Ask Us Anything:


This event is an open house of IEEE Communications Society Bangalore to answer “Ask Us Anything” by attendees. As the second wave of the COVID-19 has been causing enormous distress to everyone, the session will start with a presentation by Rags Raghavendra Prasad T S, the founder of the Project StepOne who is providing frontline support during this pandemic through Telemedicine, emotional support, and general information sharing.

This will be followed by an open panel session to take specific questions from the participants. The lockdown and work/college from home have caused challenges over multiple dimensions – professional growth, job loss, cancellation of exams, cancellation of offered jobs, an uncertain outlook for higher studies, and so on. The panel will have representation from Academia and Industry to address questions related to professional, emotional, and personal challenges that one may need help for.

IEEE ComSoc Bangalore Chapter in association with IEEE Kharagpur Section is glad to present yet another workshop of immense relevance, titled 6G: Requirements and use-cases on May 8, 2021, Saturday at 10:00 AM

The world has seen a strong transformation of 5G with respect to Research and Deployment, but the ongoing transformation will eventually give rise to multiple challenges of 5G deployments and supporting use-cases. Thus, researchers have to think future networks which virtually has more touchpoint of our daily life, society, and integrating all the industries of the world in general, along with the communication needs of human and intelligent machines. In this webinar, speakers shall focus more on the requirements & use cases that will drive 6G, IoT applications migrations, and finally, the cellular network deployment features and its Radio Access Network.

Speaker lineup and topics covered in the workshop:

  • 6G: What will change? by Dr. Aloknath De, Chair, IEEE ComSoc Bangalore Chapter
  • 6G – Cellular Network Features Scope and Challenges  by Dr. Saptarshi Chaudhuri, Chief Architect – Radisys

IEEE Communications Society Bangalore is elated to invite you all to yet another interesting workshop on Data Management in 5G in association with Infosys, Bangalore, on the 13th of March at 10 AM

The workshop aims to provide insights on 5G networks which require a new approach to the management of data, as the network embraces Cloud-native architecture, Service Orientation. For the next few years, 4G and 5Gwill co-exist, which requires linkage of 4G subscriber data repository and UDM in 5G, which is being standardized now. As 5G encourages ecosystem collaboration, new opportunities arise with IoT and Edge for vertical industry solutions. Data Management becomes very key across domains within operators and the ecosystems for monetization. Cross-domain linkage is very key for handling Zero Touch Operations leveraging AI / ML and automation. As networks are becoming open, it’s important to focus on e2e data security, privacy, and governance.

IEEE ComSoc Bangalore and Delhi Chapter present a Workshop on End to End Security Security Landscape, Device, network, Application security :


This workshop is a first of a series of 5G security workshops. It will focus on end-to-end (E2E) security aspects of 4G, and beyond 5G network deployments. While the network has evolved to provide better bitrate(eMBB), lower latency (URLLC), and massive device connectivity (mMTC), the security threat surface also has evolved with it. The softwarization and network virtualization has magnified the challenge further. The intersection of 5G, IoT, DLT & AI/ML brings an extension of the existing threat surface that requires careful consideration from a cyber risk perspective in a zero-trust multi-cloud environment. The workshop would empower you with all you need for Securing 5G – from Client-to-Cloud.

Date & Time: Feb 27th, 9:30 AM onwards

NOTE: The workshop is free to attend, but registration is obligatory.


IEEE ComSoc Bangalore Chapter presents a workshop on 5G: Ultra-Reliable Low Latency (URLLC) for futuristic Applications :

The ITU-R has defined three main application areas for the enhanced capabilities of 5G. They are Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC), and Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC). The URLLC application will cater to multiple advanced services for latency-sensitive connected devices, such as factory automation, autonomous driving, the industrial internet, robotic surgeries. In this workshop, we discuss 5G Architecture with special reference to URLLC and the industry leaders will walk us through the standards, URLLC algorithms, and details of the complex deployment challenges across the vertical segments.

Date & Time: Feb 20, 2021 | 10 AM to 1 PM

(1 – 6 June, 2020 – 7:30pm – 8:30pm)

Please find the video recording of the sessions:

June 1st: Introduction to ATSC3.0, the next generation Broadcast Standard
June 6th: Massive MIMO for 5G

*IEEE ComSoc Bangalore* invites you to a session on *INTELLIGENT REFLECTING SURFACES: Fundamentals, Applications, Challenges and Future Trends* on *Jan 30th* at *10 AM*

In this two part talk on the topic of intelligent reflecting surfaces (IRS), we first introduce this new field by motivitating it from the perspective of 6G communications, as an evolution of next generation wireless communication systems. Next, we highlight the key differences between ambient backscattering communication (ABC) and IRS. Later, we present a detailed study on the mathematical models for IRS-based communications, and discuss key applications. Furthermore, we discuss the future research trends and the potential of IRS to coexist with other 6G-related technologies. Finally, we provide the concluding remarks, and list some of the unsolved problems in theory and practice.
