5G, LPWAN and localization were three of the main topics of the Wireless Congress 2019. The congress offered three keynotes, 44 lectures, three tutorials and an exhibition where 17 companies and associations informed about new developments, products and services.
Round about 260 participants attended the Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications on the two days of the event. They came to Munich, the Novotel Messe Munich, on 22 and 23 October 2019 to find out about the latest developments and trends in wireless communication. They were mainly interested in current topics: 5G mobile communication, LPWAN and localization as well as technology and Bluetooth.
This year's programme of the Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications combined technical presentations with presentations on system integration and practical applications as well as practical examples from the fields of IoT, automation and LPWAN. With the keynote speeches and the podium discussion on the second day of the congress, the focus was on the new 5G mobile communications technology:
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kellerer from the Technical University of Munich addressed the technical possibilities of 5G networks.
Dr. Andreas Müller from Bosch and chairman of the 5G-ACIA outlined future 5G deployment scenarios in industry, and
Helmut Schnierle of Telefonica sees 5G as posing many challenges for network operators, with changing network usage, new services and business models - and increasing competition with an increasing number of service providers.
Participants, speakers and exhibitors used the breaks and the get-together on the first evening of the Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications for networking. Questions about lectures, practical problems and solutions were discussed on these occasions - and new business contacts were also made.
Also the 16th Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications presented itself again as the annual meeting place of the wireless community in Munich.
