Who We Are
The Wireless World Research Forum is the place where the global wireless research community meets to explore and develop the research challenges that confront us as we look beyond current 5G deployments. On the newly launched WWRF website, you can find out more about our current, future and past activities. This includes important information on upcoming events and special workshops. The ongoing effort to roll out 5G technologies, and the ongoing debate on how to meet the requirements of the various vertical industries that will make use of 5G are also being studied, with WWRF members closely involved in all these discussions, and publications such as our Outlook series are a good guide to them. But the mission of WWRF is to look beyond current technology and businesses to identify the key research trends that will impact our world in the next 5-10 years.
With over 50 members from across 4 continents, WWRF brings together a wide range of industry and academic players, and has a particular focus on the contribution of newly emerging market sectors and developing regions. As an example, the Vertical Industry Platform (VIP) programme of working groups focuses on vertical industry requirements, including business models, connected vehicles, ehealth, rail networks and the water industry, while new technical working groups have been set up to address key technology questions, such as the use of higher frequencies above 5GHz and the impact of AI technologies on communication networks. Lots of results and information from our most recent events are available, and, of course, the website also contains all the required information for prospective members, including application forms and details of membership fees and benefits.

WWRF Chairman's 2023 Review & Outlook
Dear WWRF Members,
It’s the start of a year of transition for many. Difficult economic times, but many realize that investment in research and innovation now is crucial to our future prosperity. The next generation of mobile communications is moving from exploration of visions to serious development of the key technologies. The new initiatives we have taken on membership mean that more researchers are able to be part of the WWRF family, particularly from developing regions, enabling their voices to be better heard as we work towards harnessing new intelligence in the network to meet their needs in a sustainable way.
