Title: The Story of Mobile Networks: Wireless Communications R&D in Hong Kong
Speaker: Dr. Eddy Chiu, Manager (Wireless Systems), ASTRI


Hong Kong has one of the most advanced network infrastructures and a strong technology R&D capability. ASTRI (Applied Science and Technology Research Institute) is a Hong Kong government funded not-for-profit research institute. In this presentation, the speaker from ASTRI will first introduce the evolution of mobile networks, from 1G systems of the 1980s to 5G systems that are expected to be commercially launched around 2020. The speaker will then summarize the key milestones of ASTRI's 4G/5G R&D, which cover a number of commercialized products and pioneering technology trials. Finally, the speaker will share experience in 4G/5G systems algorithm design, hardware implementation, protocol development, and testing.

The ASTRI Communications Technologies Division is currently looking for talented fresh graduates and interns from electronic engineering and computer science disciplines. What are you doing after school? ASTRI is building the next generation network!
