5G New Radio

Share

Our own Communications Society Chapter here in Atlanta, GA presents the 2nd Virtual Talk for 2020 which will be a technical presentation on "5G New Radio" given by Mr. William Lawton at Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). Please see the presentation Abstract below. This event will be held on August 31st, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. EST/12:00 p.m. CDT/11:00 a.m. MT/10:00 a.m. PST. Please register using the link below.

Presentation Abstract

In this presentation, I am going to present an overview of 5G New Radio (NR) including the 5G Core and Radio Access Network as well as a historical perspective on cellular capabilities evolving from 2G, 3G and 4G. 5G NR features and capabilities to be covered include Release 15 and Release 16 as well as some expectations for Release 17. The overview will include aspects of the Physical Layer up through the protocol stack.  Certain system features such as Network Slicing, Integrated Access and Backhaul, Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) and Ultra-Reliable and Low-Latency Communication (URLLC).  Physical layer aspects including Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFMDA), adaptive modulation and coding and beamforming / beamtracking will also be covered.  Additionally, the greatly increased operating bands (including millimeter-wave) and associated numerologies will be discussed.

Biography:

William Edward Lawton received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the University of Florida in 1998 and 2005, respectively, with specializations including Wireless Communications and Digital Signal Processing.  William contributed to the development of the powerline technology underlying the first generation for the HomePlug Powerline Alliance while working with Intellon (acquired by Atheros in 2009; acquired by Qualcomm in 2011). Prior to joining Georgia Institute of Technology in 2020, William spent 17 years with InterDigital Communications developing commercial cellular technologies, solutions and standards for UMTS, LTE and 5G New Radio (NR). He has received seven patents related to his powerline and cellular wireless innovations. William is currently the Chief of the Communication Systems and Spectrum Division (CSSD) of the Information and Communications Lab (ICL) at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) researching and developing leading-edge communications and spectrum sensing solutions and platforms.
