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
(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
(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
