Introduction

What have we learnt from 5G deployments? Considering benefits of RAN virtualization, O-RAN near-Real Time RIC use cases, RAN architectures supporting new verticals, e.g. public and private MEC, etc.

Workshop Goals

    • Exploring RAN architectures and use cases for non-coherent and coherent multi-TRP techniques, 3GPP high-precision positioning architecture and use cases
    • Assessing V2X architecture and use cases in licensed and unlicensed band spectrum
    • Understanding use cases and network architectures to support Uncrewed Aerial Vehicles (UAV)
    • Considering new techniques being investigated and developed on the road to 6G.

    Business casual suggested. No ties, please!

  8. How will handout materials be provided?

    For ALL IWPC members:

    All IWPC members are invited to submit materials to be included in the online workshop folder in the IWPC Research Library. This should NOT BE SALES MATERIALS. Rather, we suggest it contain technical information about your technology as it relates to the workshop topics.

    For all companies who will be making a presentation at the Workshop:

    You are invited to submit an advance copy of your presentation, complete with graphics and illustrations.  Please use PowerPoint 16:9 format and embed .mp4 videos if have them.  Please do not use .wmv, .avi or other video format, .mp4 only.  No proprietary markings please.  Do not include any pages or images that require going online or have security requirements.  Everything needs to be embedded in the file and unprotected.  The laptop that will display the presentations during the workshop is not connected to the internet so external links to YouTube or anywhere else will not work.  All content must run locally in PowerPoint.

    These materials will be included on the IWPC website Research Library for member access in PDF format.

    Please submit these materials either by email, as a Word for Windows file, Power Point files or PDF files.
