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
The Signal Processing Society (SPS) has 13 Technical Committees and 2 Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that support a broad selection of signal processing-related activities defined by the scope of the Society. Technical Committees and Special Interest Groups are actively involved in awards, conferences, publications, and educational activities, and provide technical advice to the Society's leadership. Learn more about the Signal Processing Society Technical Committees by visiting the TC webpage and Special Interest Groups by visiting the SIG webpage.
The Signal Processing Society and its Technical Committees revised its bylaws and policies and procedures a few years ago. As a result of these changes, the Society’s Technical Committees now have the opportunity to expand their membership base by adding Technical Committee Affiliate Members. Technical Committee Affiliate Members are non-elected, non-voting members of the Technical Committee. There is no limit to the number of Affiliate Members that a Technical Committee can have. Affiliate membership is open to:
Technical Committee Affiliate Members will receive calls for Member and Vice Chair nominations, as well as any eNewsletter the Technical Committee may have. Technical Committee Affiliate Members also have the opportunity to act as reviewers for one of the Society’s conferences or be appointed to one of the Technical Committee’s subcommittees.
Becoming a Technical Committee Affiliate Member is easy, just visit this website and request Affiliate Membership. Sign up today and pass on this news to interested colleagues!
