Join Dr David Soldani, VP Huawei European Research Centre, as he introduces the main ICT challenges and opportunities in EU, 5G vision and main research and innovation initiatives ongoing, globally.
He will describe a multitenant network and services vision and the most important 5G wireless, wireline and media enabling technologies, leveraging emerging technologies such as Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), High Performance (HPC) and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC). With a special focus given to 5G as the nervous system of the Silver Economy, looking at a better age friendly environment (housing), which can help people live longer, independently and thus reduce costs of long term care. In this context, 5G will be an integral part of the overall solution to the ambient (housing) assisted living concept, where service robots, mobiles, holographic rendering, cars, etc. could be connected using 5G communication technologies. Conclusions will be drawn on the main standardization activities and roadmap towards the IMT for 2020 and beyond.
