One of the hottest topics in ICT research is the 5th generation (5G) wireless communications. Standard body and its participants are moving in incredible phase. The faster researchers can transition a concept from design to a working prototype, the faster the world benefits form it. This session will focus on prototyping efforts of 5G technologies by National Instruments with and without collaborations, including the new radio (NR). NI’s latest software defined radio (SDR) platforms will be presented also that will pave the way to 5G into the reality by rapid prototyping.

Jaeweon Kim is a senior wireless platform architect at National Instruments. Prior to joining National Instruments, he worked in SK Telecom, Bandspeed, Inc. and MediaExcel, Inc. Throughout his 20+ years of the academic and industry experiences, he has been working on 2G and 3G code division multiple access (CDMA) systems and their applications, WiFi, LTE/LTE-A, and 5G wireless communications, and issued several technical papers at international conferences, journals and book chapters as well as patents with wireless communication background.
