WHAT'S ABOUT International IEEE Summit on 5G, IoT and Big Data

Recent requirements, expectations and developments have shown that future networks and technologies will have to support internet and internet technologies. Moreover, volumes of mobile traffic should be more than 1000 times larger than today in a couple of years and a spectrum crunch is anticipated.


The 2019 IEEE 5G Summit Istanbul/Turkey aims to bring experts from industry, academia and research to exchange their vision as well as their achieved advances towards 5G, Big Data, M2M, Artificial Intelligence, SDN/NFV, Cloud Computing, IPv6 and IoT, and encourage innovative cross-domain studies, research, early deployment and large-scale pilot showcases that address the challenges of 5G and its ecosystem. Hoping that this summit will add a new dimension and value to the connected world, emerge the technologies for a smart society, and provide a comprehensive insight into the 5G and its ecosystem.


The main objective of this summit is summarized as:
  • to share their state-of-the-art knowledge with the emerging communities in view of facilitating the worldwide harmonization of research and best practices for deployment of viable user scenarios in the global ecosystem, the built-in security and privacy by design in new technologies,
  • to explore the different ways to enable internet protocols over the next generation of empowered devices in order to reach convergence and end to end transparency led by the IEEE 5G Technical SubCommittee which is supporting technically this event,
  • to bring experts, scientists and researchers in universities institutions, companies, associations, foundations and institutions on 5G, Big Data, IoT, IPv6 and Artificial Intelligence
