Stay Ahead of the Game. ComSoc Training Introduces New Course on the Tactile Internet

Stay Ahead of the Game. ComSoc Training Introduces New Course on the Tactile Internet
 
A big step lies ahead when moving from today’s 4G cellular networks to tomorrow’s 5G network. Today the network is used for content delivery. Tomorrow, the 5G network will provide a ubiquitous Tactile Internet infrastructure for controlling and steering real and virtual objects, which requires latency and resilience to be met by designing networks along new paradigms. The resulting Tactile Internet will shape our future and our society, touching almost every part of life.
 
Taught by Frank Fitzek, wireless and mobile 5G communication networks expert, and Gerhard Fettweis, Co-Chair of the IEEE 5G Initiative and original creator of the concept of Tactile Internet, this new course will introduce both the requirements and the technical solutions that enable the Tactile Internet, presenting a holistic understanding of 5G technologies.

Real-time Prototyping of 5G Software Defined Networks

Real-time Prototyping of 5G Software Defined Networks

Join us for a live webinar!
 
 
Software defined networks (SDN) have been identified as an enabling technology for future 5G wireless networks.  And while the promises of SDNs are great and many, further experimental studies must be performed to better understand the challenges and limitations associated with the development of such systems at all levels of the communication stack. With a deeper understanding of the implementation challenges and problems, researchers can then begin to create novel solutions that go beyond just computer-based simulations to fully functional real-time prototypes that operate under real-world wireless channel conditions.
 
In this webinar, attendees will learn more about the National Instruments MAC/PHY prototyping system which includes a flexible hardware and software reference architecture complete with a real-time and fully modifiable upper layer stack and PHY layer that enables wireless researchers to rapidly prototype SDNs that communicate over real-world wireless channels.

Register for Complimentary Access to the Upcoming 2017 Brooklyn 5G Summit Live Streaming Video

The 2017 Brooklyn 5G Summit live video streaming will be held on 20-21 April. This summit will present and discuss trends aimed at discovering “what´s working and what´s not”, and the best approaches in overcoming the challenges of making 5G a commercial reality. Discussions will be centered around many cutting edge themes, including 5G radio system design, novel concepts and accomplishments in providing enhanced broadband, massive machine mission-critical communications and programmable networks.

Themed “5G: How close are we to reality?,” the fourth annual Brooklyn 5G Summit will cover overall 5G end-to-end system design across the entire spectrum range, 5G regulatory aspects and 5G pre-commercial systems. Discussions will also focus on various use cases for 5G in the evolving Internet of Things (IoT) space by inviting selected start-up companies to share their work in multiple areas. 

Join us from anywhere in the world to watch the entire summit right from your screen. Register now for Free Live Stream Access, thanks to the support of National Instruments.
