Welcome to our 2017 Section Officers!
The IEEE Communication Society
from Silicon Valley, San Francisco, and East Bay are holding a joint
Distinguished Lecturer Talk:
Speaker: Dr. Liangping Ma
Date: 6:30pm - 8:30pm on July
Location: TI Building E
Center Auditorium in Santa Clara.
Abstract: The buzz word 5G has generated a lot of excitement recently.
But what is 5G? How is it different from the existing standards such as
LTE and Wi-Fi? In this talk, we give an overview of 5G. We then focus
on several key technologies of 5G, including waveforms, numerology,
channel coding and beamforming, and explain how they may deliver the
promised performance by diving into a use case -- remote surgery.
