    Session 1: Plenary I

    Tuesday May 17, 2016 9:00 AM - Tuesday May 17, 2016 10:00 AM

    Chair: Celicia Della-Morrow, Qorvo

    Since the introduction of the first mobile phone by Motorola in 1973, the wireless industry has strived to improve. Wireless communications (in the words of Dr. Peter Gammel) is now part of the fabric of society and the standard by which all business functions. Advancements to our current 4G wireless infrastructure continue to be made so what is the next evolution in wireless communications?

    With the opening of the 2016 CS ManTech conference we have three speakers, Dr. Lauri Oksanen, Dr. Peter Gammel, and Chris Pearson talking about the next generation of mobile standards (5G). Dr. Oksanen will discuss the challenges and opportunities of 5G from the perspective of Nokia, a company specializing in mobile devices and telecommunications infrastructure equipment. Following Dr. Oksanen will be Dr. Peter Gammel from Skyworks. Dr. Gammel will discuss Skyworks’ approach to addressing the needs of the telecommunications industry with RF technology and where they see the future of 5G. Our third speaker, Chris Pearson from 5G Americas will discuss the process by which the next generation of wireless service offerings is developed. Chris Pearson’s talk will be at the start of Plenary II.

    1.1 Looking Ahead to 5G

    The continuing growth in demand from subscribers for better mobile broadband experiences is encouraging the industry to look ahead at how future 5G networks can be readied to meet extreme capacity and performance demands. Nokia, along with other industry partners, believes that communications beyond 2020 will involve a combination of existing and evolving systems, like LTE-Advanced and WiFi, coupled with new, revolutionary technologies designed to meet new requirements, such as virtually zero latency to support tactile Internet, machine control or augmented reality. 5G will be the set of technical components and systems needed to handle these requirements and overcome the limits of current systems. This plenary session presentation provides an overview of the 5G vision and discusses the requirements, challenges and opportunities that exist for new technological solutions.

    Semiconductor and package technology choices for 5G communication systems are considered. The market context and existing RF Front-End UE architectures are reviewed with emphasis on SIP technology. SOI, InP HBTs, and other technology candidates are discussed within this context. Rapid customization at the module level is needed in order to serve different manifestations of 5G systems in the early phases of market deployment and demonstrators.
