WORKSHOPS TO BE HELD IN CONJUNCTION WITH IEEE
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED NETWORKS AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS
“Last-mile” Challenges in Smart Infrastructure
19 December 2017, 9:00 AM – 5:30 PM
The world is undergoing an unprecedented pace of urbanization, and if present trends continue, the world urban population will rise at a phenomenal rate in the next few years. This rapid scale of urbanization will need smarter, sustainable cities based on smart infrastructure that are able to effectively and efficiently manage city utilities and services for its citizens.
Electric grids, water distribution systems, transportation systems, communication infrastructure, waste treatment plants, commercial buildings, hospitals, homes and education centers are existing vital facilities and infrastructure components that shape the liveability standard of a city. In the future, newer infrastructures and services will also bring benefits and create opportunities of added value to its citizens. An efficient and effective management of these existing and new city-wide systems’ requires DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION and HARMONIZATION of its traditional infrastructure.
The 1st edition of LastMileS workshop @ IEEE ANTS 2017 is an iconic platform where technology, techno-commercial and governance aspects will converge under the overarching theme of “Last-mile challenges in Smart Infrastructure”.
LastMileS will bring together practitioners, smart-city stakeholders and thought-leaders to present their latest achievements and innovations in the area of: an India appropriate “last-mile” communication, networking, and data transfer framework ; which shall enable digital transformation and harmonization of smart infrastructure and help bring down the CAPEX and OPEX in the upcoming smart cities deployments.
As we are launching the first edition of this workshop, we will only have invited talks.

5G and Future Wireless Technology (5GFWT 2017)
19 December 2017, 9:15 AM – 6:00 PM
- 5G is expected to support 1000x higher mobile data volume and at least 10x end-user data rate.
- It is required to support a wide range of bandwidths.
- It is expected to provide extreme low latency in order to support tactile Internet.
- The number of connected devices is predicted to increase by a factor of 10-100x, thereby bringing in a need to support thousand of devices per access point.
- It is desired to support asynchronous and random network access requirement of the low power M2M devices
- Most importantly, an End-to-End Architecture that allows for a cost- and time-efficient introduction of 5G is needed.
