Session Abstract:The buzz word 5G has generated a lot of excitement recently. But what is 5G? How is it different from the existing standards such as LTE and Wi-Fi? In this talk, we give an overview of 5G. We then focus on several key technologies of 5G, including waveforms, numerology, channel coding and beamforming, and explain how they may deliver the promised performance by diving into a use case -- remote surgery.
