The fifth generation of mobile radio not only promises even higher data rates and shorter latency times, but also that data traffic of many billions of end devices can be controlled. This opens up areas of application for 5G mobile communication in which wireless data transmission could not previously be used or in which special wireless technologies tailored to the application had to be developed.
5G is a wireless technology whose performance has the potential to open up new areas of application. One of these areas is automation technology, for which Germany even reserves a frequency range for campus networks. It seems quite realistic that the development that starts with 5G will not only influence all areas of life, it will also create new industries and put established industries under pressure.
But it will be years before 5G is fully developed. Alternative wireless technologies, e.g. for M2M and IIoT communication, are mature and immediately available – and are being further developed, as the second generation of LPWAN technologies proves.
Meeting Point for the Wireless Community
With the Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications in Munich, Elektronik, Electronica Messe München and ZVEI have established a platform for networking and information exchange between wireless experts from academic research and industry.
The 16th Wireless Congress starts on 22 October at the Novotel Munich Messe. The two-day congress program offers lectures on the latest developments in wireless communication, mobile communications (5G) – but not only.
Further topics are: Industrial Wireless, LPWAN, Bluetooth, Localization and Industrial IoT as well as Mioty and secure radio communication. Details of the congress programme can be found on the congress website: www.wireless-congress.com.
