Welcome to the 38th Meeting of the Wireless World Research Forum

Theme "5G – Enabling the Connected Society "

The fast pace of digitization is having a major impact on the society and hence we now often hear the term “Connected Society”.  This “Connected Society” will become pervasive throughout our daily lives in the future that that includes health, transportation, manufacturing, energy management, and in environments such as smart cities. It provides opportunities for the ICT industry together with vertical industries and new players to bring forth new and innovative solutions that meet the needs of societies in the future.

5G will be a key enabler in this transformation, accommodating the diverse connectivity, storage and processing needs in each of these vertical sectors. New capabilities of 5G, from enhanced mobile broadband to massive connectivity supporting the Internet of Things, and high-reliability low-latency connections to provide secure real-time control applications are required to achieve the goals of “Connected Society”.

To rise to the challenges there will be a new community of developers and entrepreneurs to implement a new wave of technology innovation of the vertical applications. WWRF is at the heart of this process, with its Vertical Industry Platforms creating a bridge between the ICT and vertical industries, providing opportunities in its meetings to promote and discuss new developments.

At our meeting in Hsinchu, Taiwan on 28th -30th March 2017 we are providing a 5G Day (28th March 2017) on “Connected Society” followed by two days of in-depth workshops, invited talks and contributed technical papers on this very subject.
