Workshop series on Advanced Communication Systems

Overview of Layer 2 & Layer 3 Protocols and Algorithms for Open-RAN based 5G Base Station


December 17, 2022


Online (Zoom meeting)



5G is the latest broadband cellular communication standard which is promoted by 3GPP and getting deployed worldwide for sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave spectrum. 5G ensures gigabits per second throughput, ultra-reliability, and latency-sensitive network with the support for massive internet of things. To achieve the above deployment use cases, this workshop will throw some in-depth light on various Layer-2 and ayer-3 protocols and algorithms that are required to maintain the 5G QoS and QoE at the user end. This workshop also deals with Open-RAN deployment and its implications for the Layer-2 and Layer-3 algorithms.
