How 5G Technology will reshape our Industries and Society

Date, time & venue

2020-01-14;18:30 - 20:00;Chan Yat Mei Sophie Room – 9/F


Jointly Organized by HKIE Electronics Division and Young Members Committee


5G is the fifth generation wireless technology for digital cellular networks that has begun deployment in 2019.  5G is posed to bring three key advancements in wireless communications. 

(1) Faster Data transfer:  5G data rates can reach 10 times higher than 4G.  At mmWave spectrum, it can reach 1-10 Gbps, such that a high-definition movie can be downloaded in seconds. 

(2) Lower Latency: Comparing with previous generations of technologies, 5G will significantly reduce the latency, or time lag between sending and receiving data.  This enables close to real-time interactive applications between the two communicating ends. 

(3) Increased capacity: 5G technology greatly increases the capacity over 4G/LTE, enabling more people and devices to communicate at the same time.  5G is expected to unleash a massive IoT (Internet of Things) ecosystem where networks can serve communication between billions of connected devices.

This seminar will present an update on the recent developments in 5G technologies, and its potential applications as an enabler in Smart Cities development.
