Event Details

5G, the fifth generation of wireless technology, is revolutionizing the wireless industry. 5G networks are envisioned to be faster and more robust than their predecessors, offering fiber-like mobile speeds and ultra-reliable communications to support the massive proliferation in mobile data traffic. In addition to supporting the insatiable demand for mobile applications, 5G is expected to transform industries by wirelessly connecting together devices in emerging verticals such as industrial automation, smart cities, smart agriculture, smart grids, smart manufacturing, autonomous driving, logistics and public safety. Consequently, new enabling technologies are required to harness the opportunities and address the challenges presented by existing and emerging 5G wireless applications. The key enabling technologies include a scalable Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM)-based air interface, Dynamic Time Division Duplex (TDD), Massive Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna configurations, advanced channel coding, and beamforming techniques.

This talk will present the major 5G services and uses cases, and the key technologies enabling them. The speaker will also provide insights from practical deployments and some of the 5G enhancements being discussed in the wireless industry..

History

Don V Black, PhD, realized in late 2013 that Orange County (OC) was ready for an ACM Chapter, and he decided to found such a Chapter.

Since five current ACM members in good standing were needed to sign a petition to start a Chapter, in September of 2014, he sent an email to his associates to sign the petition. Jeremy Harrington, Jenny Wang, Nilo Niccolai, Lynn Langit, Rebecca Perry, Daniel Whelan, Ken Bell, Keviin Fowler, Brian McCaleb, Dave Close, Lance Elliot, and Roger Whitney responded.

The following members attended the first lunch meetings held at the old University Club at UCI, and volunteered to serve as the first ACM officers in 2014.

  • Founding Chair: Don V Black, PhD
  • Vice Chair: Lance Elliot. PhD
  • Treasurer: Kevin Fowler
  • Secretary: Rebecca Perry, PhD
  • Communications: Jake Liang, PhD
  • Member-At-Large: Arthur Schwarz
  • University Liaison: Nilo Niccolai, PhD
  • Membership: Daniel Whelan, PhD
  • Programs: Dan Davis
  • Webmaster: Ken Bell
  • Mission Statement: Nilo Niccolai, PhD

A business manager at The UCI Institute for Innovation offered Don Black the use of the facility, which was yet to be built. Don took up the offer, and negotiated a free use of the facility for the GameSIG Showcase and ACM of OC. Don Black and others thought that since the demographics of both organizations included UCI students, they met the I4I criteria for free community support, and would increase visibility for the new UCI Institute for Innovation (I4I). They held on awesome GameSIG Showcase, and proceeded to promote ACM-OC bi-monthly presentations at the UCI I4I.

ACM-OC bi-monthly talks were extremely well received by the membership. At the suggestion of the Membership Chair, Daniel Whelan, Don Black followed the example of the San Francisco ACM Chapter, and added ACM-OC as one of his MeetUp groups.

Further details of this can be found at the ACM-OC archived website.
