The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 5G Summit will be held at Strathclyde University’s Technology and Innovation centre in Glasgow on May 14. It will bring together delegates from across the UK and Europe consisting of government officials, academic experts and industry leaders. They will discuss emerging 5G technology and how to harness its potential and overcome the challenges involved in its development and deployment. This means tackling 5G NR (New Radio) technologies, how to maximise the use of spectrum and network slicing.
Professor Bob Stewart from the University of Strathclyde said: “The first IEEE summit was held at Princeton University in the USA in 2015 and since then there have been a number successful summits all over the world, but this is the first in the UK and we are excited to be hosting it.”
He added: “Scotland has first-hand experience of the particular geographic challenges faced in taking new technologies to rural areas and alongside a Plenary Session the event will feature two focused tracks, one on 5G IoT and one on 5G Rural, considering not just the technology but also the new business models that might be needed.”
