This agenda will be updated continuously. 

DAY 1 - THURSDAY, NOV 07, 2019

08.00 - 09.00 REGISTRATION

09.00-18.00 TRACK 1 - TUTORIAL & WORKSHOP

5G Technologies & Enablers – Core Networks, Edge Computing, Management & Slicing

Morning: Tutorial “5G Technologies“

Afternoon: Half-Day Workshop “5G Technologies – From Standards to Products and Solutions“  

5G Technologies Tutorial

This tutorial follows the evolution of the 5G technologies beyond the first commercial products available on the market, specifically concentrating on the foreseen impact of 5G within the digitalization of the various industries and on the equivalent standardization procedures within 3GPP Release 16. In particular, the concept of local networks addressing the needs of vertical markets and their integration into the global telecommunication infrastructure will be detailed.

The tutorial will cover a comprehensive number of telecommunication technologies, from the perspective of the 5G system as the basis for a highly flexible, customizable and automatic network infrastructure. Aiming to become a mirror on the path towards reaching the full potential of the 5G networks, this tutorial covers, from the perspective of software networks, the following topics: Local network requirements, core network architecture and edge-central split models, radio advancements and their impact on the core network, opportunities of AI, automation and management interfaces.

Being an anniversary edition, this tutorial will include a set of slides from previous tutorials, especially concentrating on how the technologies have realistically evolved, giving the audience a deep understanding on the R&D processes and expectations.

The tutorial will cover the following topics:

  • Understanding the impact of software platforms on telecommunications
  • 5G system standardization advancements
  • Customization and flexibility features to address use case needs
  • Impact of data-driven management and AI on end-to-end telecom infrastructure
  • Best practice developments of 5G networks and trials

09.00-18.00 TRACK 2 - WORKSHOP

5G Testbeds, Trials, and Best Practices Workshop

Morning: European 5G Testbeds, Trials, and Best Practices

Afternoon: International 5G Testbeds, Trials, and Best Practices

While operators schedule their commercial 5G rollouts, vertical industries are actively seeking means of testing their use cases and 5G-ready products to validate and evaluate key 5G features. Therein 5G testbeds and trials play an essential role. This workshop aims to bring together experts from all over the world who are engaged in bringing 5G technologies into real life by means of 5G testbeds and trials.

The track is structured into three sessions, organized in a workshop format, starting with topic-specific presentations followed by interactive discussions among participants and presenters.

09.00-18.00 TRACK 3 - WORKSHOP

Vertical Use Cases, Rollouts and Migration Towards 5G

National Operator 5G Deployment Options & 5G Business Cases


Opening: Prof. Thomas Magedanz, Fraunhofer FOKUS/TU Berlin, Germany

Stimulation Talk:
Current Status Of 5G Rollouts In Regard To 4G Evolution
Falk Schröder, Detecon International GmbH, Germany

Stimulation Talk:
5G: Evolution and Revolution
Paul Wilson, TM Forum, UK

5G is becoming reality! But how is the past hype around the diverse breathtaking 5G capabilities matching with the first deployments? Many countries have meanwhile assigned the 5G frequencies to operators and many network operators are now starting to deploy 5G networks based on the first 5G products being or becoming available this year based on the last 3GPP Release 15 specifications. In this full-day workshop we want to discuss highly interactively with 5G pioneers and key international experts the current application drivers - such as Media, Automotive, Manufacturing, etc - as well as the technological options for deploying national 5G operator networks as well as new local/campus 5G networks. Of course major questions arising at this point in time are when, where and for what to deploy 5G at an early point in time, knowing that the products and end systems have limited capabilities and 4G/5G interworking and migration will be challenging. So will fixed wireless access and enhanced multimedia applications be the major drivers we will see in the market? And/or will we see already new industrial IoT applications and reduced latency infrastructures in some locations? So what is or what are the short-term 5G business cases and what are the long-term ones?

In the morning we will look at national/international network operator 5G deployments, whereas in the afternoon we want to focus on local 5G networks, including also the option of private 5G networks. The sessions will feature many short talks and a longer panel after the sessions in the morning and in the afternoon allowing for discussions among the speakers and the audience.

Some important features that are being deployed in 5G networks, such as network slicing, C-RAN, dynamic functional splits, and edge computing, require novel architectures as well as new radio technologies, both in the transport and in the access network.

Moreover, the new requirements on 5G networks coming from different verticals and new services do have a significant impact on the needed performance of the wireless access links.

Based on requirements and architectural considerations of the transport and access network, this workshop highlights implications on the convergence of wired and wireless technologies. New developments of high capacity and low latency wireless links will be presented and evaluated.
