Telecom TV news channel: IEEE Wifi strategy play into 5G

ieee-5g-princeton-4628Telecom vendors and industry associations are mostly defining the vision of 5G i.e., what 5G could and what should be. IEEE, which is the custodian of WiFi (802.11), must also play a key role in 5G and this is particularly important when LTE and WiFi have to coexist with each other in unlicensed bands. Initial conversation suggest that WiFi standard evolution targets IOT application and the focus will be more on connectivity, ubiquity and vertical. More specifically, the modification will mostly be done in PHY and MAC characteristics of the existing WiFi.
This interesting investigation will be carried out as part of eWINE and we plan to bring novel solutions that can nicely address the coexistence issues.
