Juho Lee is currently a Master (technical VP) with Samsung Electronics, where he is leading research for mobile communications and standardization activity in 3GPP. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Korea, in 1993, 1995, and 2000, respectively. He joined Samsung Electronics in 2000 and has been working on research and standardization of 3G, 4G, and 5G mobile communications. He was a vice chairman of 3GPP RAN WG1 from February 2003 to August 2009 and chaired LTE/LTE-Advanced MIMO sessions. He also served as the rapporteur of the work item for specifying CoMP in 3GPP LTE-Advanced Rel-11. Dr. Lee is a Fellow of IEEE.
Moving Toward 6G
Following the completion of the first release of 5G standards in 2018, the mobile industry is now focusing on commercial deployments of 5G. It is generally expected that 5G would enable the support of new media experiences such as AR and VR over mobile networks and the support of new vertical services such as connected vehicles and smart factories, etc.
While the mobile industry is mainly focusing on the realization of 5G technologies, the history of mobile communication technologies shows the need for starting consideration on the next generation, i.e., 6G. This talk will review 5G technologies as the starting point of research for 6G and provide an initial view about vision and potential technologies of 6G.
