Nokia and NYU WIRELESS have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Brooklyn 5G Summit event.

After a full assessment of the risks related to the continued spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Our primary focus has been to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees and others while also recognizing responsibility to the industry and customers. Since its outbreak, we have been carefully monitoring the situation and believe this is the most prudent decision. We are looking at various options for how we can deliver some of the relevant talks and discussions to the event attendees in a virtual format. Additionally, we plan to bring the physical event back to Brooklyn in 2021. We will provide more information on this in the coming days.

Brooklyn is the New Home of 5G

The Sixth Annual Brooklyn 5G Summit, to be held from April 21-24, 2020 in Brooklyn, NY. Nokia and the NYU WIRELESS research center at NYU Tandon School of Engineering are once again co-organizing this event, one of the most pre-eminent conferences on 5G, since its inception 6 years ago.

The Summit will build on the themes of the past five years, with a focus on the ‘First year of the 5G era’. This year’s summit will be centered around an open conversation on the deployment experiences of 5G networks, and a discussion of key issues, including critical spectral and economic factors. The latest innovations in all domains, including 5G New Radio, Core and IoT technologies and network slicing will be highlighted, as well as, emerging technologies such as machine learning, Terahertz communication, non-terrestrial networks, ultra-reliable low latency and private networks.

We will explore the most promising use cases in industrial and infrastructure automation and enhanced consumer experiences, with select industrial and start-up companies joining to share their work in these areas. In addition to presentations from leading experts and lively panel discussions, there will be exhibits and demonstrations of the most advanced 5G technologies.

On April 26th, there will be a special tour of the Nokia Bell Labs facility in Murray Hill, NJ, showcasing recent Bell Labs Innovations and the end-to-end Future X Lab.

FCC Takes Steps to Open Spectrum Horizons for New Services and Technologies

The Federal Communications Commission adopted new rules to encourage the development of new communications technologies and expedite the deployment of new services in the spectrum above 95 GHz. This spectrum has long been considered the outermost horizon of the usable spectrum range, but rapid advancements in radio technology have made these bands especially ripe for new development.

It’s Officially Time to Start Talking About 6G

Yes, it sounds crazy -- and yes, we're still at the very early stages of 5G -- but it is officially time to start talking about 6G.

Don't panic just yet though: Some of the top experts in the industry agree that 6G is still more of a concept than a concrete idea, and no real products are expected for at least a decade or so.

A comprehensive list of awards given to Institute Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Elza Erkip would be a very lengthy document. Early on, Erkip, the junior past president of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Information Theory Society, was selected by the National Science Foundation (NSF) as one of the country’s most promising young researchers, garnering its prestigious CAREER Award, and she counts among her more recent laurels membership in the inaugural class of the Science Academy Society of Turkey (an organization that promotes scientific merit, freedom and integrity) and inclusion on the Clarivate list of the most highly cited researchers multiple times.

Nokia, DoCoMo to demo 5G NR at 90 GHz during Brooklyn 5G Summit

Nokia is collaborating with NTT DoCoMo to demonstrate 5G New Radio (5G NR) enhancements at 90 GHz during the Brooklyn 5G Summit this week.

The duo will apply a Nokia Bell Labs-developed compact millimeter wave phased-array antenna system scalable up to 256-elements using an RFIC solution to enable multi-gigabit per second speeds. The test will demonstrate how using 5G NR enhancements at higher mmWave frequency bands can manage radio complexity and a larger number of antenna beams while enabling greater bandwidth.

The 5G wireless revolution will come, if your city council doesn’t block it first

The excitement around 5G is palpable at the Brooklyn 5G Summit this week, and for good reason. Once the province of academic engineers, there is increasingly a consensus emerging among technology leaders that millimeter-wave technology is ready for prime time.

Yet there remain large barriers to a successful rollout, particularly at the local government level. Those challenges could prevent the U.S. from aggressively competing with other nations like China, which are investing massive resources to lead this next generation of wireless technology.

Phased Arrays Move From Academic Curiosity to Industrial Reality

At the Brooklyn 5G Summit this week, a panel of leading researchers in 5G phased-array technology discussed its commercial status. The key question: Had phased arrays moved largely away from an academic pursuit to become an industrial concern?

Phased-array antennas, in which radio waves can be steered electronically in a desired direction, have become a key technology for 5G networks. The rapid development of this technology over the last five to 10 years appears to be one of the primary reasons why 5G is still on track for commercial rollout by 2020.

T-Mobile’s 5G Plan Encompasses Far More Than Millimeter Waves

Karri Kuoppamaki began his talk on Wednesday at the Brooklyn 5G Summit by discussing T-Mobile’s LTE network, an apparent anachronism. Or, as he put it, “Why am I talking about LTE? This isn’t the Brooklyn LTE Summit.”

But Kouppamaki, the Vice President of Radio Network Technology Development and Strategy for T-Mobile, had a good reason to spend the first portion of his talk discussing the current generation of wireless tech: Despite the radical departures 5G promises for network infrastructure and data rates, it will still be built on existing networks.
