What will after 5G ?

Jean-Claude Belfiore (Huawei)

Date et lieu

ENSEA, salle 384


It is now certain that 5G will unleash a new wave of the revolutions in many aspect of our daily life and work. 5G will change the society. Whilst wireless technology will continue to innovate along many directions and feed all 5G future releases, we need a longer term view on the direction of future wireless. In this talk, we explore the future wireless for the following perspectives:
(1) The key role for future wireless is the cyber-controlled digital-world and physical-world, a new form of Artificial Intelligence and the consequences that it will provide both on its theoretical and practical aspects.
(2) The key role of new bands, millimeter waves which, maybe will not be part of 5G and TeraHertz bands.
(3) The key capability for future wireless is the human-like-cognition-centric network based on the intelligent software.
Based on these perspectives, we give some new research challenges for future Wireless Networks.


Jean-Claude Belfiore graduated from Supelec, France, got a PhD from Telecom ParisTech  and the Habilitation (HdR) from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC).
Until 2015, he was with Telecom ParisTech as a full Professor in the Communications & Electronics department. In 2015, he joined the Mathematical and Algorithmic Sciences Lab of Huawei. Jean-Claude Belfiore has made pioneering contributions on modulation and coding for wireless systems (especially space-time coding) by using tools of number theory. He is also one of the co-inventors of the celebrated Golden Code of the Wi-Max standard and is author or co-author of more than 200 technical papers and communications and has served as advisor for more than 30 Ph.D. students. He was Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory for Coding Theory and has been the recipient of the 2007 Blondel Medal. Since November 2015, Jean-Claude Belfiore has joined the Paris Research Center of Huawei Technologies where he leads a Department. He has been involved in the 5G standardization process, essentially for the Channel Coding track (Polar Codes for 5G). He now participates in the definition of what will come after 5G.
