Is it Time for Time-Engineered Applications?
ABOUT: Is it Time for Time-Engineered Applications?
Industrial uses of 5G and beyond create a wide variety of very different demands beyond the media browsing and internet usage typical of consumers. In particular, machine-to-machine communications can require not only low-latency communications but also very specific-latencies to allow for closely coordinated processes such as collaborative robots, while multi-sensory experiences may demand closely-timed inputs and outputs.
3GPP’s Release 16 goes a good way towards this with developments in Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN), while Release 17 uses accurate timing to assist with more accurate positioning. Is that enough to support the different demands today and tomorrow, especially where we move beyond the factory environment, or will something more need to be an ingredient on the road to 6G?
Leading minds explore the question in this webinar; join us to find out and put your questions.
Who should listen?
Anyone involved in researching, developing and delivering next-generation networks; network architects; enterprise network specialists.
SPEAKERS & MODERATOR
Alex Lawrence is Managing Editor at 6GWorld. His mission is to bring together stakeholders from across industries, countries and disciplines to make sure that, as technology evolves in the coming decade, it’s meeting the changing demands of society, government and business.
Before 6GWorld Alex worked at the GSMA for 9 years, researching and arranging the agenda for events such as MWC in Barcelona and Shanghai as well as specialised regional conferences. He has been involved as a professional nosy person in the telecoms sphere since 2004, with short detours through industrial O&M and marketing.
If you’d like to talk to Alex about your ideas or projects he’d love to hear from you. @animalawrence or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Richard Hoptroff is Chief Time Officer (CTO) at Hoptroff, a technology scaleup that specialises in providing accurate timing solutions. Richard cofounded the company in 2016 and spends his time developing conceptual technology into essential commercial products.
Since earning his PhD in Physics at Kings College London, he has founded start-ups in forecasting software, data mining, Bluetooth radio, ASIC fabrication, high accuracy smartwatch manufacture and most recently, Traceable Time as a Service®. Some of Richard’s most seminal published works are his research in the Horological Journal, where he wrote about his experiments in creating the world’s most accurate watch.
Richard is a prolific member of multiple learned societies including the Institute of Physics, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, and the Real Time Club- the UK’s oldest technology debating society. Richard also presides over the Time Lords’ Club, a society of key engineering specialists that focus on time dissemination.
The creator of the world’s first atomic watch, Richard has since directed his attention away from providing accurate time to individuals and toward providing accurate time to industrial enterprises, using a combination of proprietary software and atomic clocks.
Mutasem Q. Hamdan received his B. Eng. from The University of Jordan as an electrical engineer in 2004. Worked internationally at many telecom infrastructure implementations for 2G/3G Motorola, NEC and Ericsson RAN technologies from 2004 to 2010. Then received his MSc in Broadband communications from Lancaster University in 2011. Joined as a solutions architect for the Handsfree Group for telematics and fleet management company at Manchester, where he worked on different telecom technologies and deployed the 4G, 4G+ Huawei, and Ericsson RAN technologies and telematics for fleets management. Then in 2018, he joined the University of Manchester as a PhD student in electrical and electronic engineering. At the end of 2021, he started working at the University of Surrey as Research Fellow in 5G and Beyond 5G Network Technology and research time synchronization reliability and resilience. In addition to Machine Learning for Open RAN Intelligent controller (RIC).
