IEEE 5G-IoT Summit Hammamet

Colocated with the

International Symposium on Ubiquitous Networking (UNet'18)

As Internet usages are proliferating, communications networks are faced with new shortcomings. Future networks will have to support in 2020 mobile traffic volumes 1000 times larger than today and a spectrum crunch is anticipated. Wireless access rates are today significantly lower than those of fixed access, which prevents the emergence of ubiquitous low cost integrated access continuum with context independent operational characteristics. Communication networks energy consumption is growing rapidly, especially in the radio part of mobile networks. The proliferation of connected devices makes it very difficult to maintain similar performance characteristics over an ever larger portfolio of technologies and requirements (i.e.Ultra High Definition TV vs. M2M, IoT). Heterogeneity of access technologies entails unsustainable cost with increasing difficulties to integrate an ever larger set of resources with reduced OPEX. Network infrastructure openness is still limited. It prevents the emergence of integrated OTT (cloud)-network integration with predictable end to end performance characteristics, and limits the possibility for networks to become programmable infrastructures for innovation with functionalities exposed to developers’ communities.

This 5G SUMMIT focuses on exploring and elucidating all facets of the next generation of 5G technology, business and societal gaps and challenges between the current 3G-4G-LTE access-only Internet models and the proper vision of 5G, evolutionary or revolutionary, to go beyond just access by embracing and facilitating the upfront integration of all new technologies (IOT, SDN/NFV, Cloud Computing, ..) to be user-transparent, app-oriented, service-ready, ubiquitous and lowest cost.

Some of the worldwide 5G experts have been invited and attracted to share their state-of-the-art knowledge with the emerging 5G community in Morocco and around the world in view of facilitating the worldwide harmonization of research and best practices for deployment of viable user scenarios in the global 5G ecosystem, the built-in security and privacy by design in 5G, and explore the different ways to enable Internet protocols over the next generation of empowered devices in order to reach convergence and end to end transparency led by the IEEE 5G Technical subCommittee which is supporting technically this event.
