IEEE hosted this workshop in collaboration with the JHU Applied Physics Lab. The workshop's focus was to discuss the applicability of 5G technologies for tactical and first responder networks and related opportunities and challenges. The workshop provided a platform bringing together 5G experts from industry, academia, and the standards, regulator, and defense communities to discuss various 5G-specific use cases and requirements. The one-day event invited speakers from DARPA, DHS, FCC, NIST, NSF, Columbia University, NYU, Intel, National Instruments, Nokia, AT&T, CERDEC, IEEE, and 3GPP.
Chris Sambar of AT&T gives his perspective on the path to 5G and its impact on first responders. Recorded at the 2018 IEEE Workshop on 5G Technologies for Tactical and First Responder Networks, hosted by the IEEE Future Networks Initiative.
IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards - Paul Nikolich - 5G Technologies for Tactical and First Responder Networks 2018
Paul Nikolich, IEEE 802 LSMC Chairman, presents his talk about the low-level building blocks that make way for reliable packet networks.
