This program on 5G heterogeneous and small cell networks will bring together top academic and industrial engineers and researchers to discuss technical challenges and recent results related to the latest developments in 5G. The workshop will be comprised of a number of short lightening talks to share the views of chip makers, vendors, operators and academics as well as several panels to allow the interaction with the audience. Topics of interest that will be cover mainly include but are not restricted to, ultra-dense networks, massive MIMO, millimeter Wave, unlicensed band technologies and co-existence, internet of things and new network devices as well as the for new network architectures and standards to accommodate all these technologies.

IPR2: Accelerate 5G Design and Test
Martha Zemede, Greg Jue, Sangkyo Shin, Mike Millhaem, Robin Wang, Keysight Technologies

This workshop covers the following key 5G topics: the communication system architect’s guide to 5G physical layer modeling, massive MIMO technology insights and challenges, a flexible testbed for 5G waveform generation, analysis, and coexistence, and 5G mmWave MIMO channel sounding.
Physical layer 5G communications system modeling and verification case studies, multi-antenna system architectures, advanced modem technology and millimeter wave wireless channel models with realistic system model examples, and a new simulation methodology will be covered. Simulation software will be combined with test equipment to demonstrate a flexible testbed for 5G waveform generation and analysis. “What-if” scenarios will be examined to evaluate multiple potential coexistence scenarios for new emerging candidate 5G waveforms and 4G, satellite and S-band radar. Wideband signal generation and analysis case studies will be shown at microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies with modulation bandwidths up to 5 GHz. Amplitude and phase corrections of wideband waveforms are considered. MIMO channel sounding techniques will be discussed, combining design simulation software with wide-bandwidth multiple-channel microwave and millimeter-wave test equipment to characterize and model channel characteristics.

IPR3: Design and Development of Emerging Low Power Wake-up Receivers

Low power wireless communication is essential for the realization of truly ubiquitous connected IoT because radio transceivers are one of the biggest sources of power drains. The low power Wake-up Receiver (WUR) is a promising technology that can facilitate this by enabling an on-demand and asynchronous wake-up signal. Although the concept of WUR is not new, only recently it has attracted significant attention from industries due to the development of IOT, as an example, the IEEE 802.11 standardization has very recently formed a new WUR Study Group. This provides new opportunities for research and development of new receiver designs. Moreover, the design of existing MAC and networking protocols need to be revisited to leverage the WUR capability while managing interference and enabling coexistence. This workshop provides an overview of the recent WUR activities, and invites technical papers to discuss the design, development and use cases of low power wake-up receivers.
