Recently, IEEE Communications Society has developed a strategic framework based on the principles that embrace Industry's interests and priorities while integrating IEEE and ComSoc's objectives. In order to engage industry members with high value and innovative technologies, IEEE Communications Society plans to hold a series of high impact one day Summits in emerging technology areas (e.g., SDN/NFV, 5G, IoT, Big Data, and Cybersecurity).
The standardization organizations with inputs from companies and the research community worldwide are now driving the evolution of wireless communication networks towards the Fifth Generation (5G), This evolution will benefit operators, service providers, manufacturers and application developers, as well as companies of mostly any other sector, since wireless technology will improve their processes and positively impact the world economy, and finally the citizens that will enjoy communications with improved quality and new services.
The IEEE 5G Brazil Summit is part of a successful series of 5G Summits that have been held since 2015 in America, Asia and Europe, and will contribute to continuous provision of a platform for the industry leaders, innovators, and researchers from the industry and academic community to collaborate and exchange ideas in this emerging technology that may help in driving the standards and rapid deployment.
The event will be held on May 22, 2018, in Brasília, Brazil, collocated with the TeleBrasil Panel 2018.
The programme is composed of a rich blend of speakers from industry, academia, research labs, standardization and regulation bodies, covering different main topics:
5G Vision and The Standards
Spectrum Usage Aspects
Trials in The World
5G Impact on the Society
Brazil Early Perspectives and Uses Cases
