The IEEE ICC 2019 Workshop on 5G Trials aims at providing a snapshot of the status and progress of 5G trials, and will discuss the first results and the new insights and findings from the range of ongoing 5G trials. The workshop will cover key topics related to 5G trials, including, but not limited to:
- Evaluation of 5G spectrum
- Evaluation of the performance of 5G NR implementations
- System architecture, e.g. separation of DU/CU, and UP/CP
- Verification and performance test of 5G key enabling technologies, e.g., massive MIMO, multi-connectivity, network slicing
- 5G network planning
- Network deployment optimization
The workshop will be a mixed industry and academic event. The workshop will invite keynote speakers from major telecom operators and vendors. To further discuss the key topics in trials, the workshop will organize a panel with high-profile panellist from industry and the research community. The workshop’s technical sessions will include high quality papers to report key findings of the ongoing 5G trials.
Researchers are invited to submit their papers to the technical sessions (here).
