IEEE 5G Summit


Tuesday, 23 June 2020
Location: Los Angeles Convention Center, Room TBD

The technologies and systems for 5G are now pushing for commercial deployment with focus on Stand Alone (SA) networks, mass market for 5G devices, and global adoption of mmWave in premium devices and for small cell enhancement and fixed wireless access (FWA). Furthermore and looking beyond 5G, technology research and development needs to focus on MIMO enhancement, V2X and IoT evolution, integration of 5G with Non-Terrestrial Network, and new FR3 & FR4 spectrum development. To bring all this into focus, the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) is organizing a 5G Summit at the 2020 MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS2020), 23 June 2020, with speakers at the leadership level from different companies and industries to discuss 5G related topics, including foundries, standards, mobile networks, MIMO and millimeter-wave systems, RFIC, and RFFE.  As part of the IEEE Comsoc 5G Summit series (details at, this summit will provide a platform for leaders, innovators, and researchers from both industrial and academic communities to collaborate and exchange ideas regarding 5G and beyond 5G technologies.

IEEE 5G Summit: TBD
