IEEE 5G initiative relaunched as IEEE Future Networks 

IEEE is proud to announce that the IEEE Future Directions 5G Initiative is being relaunched as IEEE Future Networks, with the tagline, Enabling 5G and Beyond. The new brand name, tagline and identity better reflect the unique, multidimensional scope of contributions IEEE makes to the current 5G marketplace and the coming evolution of technologies beyond contemporary telecommunications generations. Recognizing that networking is larger than a single technology, standard, organization, or region, the IEEE Future Networks Initiative serves the purpose of engaging and mobilizing professionals worldwide across industry, government, academia, and the standards, policy, and regulatory communities to realize the historic transformation enabled by 5G and future generations of connectivity and networking. To learn more, read our About page. Join IEEE Future Networks and be part of the collaboration to enable the promise of 5G and beyond for the benefit of all.
