Horizon House Publications and Microwave Journal China are pleased to announce that EDI CON 2015, taking place April 14-16, 2015 has added a 5G Advanced Communications Forum to the conference schedule. The 5G Forum will be a full day of sessions taking place on April 15 at the China National Convention Center (CNCC). The 5G Forum will kick off with China Mobile presenting their perspective on 5G technologies followed by a panel session including experts from organizations such as China Mobile, Shanghai Tech, Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz and National Instruments. A series of sessions will follow covering topics such as massive MIMO, HetNets, phased array transceivers, timing and synchronization, testing challenges, new modulation schemes and mmWave technologies.

5G research and development is taking off, with the standards creation process getting started and implementation scheduled to begin in 2020.  5G is expected to take a revolutionary leap from today’s 4G standards; so many companies and research organizations are heavily involved in testing and prototyping systems to evaluate these new technologies. President of Horizon House, Ivar Bazzy, commented, “The addition of the 5G Forum to EDI CON China is a natural enhancement to the conference, as many of the microwave technologies and testing techniques covered in our sessions will enable 5G systems in the future.”  EDI CON China is where RF/microwave and high speed digital industry experts exchange ideas and learn about new technologies being offered by companies from around the world, with emphasis on practical engineering.
