Connectivity & Telecom

Overview

The IEEE SA is building an ecosystem of interested stakeholders from across the globe to address the need for robust, responsible and affordable wired/wireless platforms while providing improved and reliable connectivity to meet the ever-increasing data needs through the creation of the Connectivity & Telecom Practice.

Featured

Cyber Security for Next Generation Connectivity Systems

Aiming to build a community to discuss cyber security issues and rethink architectures to address critical market needs, this IC activity proposes five architecture principles or baseline realities to create more secure and trusted digital platforms.

Open RAN (Radio Access Network) Industry Connections Activity

This IC activity will develop a structured sustainable framework/guideline to address the deployment, interoperability, configuration and fault management, and performance issues of the Open RAN architecture.

Join the activity in enabling next-generation RAN infrastructures.

Rural Communications Industry Connections Activity

Join this activity to help contribute toward the goal of global digital inclusion by developing solutions for rural and remote areas using suitable technologies. Rural areas of countries continue to be sparsely covered and are not considered as a viable business case by telecommunication operators. Recent growth of teledensity in urban areas, fueled by mobile technology, has meant that the digital gap between rural and urban areas has widened.

User-Centered Approach to Designing a User Interface for Rural Communities

Bringing together experts and designers from across industries, an Industry Connections (IC) Program was formed to research technology needs of global rural communities. These insights will be used to develop a model for the design and implementation of user interfaces for rural communities.

Join this IC program in designing a user-centered interface and improving computer literacy for rural users.

A Transdisciplinary Framework for 5G, Future Networks Applications, and Services

Today’s communication architectures are typically designed in a bottom-up approach, requiring the applications to fit the underlying physical layer (PHY). This fragmented landscape is difficult to introduce newer components and applications. An Industry Connections (IC) program was formed to develop a transdisciplinary framework that incorporates cross-domain services and applications into one flexible, scalable, and sustainable ecosystem.

Join this IC program in breaking industry silos for 5G and future networks.
