The 3C of 5G: Communication, Computing, Convergence
Fifth-generation cellular networks, a.k.a. 5G, are expected to be a complex but flexible system, characterized by innovative communication techniques and new computing paradigms. They will also realize the efficient convergence of various existing and emerging technologies. Such richness will translate into versatility: 5G will be able to effectively support a large range of services and applications, such as automotive systems and massive IoT applications. This talk will address the main concepts and innovations of 5G. We will first look at what 5G standards are shaping up to be. We will devote particular attention to the novel paradigm called Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), and how it can be exploited and implemented in real-world scenarios. Throughout the talk, we will also highlight the research directions that can be pursued in order to achieve the performance and scalability required by 5G.
