Challenges and Opportunities in Beyond-5G and 6G Communication
Dr. Ulf Gustavsson
Ericsson AB, Sweden
Abstract: As 5G NR is being rolled out, research effort is being focused on the evolution of what is to come in the post-5G era. In order to meet the diverse requirements of future wireless communication in terms of increased capacity and reduced latency, technologies such as distributed massive MIMO, sub-mm-wave and terahertz spectrum become technology components of interest. Furthermore, to meet the demands on connectivity anywhere anytime, non-terrestrial satellite networks will be needed, which brings about challenges both in terms of implementation as well as deployment. In this talk, we will discuss some of the important opportunities these technologies bring and the challenges faced by the microwave and wireless communication communities.
Speaker’s Bio: Ulf Gustavsson received the MSc degree in electrical engineering from Örebro University, Örebro, Sweden, in 2006, and the PhD degree from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2011. His background ranges from RF power amplifier design to signal processing and behavioral modeling. He’s currently a senior specialist with Ericsson Research, where his research interests include novel radio signal processing techniques for hardware impairment mitigation and behavioral modeling of radio hardware for future advanced antenna systems and communication engineering. Dr. Gustavsson is furthermore active in the current Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Industrial Doctorate Innovative Training Network (EID-ITN) MyWave (https://mywave-project.eu/), and were the lead scientist for Ericsson Research in the EID-ITN SILIKA (http://silika-project.eu/), which was successfully finalized in 2020.
