5G networks with limited services, mainly enhanced mobile broadband (emBB), are being deployed worldwide. The deployment of 5G is a turning point in the evolution of cellular networks from personal communications to a general-purpose technology. 5G networks will make possible new classes of advanced IoT applications that will bring transformative automation benefits to industry and critical infrastructure. The talk will give an overview of the main 5G benefits and its new technologies. The stringent requirements of 5G for mission critical services, such as ultrahigh reliability and low latency, have made it the most challenging feature of 5G. The talk will give an overview of recent research results on ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC) for 5G and the design of a 5G Software Defined Networks (SDN) platform with URLLC algorithms and protocols. The talk will highlight opportunities for participating in PhD research on further evolution of 5G and developing multiple new IoT services in energy grids, industrial automation and smart cities enabled by 5G connectivity.
