#2 - Workshop on Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Wireless Communications for Machine-Type Communication


This workshop focuses on Machine-type communications (MTC), from massive connectivity to ultrareliability and low latency communications. MTC is at the core of the 5G revolution, which natively addresses MTC as massive MTC and ultra-reliable, low latency communication. Massive MTC (mMTC) tackles issues related to large number of devices, their connectivity as well as spectral and energy efficiency. On the other hand, ultra-reliable, low latency communication (URLLC) focuses on mission critical communication where high reliability and low latency communication are mandatory. Thus, enabling MTC networks operation with heterogeneous requirements -- massive connectivity, to ultra-reliability and low latency – challenges the current understanding of conventional techniques for wireless communications.
