After two years away due to the pandemic, 280 wireless experts came to Munich for a personal exchange at the 19th Wireless Congress 2022 on November 16 and 17, which was once again held in parallel with the Electronica trade fair.

2022 trafen sich Wireless-Experten aus aller Welt wieder live und in Farbe auf dem Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications. Die vom Fachmedium Elektronik gemeinsam mit dem ZVEI und der electronica veranstaltete Expertenplattform bildete abermals das breite Spektrum der Funkkommunikation ab und bot dem Fachpublikum ein spannendes Programm mit gewohnt informativen Ein- und Ausblicken und auch neuen Themen rund um das Thema Wireless.

Right at the opening of the 19th Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications, Dr. Volker Ziegler, Senior Technology Advisor, Chief Architect of Nokia, gave an outlook on 6G, on the coming "revolution and evolution" in his keynote speech "A Glimpse of the 6G Future". Compared to 5G, 6G networks must meet an expanded set of requirements. In addition to the familiar three 5G requirements – eMBB (enhanced Mobile Broadband), URLLC (Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications), and mMTC (massive Machine Type Communications) – 6G adds three more: sustainability, digital inclusion, and security and privacy.

“A Glimpse of the 6G Future” lautete der Titel der Keynote von Dr. Volker Ziegler von Nokia auf dem Wireless Congress 2022. Nach seinem Vortrag hatten wir Gelegenheit zu einem kurzen Interview.

But the 19th Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications wasn't just about mobile, 5G and campus networks. The two-day conference program featured 71 technical presentations, in four parallel tracks, four keynotes, three panel discussions and two tutorials, providing a wealth of information on key wireless technologies and the latest developments.

Semiconductors are key to 6G and new applications

Andy McLean, corporate vice president of Cloud & Communications at Analog Devices, kicked off the keynote session on the second day of the conference with his keynote presentation, "The Path to Ubiquitous Connectivity." He addressed the challenges faced by the industry developing components and systems for today's and tomorrow's cellular networks, including the high power consumption of radio units in base stations.

“The Path to Ubiquitous Connectivity is Open” lautete der Titel der Keynote von Andy McLean von Analog Devices auf dem Wireless Congress 2022. Nach seinem Vortrag hatten wir Gelegenheit zu einem kurzen Interview.

The changes wireless technologies can bring to our everyday lives were presented by Philippe Dubois, Vice President & General Manager Secure Edge & Identification at NXP, in his subsequent keynote presentation, "Ultra-Wideband – the Dawn of Human-Activity Recognition". Access control – automatic door opening – and a simplified payment system are just two of the applications he addressed.

“UWB and the Dawn of Human-Activity Recognition” lautete der Titel der Keynote von Philippe Dubois von NXP Semiconductors auf dem Wireless Congress 2022. Nach seinem Vortrag hatten wir Gelegenheit zu einem kurzen Interview.

However, without significant advances in semiconductor technology, the goals set for 6G cannot be achieved. Eric Mercier, Deputy Head of Telecom & Wireless Department at CEA-Leti, showed in his keynote presentation how 30 GHz bandwidth at 140 GHz can be realized with 45-nm RFSOI CMOS technology – and he presented a concept to compensate for the high path losses at 140 GHz. Using an antenna array for 140 GHz with 1600 antenna elements, CEA-Leti researchers were able to achieve an antenna gain of 33 dBi.

“Enabling Technologies for the Future of Wireless Communications: From System to Nano-Electronics” lautete der Titel der Keynote von Eric Mercier von Leti auf dem Wireless Congress 2022. Nach seinem Vortrag hatten wir Gelegenheit zu einem kurzen Interview.

Technical presentations, discussions and networking

The keynotes, technical presentations, panel discussions and tutorials offered the 280 attendees of the 19th Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications know-how, direct contact with the respective wireless experts from research and industry, and many opportunities to exchange ideas and thoughts. As expected, three current trend topics met with higher interest this year: Localization – including the tutorial on Bluetooth Localization –, Matter and Mioty.

The program of the 19th Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications, which was divided into four parallel tracks, required participants to choose one of four topics. However, the overall program design proved to be well balanced, with participants spread almost evenly across the parallel presentations.

2023 – 20th Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications

In 2023, on November 7 and 8, the Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications will celebrate its 20th anniversary in Munich. Parallel to the conference, there will again be an accompanying exhibition. The call for papers for the 20th Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications will start in March 2023.
