Industry & Standards

The rapid emergence of wireless communications technology has cut the tether that once connected users and their devices to the physical network. Both consumers and business leaders benefit from the rise in mobile computing that the development of the wireless industry allows as it makes the transmission of all types of messages easier and enables real-time communications. Growth within this area will certainly only continue, with developers constantly refining wireless network protocols to enable users to keep up with wireless trends.

The IEEE Communications Society is a leader in wireless communications technologies, bringing together industry practitioners, academics and government officials to share ideas, resolve issues, and learn about the latest developments. Join us in helping to shape the next generation of technology as wireless evolves to 5G and beyond.
