|Over the past two months, there has been a significant increase in public interest and awareness of 5G—Fifth Generation cellular technology—and its potential impact across multiple sectors of our society, including commerce, education, health care, and agriculture.
For many of us who actively pursue research and development work in next generation communication systems and networks (MIMO, cognitive radio, millimeter wave, vehicular communications, Internet of Things, and numerous other relevant technologies), 5G is something that we are all aware of, given the plethora of impactful journal publications, conference papers, presentations, tutorials, and other activities focusing on this subject over the past decade.
On the other hand, the recent advent of 5G into the global public consciousness, especially via mainstream media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, has put this diverse collection of cutting-edge technologies and its impact on humanity on center stage. As a result, these are exciting times to work in the 5G and future networks domain!
With the aim of supporting worldwide interest in 5G technologies and future networks, IEEE VTS has been working with the IEEE Future Networks Initiative (IEEE FNI) to provide an excellent suite of resources offering the latest insights and knowledge about advances in future networks and 5G technologies. Here are just a few of the many resources available from IEEE VTS:
High-quality peer-reviewed content on 5G and future networks
Both the IEEE Transactions in Vehicular Technology and the IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine feature a range of special issues, including IEEE TVT’s recent Special Issue on Vehicle Connectivity and Automation using 5G Networks and the fifth edition of the IEEE VTM’s IEEE 5G Initiatives Special Issue on 5G Technologies and Applications.
Technical papers, tutorials, workshops, panels…
And other activities specifically focused on 5G technologies and future networks are readily available from IEEE VTS conferences such as our flagship IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (IEEE VTC) series, including VTC2019-Spring in Kuala Lumpur and VTC2019-Fall in Hawaii. Plus, the Workshop on Technology Trials and Proof-of-Concept Activities for 5G Evolution & Beyond 2019 (TPoC5GE 2019) will take place at both these events!
Several lecture videos on 5G and future networks online
Visit the VTS Resource Center and check out the latest insights on future networks and 5G by world-class experts in this emerging area.
