About the symposium

Mobile communication services are indispensable in daily life to watch on-demand video streaming, to listen musics, to read news papers, and to share daily logs via social networking services. Coming 5G mobile and future wireless services will improve the connectivity and the functionality by increaase of capacities. In the era, converged technology of wireless (radio) and wireline (optical fiber) plays an important role to enhance the network connectivity. Microwave Photonics system will be a key for realization of convergence of the radio and optical technologies. This symposium focuses on MWP technologies for convergence of radio and optical technologies, future wireless services, vehicle applications, and other related technologies including the standardization activities. We hope that the symposium provides an opportunity to share recent technology and activities in this area and to discuss possible applications in future wireless services.
