Telecommunications for society – Smart Cities

The Gandía Campus of the Universitat Politècnica de València is organising the session “Telecommunications for society – Smart Cities” on 24 March, with the aim of publicising the latest advances that are taking place in the field of telecommunications.

Representatives of public administrations, companies in the sector, telecommunications professionals, research and teaching staff will meet on the university campus to discuss the role of technology in the city of the present and the future.

The session is aimed at students, staff from public administrations and companies, research staff, and people interested in information and communication technologies. Attendance will be in person in Conference Rooms 1 and 4 of the Gandía Campus, and is open to the general public by free registration.

The activity also has the support of the Cátedra Gandia Turismo Inteligente and the Colegio Oficial/Asociación Valenciana de Graduados e Ingenieros Técnicos de Telecomunicación (COGITCV/AGITCV).

Among the speakers will be David Gómez Barquero, professor at the Universitat Politècnica de València at the Gandia Campus and researcher at the Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications (iTEAM) who will participate in the round table “5G the cutting edge of telecommunications” as an expert in Wireless Communications Systems and 5G, in which the benefits of 5G technology and mass communication between 5G-IoT devices will be discussed, which will allow the development of new functionalities in a wide variety of sectors such as transport, smart cities, health or entertainment. Several of these use cases are currently being developed in the projects of the Mobile Communications Group thanks to the deployment of the VLC-Campus 5G I and II (here you can see the slides).
