Abstract:  We are witnessing an exciting time for future wireless networks with the emergence of 5G.  In contrast to 3G and 4G, which were mainly a continuation of their predecessors, 5G will represent a revolutionary leap and will have a huge impact on the transformation of wireless communications industries as well as vertical industries.   In this talk, we will describe the key challenges and requirements such as ultra-low latency and massive connectivity.  We also describe some of the important technologies and innovations ranging from air technologies and network design to services that are needed to meet the demands of the next-generation wireless networks and guarantee broadband ubiquitous communications of all things, including human-to-machine and machine-to-machine, for a connected living. 

Biography:  Dr. Letaief is an internationally recognized leader in wireless communications and networks with research interest in big data analytics systems, mobile cloud and edge computing, tactile Internet, 5G systems and beyond.  In these areas, he has over 600 journal and conference papers and given keynote talks as well as courses all over the world.  He also has 15 patents, including 11 US patents.
