Intel Corporation, Santa Clara, CA, USA

4.1 Introduction

In this chapter we present the Intel Strategic Research Alliance (ISRA) on 5G technologies, also known as “5G: Transforming the User Experience”. ISRA 5G is a multi-university, multi-million-dollar university research program exploring the viability of new candidate technologies for tomorrow's wireless networks (also known as 5G). A major contribution of the program is its statement of vision for 5G, its goals of research and success criteria, and its scoping of the research areas needed to realize the next generation of wireless technologies. As such, the first half of the chapter focuses on Intel’s perspectives and insights on the broader challenge of candidate 5G technologies. A summary of sponsored research projects is then presented in the second half of the chapter, including information on the researchers and their proposed approaches for exploration in the program.
