5G Tech Session & Speakers
IAFI is pleased to bring you the 5G Tech Sessions in partnership with Samsung R&D, Bangalore. The 5G Tech Sessions are designed to provide you an overview of the 5G Technology across the entire stack and end-to-end, covering the aspects of Radio, Core Network, Security and Services. These sessions will be presented by experts who have been closely working on these topics within 3GPP, and therefore, should provide you a first-hand view of the key underlying concepts of the 5G Technology. The sessions will not only provide you an overview of 5G, but will put emphasis on the differences between LTE and 5G, as well as the new enhancements that sets 5G apart from the conventional LTE/3G systems. We look forward to your participation in these knowledge sharing sessions!
