Wireless systems and wireless networks are key technologies to enable the Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, mobile communication and a smarter world. The advanced wireless innovations address novel features and characteristics, new functionalities and applications with differing focuses on long range, high data rate, low latency, ultra-low energy, reliability, security and safety. Current wireless technologies are undergoing refinements that will allow them to meet present and future requirements. At the same time, new systems are also being developed to allow new possibilities. Designers, developers and system engineers need information and know how to stay up to date in the rapidly progressing and changing wireless world. Wireless Congress is the forum of excellence for exchange of knowledge and experience among wireless professionals in research, development and application.
