Conference ““The New Paradigm of 5G Communications and its Future Evolutions” | 7 January | 18:30 | online

7 Jan 2021 - 18:30

This conference provides an insight into the Fifth Generation of Cellular Communications (5G) and its future evolutions. It presents the current 5G transmission techniques and those expected in future developments, namely on the Non Orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA) method, in addition to Massive MIMO Systems and Millimeter waves. An introduction is also made to the Sixth Generation of Cellular Communications (6G), and to the expected associated transmission techniques. The insertion of 5G and 6G in the framework of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is addressed in this conference. Consisting of a paradigm shift, when compared to previous generations, 5G supports a myriad of new services based on the Internet of Things (IoT) and Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications (V2V), supporting autonomous vehicles, Smart Cities, Smart Homes, surgeries remotes, etc. While 5G plays an important role in the initial implementation of the 4th Industrial Revolution, 6G will address a number of new services such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, holographic services, advanced Internet of Things, Wireless Brain-Computer Interaction and mobility at higher speeds. .
