Event description

The IEEE SB UoWM, in collaboration with John Vardakas (Senior Researcher, Iquadrat Informatica S.L.), organizes a Lecture on 5G Network Infrastructures based on Fiber-Wireless Convergence Architectures (FiWi), research challenges and application development.

The lecture will take place on Wednesday 13/12/2017 at 17:00 – 19:00, Classroom C at the UoWM Icte.

We are waiting for you!

More about the event:
5G networks are coming and should be able to provide access to information whenever the mobile users need it, where they need it, in whatever format they need it, while at the same time reducing the ever increasing carbon emission footprint of mobile communications. The rapid increase of mobile devices, wireless connections and the emerging Internet services related to applications with very diverse communication requirements (e.g., smart grid, smart cities), raised the need of higher capacity and more energy efficient networks with improved coverage capabilities. To this end, various technologies in the access domain, such as millimeter wave (mmWave) communications and massive MIMO (mMIMO) antennas are able to tackle the demanding requirements for the next generation mobile network infrastructure. However, high capacity and low latency fraunthaul/backhaul solutions are essential components of the future network infrastructure. In this Talk, we will firstly discuss the objectives and challenges of 5G networks, and, secondly, we present the basic network components that target to meet the pressing 5G demands. Moreover, in this talk we will present the research efforts towards the deployment of converged Fiber-Wireless (FiWi) solutions that have been considered as efficient fraunthaul approaches, followed by the presentation of testbeds and use-case deployments that target to facilitate Gbps-enabled data transport.
