Virtual Launch Event | IEEE Future Networks UK and Ireland Local Group
IEEE Future Networks UK and Ireland Local Group was founded in November 2020 to promote IEEE Future Networks activities in UK and Ireland. The group carries out various activities including workshops, technical seminars, standardisation, networking and social events, community development and outreach, public engagement and industrial liaison, and special projects for the IEEE UK and Ireland Section. The focus of the local group is to reflect the IEEE’s contribution to current and future generations of communication networks.
Our goals are mainly to:
- publicise and support the IEEE UK and Ireland section community activities and efforts towards 5G/B5G/6G networks
- build and to connect local active Industrial and academic technical communities in Future Networks research and development.
What Next in 5G and 6G
The talk will present research and standardised needed for full-5G and based on this understanding will present a unique vision and research challenges to be addressed for 6G in Beyond 2030.

Aeronautical Ad Hoc Networking for the Internet Above the Clouds: Just Utopia or a Next-Generation Challenge?
Thanks to the spectacular advances in signal processing and nanotechnology, five wireless generations have been conceived over the past five decades. Indeed, near-capacity operation at a infinitesimally low error-rate has become feasible and flawless multimedia communications is supported in areas of high traffic-density, but how do we fill the huge coverage holes existing across the globe?
As a promising system-architecture, an integrated terrestrial, UAV-aided, airplane-assisted as well as satellite-based global coverage-solution will highlighted to pave the way for seamless next-generation service provision However, these links exhibit strongly heterogeneous properties, hence requiring different enabling techniques.
