Congratulations to the following winners of 2016 IEEE Communications Society Chapter Awards!
Chapter-of-the-Year Award Winner
The winner is ... the Malaysia Chapter! This is no small achievement and we applaud the accomplishments that led to their being chosen from among all our ComSoc chapters worldwide. The Malaysia Chapter will receive a plaque/honorarium of $2000, and its chair will attend IEEE GLOBECOM in Washington, DC to be honored during the Awards Luncheon ceremony.
Chapter Achievement Award (CAA) Winners
For years the CAA has been and continues to be awarded to chapters that provide their members with high-level programs and activities. This year’s winning Chapter Achievement Award recipients are:
Asia/Pacific - Malaysia
EMEA - Romania
Latin America - Panama
North America - Ottawa
Each chapter recipient of the CAA receives a plaque and honorarium of $1000. Additionally, those chairs or representatives already planning to attend IEEE GLOBECOM will receive complimentary tickets to the Awards Luncheon and be recognized publicly for their chapter’s achievements.
How to become a winner?
To be considered for these awards, chapter chairs complete the yearly questionnaire which is e-mailed during the first quarter of each year--and which includes a section that provides the Council with information that is the basis for selecting our winners.
Please join us in congratulating these chapters for a “job well done” for the good of their local membership.

Who Should Attend
Plan to attend if you are interested in an end-to-end understanding of NFV, SDN, 5G, IoT, and their technologies, standardization work, roles, roadmap, research areas, and timeline.
Learn about and understand the end-to-end road to 5G, and discover how NFV and SDN are leading the network transformation toward the future of 5G.

“NFV- and SDN-related spend volume is forecast to ramp up in 2017, at which time use cases will be more defined and the cost benefits of using NFV and SDN will be more apparent. This will prompt holdout operators to jump on the bandwagon and aggressively pursue transformation with these technologies to avoid being left behind.”
- according to Chris Antlitz, telecom senior analyst at TBR. Source: NFV and SDN market to hit $158B by 2021.
The present and past Editors-in-Chief of the IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology are proud to present the special paper collection A Third of a Century of Lightwave Technology.This special collection contains the most impactful papers from JLT's third of a century-long history, reflecting on the progress and impact that lightwave technologies have had on society.

5G - Coexistence in a 3G/4G/Satellite World?
5G applications may utilize the crowded sub 6 GHz spectrum, as well as centimeter-wave and millimeter-wave spectrum. Operating in crowded spectrum poses questions such as:
- How will sub 6 GHz candidate 5G waveforms coexist and interact with legacy 3G, 4G, and PAN waveforms?
- Can the 28 GHz frequency band be shared between satellite waveforms and candidate 5G waveforms?
