Round Table on 5G Communication Networks

Conducted By
National Instruments India

  • "Next generation wireless networks: Cellular, Wi-Fi and Spectrum Sharing"

    Speaker: Prof. Monisha Ghosh, University of Chicago


    Spectrum availability is fast becoming the limiting factor in the next generation of wireless systems. This talk will cover the latest developments in both cellular and Wi-Fi and how these will impact future network architectures and motivate a new thinking around spectrum sharing as an integral part of system design.

  • "OpenAirInterface Software"

    Speaker: Dr. Rohit Gupta, OpenAirInterface Development Manager, Eurecom, France


    Open-source has made a very significant impact in the extremities of current networks, namely in the terminals due to the Android ecosystem and in cloud infrastructure due, in part, to the OpenStack ecosystem ( The OpenAirInterface (OAI) Software Alliance aims to provide a similar ecosystem for the core (EPC) and access-network (EUTRAN) of 3GPP cellular systems with the possibility of interoperating with closed-source equipment in either portion of the network. OAI currently provides a standard-compliant implementation of a subset of Release 10 LTE for UE, eNB, MME, HSS, SGw and PGw on standard Linux-based computing equipment (Intel x86/ARM architectures). It can be used in conjunction with standard RF laboratory equipment available in many labs (i.e. National Instruments/Ettus USRP and high-end PXIe platforms). In addition to the huge economic success of the open-source model, the Alliance will be a tremendous tool used by both industry and academia. More importantly it will ensure a much-needed communication mechanism between the two in order to bring academia closer to complex real-world systems which are controlled by major industrial players in the wireless industry. In the context of the evolutionary path towards 5G, there is clearly the need for open-source tools to ensure a common R&D and prototyping framework for rapid proof-of-concept designs. The Alliance is a non-profit organization that will help drive innovation in 5G by following the standard as it is being drafted and, through quick interaction with 3GPP, will leverage the crowdsourcing effect both from industrial and academic users. In this talk, we will show selected use cases of Cloud-RAN and Internet of Things (IoT) using OpenAirInterface.
