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.

The marriage of ever-more sophisticated signal processing and wireless communications has led to compelling “tele-presence” solutions—at the touch of a dialing key.
However, the “quantum” leaps in both digital signal processing theory and in its nanoscale-based implementation is set to depart from classical physics obeying the well-understood laws revealed by science. We embark on a journey into the weird and wonderful world of quantum-physics, where the traveler has to obey the often-strange new rules of the quantum-world.
Hence, we ask the judicious question: can the marriage of applied signal processing and communications be extended beyond the classical world into the quantum world?
The quest for quantum-domain communication solutions was inspired by Feynman’s revolutionary idea in 1985: information-bearing bits can be mapped to particles such as photons or to the spin as well as to the charge of electrons for encoding, processing, and delivering information.
Against the backdrop of numerous open-research questions, this presentation will explore some of the topical problems in both quantum-computing-aided as well as in quantum-domain signal processing and communications. Commencing with a brief historical perspective, a variety of efficient quantum-assisted solutions will be exemplified. We will also discuss how the isomorphism of classic and quantum codes may be exploited for mitigating the hostile effects of quantum-de-coherence, which results in quantum-bit flips.
Lajos Hanzo (FREng, FIEEE, FIET, RS Wolfson Fellow) received his five-year Master’s degree in electronics from the Technical University of Budapest in 1976, his doctorate in 1983, and his Doctor of Sciences (DSc) degree in 2004. During his career in telecommunications, he has held various research and academic posts in Hungary, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Since 1986, he has been with the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, UK, where he holds the Chair in Telecommunications.
