Welcome to the WWRF web site!

The WWRF website is the place to find out more about our current, future and past activities. This includes important information on upcoming events such as the 2016 5G Huddle which will take place on 26-27 April in London, with the theme ‘Making the Vision a Reality’. Globally there is a rush of activity in development and experimentation with 5G technologies, and an ongoing debate as to how to meet the requirements of the various vertical industries that will make use of 5G. WWRF members are closely involved in all these discussions, and publications such as our Outlook series are a good guide to them.

The Forum

Join WWRF as a member

In addition to the VIP programme of working groups focused on vertical industry requirements, new working groups are being set up to address key technology questions, such as the use of higher frequencies above 5GHz and the application of network slicing to 5G networks. Discussion of these questions will be a highlight of our next WWRF meeting, WWRF36 in Beijing in early June, which would be a great place to introduce your organization to WWRF if you are not already a member. Of course, the website also contains all the required information for prospective members, including form and details of membership fees and benefits.

WWRF 5G Huddle

WWRF recently held its 3rd Huddle in London. The theme was "Making the Vision a Reality". It was well attended. The focus of this Huddle was more on verticals that in future will be using the 5G technology. As one delegate said, " The 5G huddle in 2016 was really one of the most comprehensive and informative events on 5G. The span of the political, technical and consumer-oriented perspective indicated the large impact of 5G to our all live and provided profound information about the challenges ahead". Wendy Grossman, a blogger based in UK provided this. Wendy is a freelance blogger.>>>
