to a briefing on the “evolution of European 5G initiatives from Research to Trials” at Mobile World Congress 2017. The event will be held on the 28th of Feb from 14:00 to 15:30 in the Press Conference Room 1, in the Media Village at the MWC in Barcelona.
The European work for the preparation of 5G has been progressing dramatically under the leadership of the 5G-Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP), notably after the launch of the strategic projects of the first phase in 2015. The progress achieved to date will be presented in a new White Paper – “5G innovations for new business opportunities” – which will be issued at the event. The paper identifies recommendations of the EU telecom sector towards harmonized 5G standardisation, spectrum, deployment and regulation from this work.
During the event, Roberto Viola, Director General of DG CONNECT at the European Commission, as well as executives from leading global technology member companies, will discuss the progress being achieved through European 5G Research, the emergence of 5G standards, and prospects for investments in the new infrastructure, while representatives of the vertical industries and the public sector will outline their needs and expectations for 5G. A major discussion point will be technology experiments, validation tests, and eventually field trials as outlined in 5G Action Plan that will be needed between now and 2020 to facilitate the development of 5G. The roadmap for the implementation of advanced pre-commercial trials, to be launched in key sectors in 2018 and to be promoted at EU level, will then be presented, in view of ensuring Europe leadership in the context of the accelerated global agenda for the introduction of 5G.

5G-Crosshaul is organising a panel at MWC 2017 on Tuesday 28 February, 2017 from 11:00 to 12:00 Hall 7 Stand #7C61. Feel free to attend!Looking at various research and standardisation forums leading the development of 5G, such as 5G PPP, NGMN, 3GPPP, IEEE, ITU, IETF, ETSI, etc., all seem to align on the vision that the fronthaul and backhaul will converge or fuse in 5G into what is now popularly refreed to as Crosshaul or Xhaul. So what requirements are driving quch a fusion in 5G? Which enabling technologies could make it happen? Where are ther remaining gaps and what is the industry doing to make ot happen? And when are we going to see it?Featuring leading experts in the industry, this panel aims at discussing the Crosshaul (Xhaul) topic from the various angles of requirements, architecture, enabling technologies, standardization, and market development.The panel will be moderated by Alan Carlton, Vice-President of International Labs at InterDigital (UK). Panelists include: Antonella Sanguineti (Ericsson), Arturo Azcorra (5TONIC), Diego Lopez (Telefonica), Li Fung Chang (Taiwan’s 5G-Office), and Theodore Sizer (Nokia).
5G-Crosshaul will also demonstrate its solution over InterDigital’s EDGELINKTM platform, featuring demanding low-latency traffic from a remote surgery application at the InterDigital stand (Hall 7 Stand #7C61) from Monday 27 Feb. to Thursday 2 March.
CTTC will show a SDN- based management of a heterogeneous wireless Crosshaul, featuring automated technology and link selection over 802.11ac/ad links at CTTC stand (Hall 8.1 stand #8.1A63) from Monday 27 Feb. to Thursday 2 March.
Alan Carlton (InterDigital) and Diego Lopez (Telefonica) will be keynote speakers at the “NFV: A Re-examination” session, hall 4 Auditorium 3 on Tuesday 28 Feb. 2017 from 15:30 to 16:40 featuring 5G-Crosshaul project as an exemplary use case.
Bob Gazda (InterDigital) will be keynote speaker at the “5G Impact” session, hall 4 Auditorium 5 on Thursday 2 March 2017, from 11:30 to 13:00 featuring video demonstration of 5G-Crosshaul solution with a remote surgery application.
SESAME will showcase a demo at MWC 2017. It will be a joint demo between ITALTEL and Virtual Open Systems.To share the latest innovations achieved, visit the ITALTELbooth #2G10 (Hall 2), a selection of major and innovative solutions in relation to the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data & Analytics and Cloud will be presented.
5G-ENSURE partner b<>com will be there. The Institute of Research and Technology b<>com will showcase the results of its research on more agile ultra-high speed networks in its booth Hall 8.0 Stand #8.0F17 .
Join b<>com and 5G-ENSURE in the booth and get your personal copy of the “5G innovations for new business opportunities” brochure and a lot of interesting flyers.

mmMAGIC @2nd International workshop on mmw5G
San Francisco, USA- March 19
mmMAGIC is organising the 2nd International Workshop on Millimeter Wave-Based Integrated Mobile Communications for 5G Networks (mmW5G) on March 19, 2017 in San Francisco (USA). The workshop is co-located with IEEE WCNC 2017 (19-22 March 2017).
This workshop will bring together the leading names in industry, academia and research institutes to discuss and debate the latest developments in this area. It offers a unique opportunity for researchers in this field to disseminate their results in all areas of mm-wave communications to a diverse audience. The workshop invites authors to submit original and previously un-published research papers in the following and related topics:
Mm-wave channel sounding and modeling
Antenna design and characterization
Advanced multiple antenna systems (including massive MIMO)
Mm-wave beamforming techniques (Hybrid, Analog and Digital)
Efficient transceiver architectures and design
Advanced transceiver schemes for access, backhaul and self-backhaul
Novel channel estimation techniques considering the channel sparsity
Robust transceiver design taking into account hardware impairments and CSI imperfections
Multi-node/multi-beam coordination and cooperation at mm-wave frequencies
Coverage analysis of ultra-dense mm-wave networks
Mobility handling schemes in mm-wave networks
Mm-wave channel modelling and measurements
Mm-wave air interface and waveform candidates
Mm-wave prototyping efforts
Network architecture aspects (stand-alone, non-stand-alone) for mm-wave systems
Network slicing, virtualization and flexible RAN design
System integration and deployment considerations
Registration is open for both days, here. For additional information on the event, please contact David Gutierrez Estevez, Samsung Electronics.
