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.
