Next Generation Mobile Communication Technologies

Tuesday 08 May 2012, 8:45–10:30 (501)

Rapid penetration of the smart phone causes huge traffic demand for cellular systems. M-to-M applications will also increase the data communication. Ten years later, the mobile packet transmission traffic might be 1000 time higher than now. Since the available frequency spectrum resources for mobile communications are limited, novel ideas and technologies are expected in order to remarkably increase the frequency spectrum utilization efficiency. Distinguished panelists present their technical proposals and exchange opinions for solving these challenging issues.
