1st International Workshop on “5G Architecture (5GArch 2015)”

May 11 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

METIS is going to co-organize the 1st International Workshop on “5G Architecture (5GArch 2015)”, co-located with VTC-spring-2015 in Glasgow.

This workshop explores, among others, the following novel concepts in the context of novel 5G mobile architectures:

  • Flexible centralized RAN architectures and C-RAN; 
  • Functional split and function placement; 
  • Multi-service architectures; 
  • 5G wireless technologies; 
  • Cloud-based 5G mobile architectures; 
  • Network Function Virtualization NFV; 
  • Multi-tenancy architectures; 
  • Convergence of CN and RAN; 
  • SDN for radio access; 
  • Novel mobility management; 
  • Edge computing.
