A Perspective of Wireless Innovations in the Next Decade
As we witness a globe roll-out 5G wireless, it is certain that 5G will unleash a new wave of the revolutions in many aspect of our daily life and work. 5G will change the society. Whilst wireless technology will continue to innovate in several fronts, in particular, the radio technology, the networking technology, we need a long term view on the direction of future wireless. In this talk, we explore the future wireless for the following perspectives: (1) the key role for future wireless is the cyber-controlled digital-world and physical-world, the neural network for society (2) the key requirement for future wireless is the trusted global connectivity and geo-sovereignty as the sustainable socio-economics fabric (3) the key capability for future wireless is the human-like-cognition-centric network based on the intelligent software. We also present some research challenges and technology breakthroughs required to deliver the vision for the future wireless.
