The last few years have witnessed a tremendous growth of the demand for wireless services and a significant increase of the number of mobile subscribers. A recent data traffic forecast from Cisco reported that the global mobile data traffic reached 1.2 zettabytes per year in 2016, and the global IP traffic will increase nearly threefold over the next 5 years. Based on these predictions, a 127-fold increase of the IP traffic is expected from 2005 to 2021. It is also anticipated that the mobile data traffic will reach 3.3 zettabytes per year by 2021, and that the number of mobile-connected devices will reach 3.5 per capita.
With such demands for higher data rates and for better quality of service (QoS), fifth generation (5G) standardization initiatives, whose initial phase was specified in June 2018 under the umbrella of Long Term Evolution (LTE) Release 15, have been under vibrant investigation. In particular, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has identified three usage scenarios (service categories) for 5G wireless networks: (i) enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), (ii) ultra-reliable and low latency communications (uRLLC), and (iii) massive machine type communications (mMTC). The vast variety of applications for beyond 5G wireless networks has motivated the necessity of novel and more flexible physical layer (PHY) technologies, which are capable of providing higher spectral and energy efficiencies, as well as reduced transceiver implementations.

10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society
Greetings to all MD volunteers,
We are pleased to announce the details of the "MD Elevator Pitch Contest" and are encouraging recruitment and retention by personal outreach and contact. This provides everyone an opportunity to showcase their best approaches.
Contest – IEEE Recruiting and Retention Elevator Pitch for Membership
Objective: to create an interaction about IEEE
Goal: after interaction, the non-member joins or the member renews
We are looking for ideas for a "personal approach" to recruit and retain members. This concept is similar to the approach used in networking with the objective to engage the other person(s) in a dialogue about IEEE and how IEEE can be of benefit for them. Through this conversation, they will see a reason or benefit why they should become a member of IEEE.
To enter, create a 30-second and/or 1-minute "approach" about joining (new) or staying (renewal) in IEEE. (Up to a total of 4 approaches per active member.)
The best approach(es) will win a prize (4 prizes total – 2 Retention, 2 Recruitment). Prizes consist of solar powered charger and light-up mini mouse, two (2) of each item for total of four (4) prizes given out.
Enter by submitting your approach(es) in the online form found at: http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/c-downer/ieee-membership-contest/
The announcement of top selections will be made at the May 2014 MD Webcast.
Looking forward to some great approaches!
