5G is still in the early stages of development, expected to launch commercially in 2020 - it will be far superior to 4G in every way, as it is being designed to provide huge capacity and deliver extremely fast data speeds to support a wide range of innovative new services across all industries. Standardisation is not set yet, as scientists grapple with huge technological challenges like inter-cell intereference and traffic management (between human and machine-to-machine communication). One organisation in NI is enabling the telecom industry to move forward on 5G, it is the Centre for Wireless Innovation (CWI) at ECIT (Queen's University Belfast), so we have partnered with CWI to bring you this exclusive and memorable lunchtime masterclass about the research for technologies that will build the foundations for the next generation of cellular networks. Join us for this unique, free masterclass where wireless innovation takes place, at ECIT in the Titanic Quarter. There's a visitor car park at ECIT (turn right after entering the NISP campus, behind the White Star House) as well as bus nr. 26a/b/c and a bicycle shed.
