IEEE Communications Webinar Series: Three Key Challenges for 5G (Part 3 of 3)

This series of IEEE Communication Society webinars will highlight three areas of intense technical interest that require substantial development to make 5G a reality and realize its promises for the Internet of Things.

Developers of 5G are proposing increasingly sophisticated strategies for boosting the carrying capacity of every part of the spectrum. Approaches like beamforming, MIMO (multiple input/multiple output), and allowing devices to choose spectrum and communication protocols will put additional demands on signal processing and traffic routing at the device level. This session will outline the dimensions of the challenge and help attendees understand requirements for hardware and software performance to keep up with the information flow.
