Presentation abstract

5G: TRANSFORMING THE WAY WE INTERACT WITH OUR WORLD AND EACH OTHER

 

What started with mobile telephones grew into wireless data and the internet in the palm of our hands and has completely transformed the way we live today. In this talk we will discuss how mobile fueled the last 30 years of innovation and what it has made possible.

We will preview the path to 5G, delve into key component technologies and new spectrum paradigms, new use cases and entire industries 5G will enable and what we at Qualcomm are doing to make 5G happen and get a sense of the timeline for 5G.

We will also discuss the quantum transformation we expect 5G to bring to all aspects of our lives with examples in automotive, augmented reality/virtual reality, and critical IoT.

We will conclude with some pointers for the Semiconductor industry in helping make 5G real soon.
