5G Wave at IMS2017 _ Highlights from the Symposium ... The IEEE 5G Summit at IMS2017 is part of a special collaboration that complements IEEE MTT-S's "hardware and systems" focus with IEEE Communications Society's "networking and services" focus. Speakers for the 5G Executive Forum will share their "inside" view of the emerging 5G market and include industry experts from Intel Labs, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Escape Communications, Kwikbit, and Keysight Technologies.
•Practical hands-on training and exhibitor interactions: Education, information, and products that attendees can immediately learn and apply, boosting their productivity. Special features include Fireside Chats in the 5G Pavilion, RF Boot Camp, new Exhibitor Workshops, MicroApps, dedicated Exhibit-Only time on June 7, and "Pau Hana with the Pros".
•Keynote speakers: Experts from NTT DOCOMO, University of California, San Diego, Huawei, and the FCC will weigh in on all aspects of the 5G market, from transceivers and radios to deployment and public policy.
•"Focusing on 5G at IMS2017 is a natural fit as Hawai'i is home to a significant milestone in wireless technology," said Wayne Shiroma, IMS2017 General Chair. "In 1971, researchers at the University of Hawai'i unveiled the pioneering computer networking system called ALOHAnet, becoming the first to connect computers via radio communications and introducing the computing world to random access protocols. Today, this random access technology is everywhere – in Wi-Fi, mobile phones, Ethernet, and cable, and continues to evolve as a result of the research presented at IMS2017."
