Wireless research beyond 5G
Wireless technologies, in particular 5G, are perceived as reaching a high level of maturity. Therefore, it appears as if there is not much room for research anymore. Nothing is less true. There are still a vast number of topics that require further investigation as well as many new wireless research areas that are opened due to advances in various technologies.

The use cases are well known:  ubiquitous sensors, access to broadband and media everywhere, smart vehicles and transportation systems, critical control of remote devices, human-IoT interaction, infrastructure monitoring and control, etc. These have dictated the challenges for the future 5G infrastructure: orders of magnitude improvements of access network capacity, per-user data rates, latency, and energy consumption, in conjunction with high reliability and security.  Beyond 5G, new paradigms, applications and application domains are envisaged, requiring technologies that push the boundaries.

In this talk, we will present the wireless research challenges that lie ahead, and the way the Center for Wireless Technology Eindhoven (CWTe) intends to contribute to this.
