  • Keynote Speakers


  • Dr. Leif Wilhelmsson, Ericsson Research, Lund, Sweden

Title: Key IEEE 802.11 components: High Efficiency Wi-Fi and Wake-Up Radios

Abstract:  Leveraging on the success of earlier amendments of 802.11, such as 802.11n and 802.11ac, two new amendment are under development targeting improved spectrum efficiency and power consumption. This presentation will discuss some key features of High-efficiency Wi-Fi, 802.11 ax,  such as OFDMA, MU-MIMO, and means for improved spatial reuse.  We will also discuss activities within 802.11ba, where Wake-Up Radios for 802.11 are currently standardized.


  • Dr. Peter Karlsson, Sony Mobile, Lund, Sweden

Title: Next levels of low power and long range cellular IoT

Abstract: Solutions for low power and long range IoT connectivity to cellular networks have been standardised in 3GPP and new releases are in progress. The talk will describe use cases, an overview of cellular IoT Machine Type Communications (MTC) features in different 3GPP releases and latest implementations and prototyping of low complexity chipsets and modules.
