The IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc) community in Bangalore has, of late, led a series of workshops related to 5G technology research and development. The series was first conceived in Nov 2013 with a two day workshop on LTE and Beyond 4G. Since then, one or more events have been conducted every year focused on 5G. The workshop series has been very popular with tremendous support from both industry and academia. Recently, the 10th workshop in the series was completed to discuss various aspects of emerging directions in 5G research to increase awareness and to motivate original contributions from India in the 5G area.
This summit will illustrate innovations to be made by and within 5G networks including in the areas of smart cities and industries, artificial intelligence and machine learning, the evolution of medium access control (MAC) protocols from 4G-Advanced to 5G, and impacts on operations support systems/business support systems (OSS/BSS.)
