Prototyping 5th Generation Cellular Wireless Technology

  • Monday, 12 June 2017, 9:00-12:30, Room Saalastinsali
  • Organiser:

    • Markus Mueck, Michael Faerber, Valerio Frascolla (INTEL, Germany)
    • Sylvie Mayrargue (CEA-LETI, France )


    Motivation and Background

    This Workshop is co-organized by four collaborative research funded projects targeting Olympic events: the EU-funded Flex5GWare and MiWaveS as well as the EU-Korea co-funded 5G CHAMPION, and the EU-Japan co-funded 5G-MiEdge. This collaboration gathers massive competence and knowledge in the field of 5G technology and related prototyping and benefits from complementary contributions: Flex5Gware’s contributions related to a prototying and testing ecosystem including highly reconfigurable hardware (HW) platforms together with HW-agnostic software (SW) platforms targeting both network elements and devices and taking into account increased capacity, reduced energy footprint, as well as scalability and modularity, to enable a smooth transition from 4G mobile wireless systems to 5G. MiWaveS contributes with specific competence on mmWave RF technology which was obtained through demonstratation activities in the field of low-cost and advanced millimetre-wave (mmW) technologies providing multi-Gigabits per second access to mobile users and contribute to sustain the traffic growth. The 5G CHAMPION consortium will report of their respective activities for setting up a fully functional prototype for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games in Korea, i.e. two years ahead of 2020, the official launch of 5G with a specific focus on direct mobile device-satellite communication and other 5G enabling technologies. Members of the 5G-MiEdge consortium the activities targeted at the preparation for the Tokyo olympic games in Japan in 2020. When deployment of new technologies is in focus, the interoperabilitiy question and the consideration of geographical-area specific issues are key elements for a successful introduction of a new technology.

    This Workshop is going to assemble a team of global experts in order to discuss learnings from first generation 5G prototype implementation and trials, to address 5G related challenges, drawbacks and strengths identified within those activities and to thus analyze gaps to be filled in order to make 5G a success. Furthermore, the Special Session looks ahead towards the next stage of 5G technology, showcasing how new enabling functionalities are tested in lab set-ups and how they are deployed in the field for early stage trials. One example relates to direct mobile device to satellite communication in order to provide access where no terrestrial infrastructure is available or out of service.
