5G Technologies Masterclass, 9 October 2017

One organisation in NI is enabling the telecom industry to move forward on 5G, it is the Centre for Wireless Innovation (CWI) at ECIT (Queen’s University Belfast), so we have partnered with CWI to bring you this exclusive and memorable lunchtime ‘free’ masterclass about the research for technologies that will build the foundations for the fifth generation of cellular networks.

5G is still in the early stages of development, expected to launch commercially in 2020 – it will be far superior to 4G in every way, as it is being designed to provide huge capacity and deliver extremely fast data speeds to support a wide range of innovative new services across all industries. Standardisation is not set yet, as scientists grapple with huge technological challenges like inter-cell intereference and traffic management (between human and machine-to-machine communication).

Join us for this one-of-a-kind, free masterclass at ECIT in the Titanic Quarter.
