Demystifying 5G & IoT

08 May - 11 May 2017
Oxford UK & Dublin, Irelend

Rohde & Schwarz has organised two free seminars focusing on the future of wireless communications.

What are “IoT” and “5G”? Are they one of the same thing? The events aim to inform and offer a view on the Internet of Things (IoT) and “5G” technologies. The day will discuss the motivations, applications, technical challenges and commercial status of these emerging wireless technologies.

This one-day seminar will briefly touch on the latest LTE developments, focusing on how these build towards a converging world of wireless communications involving the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G next generation mobile networks.

Some IoT technologies are well established, yet the explosion in new applications is firmly driving a rapid increase in the number of devices that will connect wirelessly using IoT. This seminar will explore the world of available and emerging IoT technologies, driven by applications that have increasingly complex requirements. In focus will be established, yet still evolving technologies, e.g. Bluetooth, WLAN, Zigbee and Z-wave. Meet the newer players, including, LoRaWAN, and Narrow-Band IoT (NB-IoT), to name a few.

'5G' aims to address a multitude of requirements, including some attributed to IoT. The need to realise innovative technologies for 5G, has seen significant investment in research projects around the world, potentially yielding pre-commercial trials during 2017. This part of the seminar will provide an overview of the primary requirements, standardisation timelines and a view on the increasing commercial focus. Additionally, some of the technical challenges and concepts with the new radio air interface will be discussed, including “Massive MIMO”; wide bandwidths and high frequencies; and innovative approaches to certification and production testing.

The day will culminate in key speakers from industry providing their own visions on the impacts of 5G and IoT. This seminar is for professionals wanting to gain a better understanding of the concepts and technologies involved in IoT and 5G. Technology demonstration zones will provide hands on experience with assistance from our experts.

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results. is operated and owned by Adrio Communications Ltd and edited by Ian Poole.
