Abstract: After more than a decade of advanced R&D and ecosystem trials, commercial 5G mmWave service is now available in more than 55 U.S. cities and 160 areas in Japan. Looking forward, we expect 5G mmWave to expand into new geographic regions across the globe, and new device types and tiers will emerge to take full advantage of mmWave’s virtually unlimited capacity. On the research front, Qualcomm continues to push the technology boundaries of mmWave for 5G/6G by bringing new capabilities and enhancements. Join this seminar to:

  • Review the key technical achievements and milestones at Qualcomm that enabled the commercialization of 5G mmWave systems.
  • See our vision for 5G mmWave and the new opportunities it poises to bring for the broader ecosystem.
  • Learn about the mmWave capabilities and enhancements coming in 3GPP Release -17 and beyond (e.g. Integrated Access and Backhaul, 60GHz and beyond, IIOT, etc.).
  • Track the latest update on the global commercial rollout of 5G mmWave networks and devices.

Bio: Ozge Koymen is a Senior Director of Technology at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. where he has been since 2006. He has led the 5G millimeter-wave program within Qualcomm R&D since early 2015, from early conceptual evaluation to commercial deployment. His previous areas as a technical contributor includes Wireless Backhaul, Small Cells, LTE-D, LTE and UMB. Prior to Qualcomm, he was a member of Flarion Technologies developing a pioneering OFDMA cellular system, Flash-OFDM, during 2003-2006. His earlier work experience includes full-time and consulting work for Impinj, Inc. (2000-2003) and TRW (1996-2000). He received the B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 1996 and the M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1997 and 2003, respectively.
