Email [masked] for more details. Natural speech interaction is now in common use and technologies such as gesture recognition and haptic touch are moving from R&D into real products. Various technical advances are driving this revolution (such as AI), but at the same time, society is desperately searching for a more natural way to interact with the myriad of machines with which we interact with on a daily basis. As the Internet of Things grows, humans will need a more efficient way to interact with these things than a keyboard and mouse! In this afternoon event, we will take a deep dive into the enabling technology behind this revolution and target different human senses through innovations such as optical displays, haptic touch, voice recognition and even brain interfaces.

*Please confirm your attendance for this event via the event page at: https://www.cambridgewireless.co.uk/events/whats-nanosecond-between-friends/ An event to review the state-of-the-art in clocks from the highest precision scientific devices to timing applications driven by cost and power. What is the implication of time on technology's future? Robust time and synchronisation play major roles in positioning, from the high accuracy and precision required by GNSS satellites and LiDAR to radar, cellular positioning technologies and ultrasound ranging. In the cellular world, successive technology generations have demanded stricter synchronisation amongst network entities. Maintaining accurate time to the edges of networks is one challenge, as is robust distribution in a network that may contain unknown or variable delays and attack threats is another. Demands from financial services, broadcasting and power transmission are also challenging. With the introduction of 5G imminent and connected autonomous vehicles on the horizon, how will the requirements for time accuracy and availability change? We shall explore the implications of technological advances given by the exceptionally high accuracy of quantum and optical lattice clocks. We will also look at trade-offs between performance and size, weight, power, cost, robustness and environmental tolerances, including, for example, MEMS and graphene oscillators. This event is kindly hosted by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL). The event is delivered by The CW Location SIG in partnership with The KTN and supported by UK5G.

An intensive full-day training on 5G requirements, architecture and applications given by Zahid Ghadialy. Places are limited to 30 so book early to avoid disappointment. This intensive full-day day course is ideally designed to provide a high-level technical overview of 5G technology: looking at requirements, end-to-end architecture & applications and helping to align the different pieces of the puzzle together to create a complete picture. Why should you choose this course? Mobile technology is moving at an unbelievable pace. The first data service for the mobile phone was launched in 2000. Since then we have had 3G & 4G roll outs. Last year we saw many 5G trial announcements and a few commercial rollout announcements. This year 5G is going mainstream with more announcements expected from every corner of the world. Back when 2G & even 3G networks were rolled out, nobody could have foreseen the impact smartphones would have in our daily lives. Mobile devices have not only become the primary medium for connecting to the internet, but these small devices have computational power far greater than the computer used in Apollo 11, the spaceflight that first landed man on the moon. As mobile technology-based devices are evolving, they can do far more than just messaging, calling and mobile broadband. For example, Machine-to-machine (M2M), Internet of Things (IoT), Mobile TV, Public safety, etc. are some areas where this technology is also being used. This intensive day-long course is ideally designed to provide a high-level technical overview of the 5G technology: looking at requirements, end-to-end architecture & applications and help align the different pieces of the puzzle together to create a complete picture. Who should attend? This course is ideally designed for people who are familiar with mobile technology, especially 3G and/or 4G technology. While a more detailed technical knowledge would be helpful, it will still have plenty to offer to others who may not be very familiar with the details. The following people would benefit by attending this course: Senior Managers / Directors Project/Programme managers who are new in their role Sales/Marketing people Coders, Testers and Technicians Anyone else wishing to learn about 5G technology in general. What is the course outcome? By the end of the course you are expected to understand the motivation for moving beyond 4G, onto 5G. You will become familiar with the architecture and the different technical options. If you are attending it for work reasons, then this should help you in your daily work and if you are attending it just to understand the technology then it should help you understand many new topic areas. Who is the course leader? Zahid Ghadialy is the Founder and Principal Consultant at 3G4G. He is also a Senior Director at Parallel Wireless & a Board member and SIG champion at CW. He has been involved with both innovative start-ups and established, public industry leaders from chipset and handset manufacturers to network equipment vendors, research, small cells and Wi-Fi companies, analyst and consulting firms. He is widely recognized as an evangelist for new technologies starting early in his career as a team member of the group spearheading the first 3G network rollout in Japan and in Europe. Since then he has widely disseminated various ideas and information through lectures, talks, trainings and mainly through his blogs and websites. He is also a regular speaker at many national and international conferences and events.

Email [masked] for more details. This event will explore the design and optimisation of the macro cell layer and its role within future heterogeneous networks. There’s plenty of talk about small cells and their role in future heterogeneous networks, however there’s little mention of the evolution of macro cells. The macro layer comprises most of today’s deployed cellular radio sites which range from rooftops, towers, masts, columns, poles and wall mounted installations. The network often comprises of a range of macro cell sizes, from large macros to mini and targeted micro-cells. This event will explore the current and future design and optimisation of the macro cell layer, along with its role within future heterogenous networks. Sessions will discuss network planning and base station design, RF, transmission lines and antenna systems along with the trend towards tower top electronics, massive MIMO, wider radio channels and higher frequency bands.
