Do not miss the Brooklyn 5G Summit, livestreamed by IEEE. Arogyswami Paulraj of Stanford, perhaps the most distinguished communications engineer alive, is joined by Gerhard Fettweis (Tactile Internet,) MacArthur Fellow Dina Katabi of MIT and a dozen others. Executives include CTO Seizo Onoe of NTT, Marcus Weldon of Bell Labs, and AT&T #2 John Stankey.
They are speaking to their peers, so they bring the most recent and important results. Four and five years ago, Ted and team presented the data that convinced the industry mmWave will work, with hundreds of thousands of base stations in the works now. Marcus brought an inspiring call for 1 ms latency, still to be realized. This year, Paulraj is bringing insights into 60 GHz, above the current 5G range. That's nothing: Kaushik Sengupta of Princeton is working with terahertz.
