Over the last 25 years, Wi-Fi has ascended from a technology that enabled computers to wirelessly transfer data at 2Mbps to winning a spot in Maslow’s pyramid as a basic human need. WLAN standard has continuously advanced itself by introducing amendments such as 802.11n, 802.11ac, and 802.11ax. This series of talks will focus on the key features and benefits of the latest generation of Wi-Fi, also known as Wi-Fi 6 based on 802.11ax. There will also be a discussion on the implications of FCC’s decision to open up 1.2 GHz of spectrum in the 6 GHz band for unlicensed use, setting the stage for Wi-Fi 6E. The future road map of WLAN is getting shaped by the new evolving standard, IEEE 802.11be (loosely referred to as WiFi 7), whose board goals and key technologies also will be highlighted.
Unlike 802.11ax based WiFi 6, where the focus was on high efficiency, the new group for 802.11be standardization is called as extreme high throughput (EHT) initiative. One of the special features of EHT so far has been the exploration of multi-link transmissions which can leverage the multiple band possibilities in a WLAN product. Such a method plans to leverage the recently announced 6 GHz bands for unlicensed usage.
Finally, there will be a discussion on the implementation and verification of WLAN standard compliant devices using standard tool like Matlab®. WLAN Toolbox can generate configurable physical layer waveforms for IEEE 802.11ax/ac/ad/ah and 802.11b/a/g/n/j/p standards. It also provides various ready-to-use components, such as channel coding, modulation, spatial stream mapping, channel models, MIMO receivers, etc., and reference designs for link level and system level simulations.

The world is experiencing unprecedented challenges from the COVID-19 Pandemic. Slow-down of the economy, social distancing and remote working has altered the way we work, learn and do business. The change has been so sudden that many of us were unprepared to accept the change. While many experienced professionals have adapted to new routines, many have lost entire livelihoods. With the slow-down of the jobs and global travel advisories, many students are facing uncertainties on their future. However, challenges and adversities are powerful vehicles to promote personal growth. The growth is catalysed by sound emotional health. It is important for us to recognize and address the emotions that cloud our mind. This workshop is an attempt to bring perspectives on understanding one’s emotions under adversities with an aim to help young professionals and students in addressing their career aspirations.
To own your career, it is crucial to cultivate an agile & open mindset. An open mindset is not just about learning new skills, it is a mantra to help you succeed in any adversity to face, as you build your career”.
Join this workshop to hear from industry leaders and counseling professionals to help you deal with the adversities and bring positivity within self and the surrounding.

Scalability and programmability is becoming necessary in network. The current typical model for building a mobile network is outdated. Operators are constrained by legacy vendor architectures that have remained essentially unchanged for over 25 years of mobile networks. These architectures fail to scale for today’s more dynamic, application-driven and zero trust environment. The era of programmable networks with SDN & NFV brings both the promise of rich applications and service agility. This workshop will empower you with fundamental principles of SDN/NFV, with detail on the frameworks and their applications. It will detail on innovations (in silicon, platform & protocols) happening from the RAN edge to Telco data center. The industry use cases for 5G, MEC, IoT will help you get insights and solidify your learning. You will gain insights on Devnet ecosystem, rising in the era of programmable networks.

Join this workshop to understand the how the network is evolving and what future network would be. Experts from industry will highlight some of these in the sessions.
