IEEE Future Networks Technology Roadmap Working Group

recruitmentBanner

Based on horizon scanning, interviews and expert knowledge, the mission of the 5G Roadmap working group is to identify short (~3 years), mid-term (~5 years) and long-term (~10 years) research, innovation and technology trends in the communications ecosystem. This will enable the development of a concrete innovation and engagement roadmap guiding the IEEE community towards maximum impact contributions across its societies, and in conjunction with its demand-side as well as the wider industry and standards ecosystem. The outcome shall be a live document with a clear set of (accountable) recommendations; the document shall be updated annually and be developed in conjunction with the other working groups.

We need your help!

IEEE 5G and Beyond Technology Roadmap White Paper  - October 2017

 The IEEE 5G and Beyond Technology Roadmap White Paper outlines the current telecommunications value chain that will need to adapt to changes and opportunities that the introduction of 5G and beyond technologies will bring. It describes key technology trends that will impact design drivers and challenges for technologies to simultaneously provide wireless communication, massive connectivity, the tactile internet, quality of service and network slicing. Future applications are listed that drive 5G and beyond requirements to provide societal benefits for education, manufacturing, healthcare, smart grid, entertainment, autonomous cars, and smart cities. And the white paper highlights technology enablers that need to be explored in the creation of the roadmap.

The IEEE 5G and Beyond Technology Roadmap White Paper summarizes the need for collaboration among all stakeholders in industry, academia, and standards development organizations in undertaking this high-risk engineering challenge. Collectively, the IEEE 5G and Beyond Technology Roadmap group thinks that, with widespread participation, the roadmap process outlined here can reduce some of the technical and engineering risk associated with the migration to 5G and Beyond technologies.

Perspectives on 5G Applications and Services - March 2018 

5G is not just an evolutionary upgrade of the previous generation of cellular, but it is a revolutionary technology envisioned that will eliminate the bounds of access, bandwidth, performance, and latency limitations on connectivity worldwide. 5G has the potential to enable fundamentally new applications, industries, and business models and dramatically improve quality of life around the world via unprecedented use cases that require high data-rate instantaneous communications, low latency, and massive connectivity for new applications for mobile, eHealth, autonomous vehicles, smart cities, smart homes, and the IoT.1

These papers discuss the impact of 5G on various applications. They contain a high-level view on industry trends, key drivers for the new technology, challenges from the network and connectivity, and technology requirements.
