Topic: Wireless Communications 2021: An Industry Update

Abstract: The wireless industry is currently undergoing the biggest evolution in the last 10 years with the development and deployment of 5G.  But 5G is not the only new technology emerging.  New standards like ORAN and WiFi6 are also disrupting the entire ecosystem.  Add the infrastructure pressures brought on by the global pandemic and a shift to work from home, and it’s easy to say that this is one of the most exciting times in history to be a wireless engineer.  This presentation will give an overview of where the industry is in the 5G roll out, what is coming next for 5G, what ORAN is and how it’s changing our networks, where WiFi6 fits into the picture, and what areas lead researchers are starting to explore for 6G.
