He is Senior Member of IEEE, co-founder of the CONASENSE (Communication, Navigation, Sensing and Services) Society, member of the Editorial boards of the International Springer Journal “Wireless Personal Communications” and “Journal of CONASENSE”, and member of the Technical Program Committees of many internationally recognized technical and scientific conferences.
Dr. Andy Hudson
The GSMA represents the interests of nearly 800 of the world’s mobile operators as well as more than 200 companies in the broader mobile ecosystem. Andy has global responsibility for the regulatory and policy aspects of the GSMA’s range of technology programmes, including future networks, IoT and identity.
Previously, he was Director of Spectrum Policy at Ofcom for three years, where he led the Mobile Data Strategy, including the release and sharing of public sector spectrum for civil use, and the 2.3/3.4 GHz auction team. Before that, Andy spent 12 years at Vodafone, where he held various senior product development, corporate strategy and public policy roles. As Head of Spectrum Policy, he was responsible for managing spectrum policy and auctions across the Vodafone Group, where he managed the acquisition or renewal of spectrum in over 20 countries for a total of €9.5bn.
He has a doctorate in Engineering Science from Oxford University and an MBA.
So, it is clear that 5G must have the flexibility to support a wide range of requirements encompassed by the variety of use cases shown.
For example, broadband access in dense areas compared to massive IoT use cases represent two ends of the spectrum.
For example, broadband access in dense areas compared to massive IoT use cases represent two ends of the spectrum (from very high bit rates in dense areas requirements for applications such as pervasive video, to very low bit rate very wide area coverage requirements for apps such as IoT sensors). Add to this the use cases focused on extreme real-time communications and ultra-reliable communications, and many more requirements for 5G arise.”
