  Speakers

Dr. Vijay K. Bhargava Dr. Vijay K. Bhargava of University of British Columbia

Topic:

Wireless Communications Evolution: From 0G to 5G and Beyond 5G

We first provide a brief historical evolution of wireless communications from fixed microwave and satellite communication (0G) to cellular telephony starting with 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G and to 5G.

Key attributes of 5G will be discussed. 5G is revolutionary in that it goes beyond mobile access (people) to machines and systems. 5G is rolling out faster than any previous generation and represents a huge opportunity for communication service providers.

The talk will conclude with a discussion on beyond 5G which is likely to include AI (Machine Learning) enabled wireless systems, cloudification, spectrum sharing, radar technology wireless systems for sensing, terahertz communication and address massive connectivity in communication system and more.

Time permitting we will touch upon research that has started on 6G. While the 6G standard is years away, we need to come up with the technology now. Of course, we have to keep in mind what Yogi Berra said: It is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future.
