Frank Fitzek | 5G enabling the Tactile Internet [Slides]

Abstract: The tactile Internet will enable a global network to control and steer the Internet of Things in real time. 5G will be the first generation of mobile communication systems that will enable the tactile Internet. The talk will advocate the need for the tactile Internet and describe the need for new technologies such as network coding and compressed sensing to break with the commonly accepted trade-offs between throughput, latency, resilience, and security. The talk will also highlight the change from purely centralized architectures to meshed solutions.
