IEEE 5G calls on industry, technologists, governments and academia across nations to collaborate, pursue consensus

IEEE, the world´s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, has announced that the Technology Roadmap Working Group of the IEEE 5G Initiative has released its IEEE 5G and Beyond Technology Roadmap White Paper summarizing the challenges and opportunities in building and sustaining a 5G and beyond ecosystem, the company said.

At the same time, IEEE 5G is calling the world´s operators, regulators, manufacturers, researchers and interested parties to come together in developing the 5G and beyond ecosystem with the IEEE 5G and Beyond Technology Roadmap Working Group: 5groadmapinfo@ieee.org. All stakeholders will benefit from a common perspective to address the needs and challenges faced in the evolution to the future state.

The IEEE 5G and Beyond Technology Roadmap White Paper outlines the current telecommunications value chain that will have to adapt to the changes and opportunities the introduction of 5G and beyond technologies will bring. It describes key technology trends that will impact design drivers and challenges for technologies to provide simultaneous wireless communication, massive connectivity, tactile Internet, quality of service and network slicing.

Some topics addressed are: applications and services, hardware, MIMO, mm-wave, edge automation platform, security, standardization building blocks and testbed. The white paper is available for download at no cost on the IEEE 5G web portal´s Roadmap page. The IEEE 5G and Beyond Technology Roadmap will be periodically updated with forecasts for three-, five- and 10-year horizons.
