The 2019 IEEE 2nd 5G World Forum (5GWF’19), was jointly organized by IEEE and 5G Lab Germany in conjunction with the IEEE 4th 5G Summit Dresden, which was held in Dresden, Germany, from September 30 through October 2, 2019.
Topics discussed include 5G system design, ranging from silicon hardware, wireless interfaces, networks, edge clouds all the way up to Tactile Internet applications. This three-day event offered a unique platform for industry leaders, innovators, and researchers from industry and academia to collaborate and exchange ideas that help drive standards and rapid deployment forward.
Professor Muriel Médard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, looks at the traditional methods for managing throughput and delay, as well as current solutions that need more reliability. Prof. Médard reviews multi-path experiments, channel coding, along with a recently updated approach.

5G is the Greatest Technology Ever (Marketing Meets Engineering) - Henning Schulzrinne - 5G World Forum Dresden, 2019
Professor Henning Schulzrinne, Columbia University, uses his sense of humor with his tongue-in-cheek presentation title to draw attention to the fact that 5G gets a lot of hype for something still in development. Prof. Schulzrinne discusses the transition from 4G to 5G, and what defines 5G both locally and globally. Questioning all aspects of 5G as a platform, a service, and in relation to computing and applications for the IoT is also on the table.
Thyaga Nandagopal, National Science Foundation, looks back on the mobile generations to gather an understanding of how we got to where 5G is now, and a vision for the future of mobile communications. Nandagopal considers the challenges of 5G applications and working in high-band spectrum, emphasizing the need for experimentation, flexibility, and infrastructure.
John Cioffi, ASSIA, shares his keynote presentation on Reliably Fast Broadband and WiFi for the home, using statistic consistencies or ergodicity to optimize and improve spectrum management. Cioffi reviews 5G Links, convergence, spectrum management, and topics on standards development going forward.
Dr. Chih-Lin I, China Mobile, paints an immersive picture of what the network looks like from 4G changing lives to 5G changing society. Dr. I discusses the timeline and trials beyond today’s 5G environment, including China’s spectrum status, licensing, standards and the all-encompassing capabilities from entertainment to medical services to open-source architecture, that the cutting edge 5G has to offer.
Horst Fellner, Spirent, shares the perspective of the company’s evolution into the 5G network, a look at the solutions offered, and their connection to upcoming 5G deployments. Emphasizing the benefits of the Digital Twin, Fellner also discusses the campus testbed for 5G verticals.
Fouad El Mernissi, Axians, discusses the process of learning while developing connectivity solutions to offer insight when considering the implementation of 5G in Vertical Industries. El Mernissi shares a look into Axian’s project and capabilities, as well as real-world examples of 5G-enabled solutions implemented for various industry entities.
Dr. Tim Hentschel, Barkhausen Institute, discusses IoT use cases currently needed around the world that are fueled by climate change, as well as their ongoing research projects. Dr. Hentschel considers what the dependability of IoT means for system requirements and security concerns.
