The Tactile Internet, an online course offered by IEEE ComSoc 

A big step lies ahead when moving from today’s 4G cellular networks to tomorrow’s 5G network.  Today the network is used for content delivery, e.g. voice, video, data.  Tomorrow, the 5G network will provide a ubiquitous Tactile Internet infrastructure for controlling and steering real and virtual objects.  For this we must create a control processing and a control communications infrastructure.  For enabling the former, distributed mobile edge cloud computing will be created at a level unheard of today.  For enabling the latter, latency and resilience requirements must be met by designing networks along new paradigms.  The resulting Tactile Internet will shape our future and our society, touching almost every part of life. 

The course starts with a high level introduction of use case and deriving the technical requirements for the Tactile Internet.  Later technical solutions are introduced that enable the Tactile Internet.  A holistic understanding of 5G technologies is presented.

Jagadish Bose frequency holds key to 5G tech 

Over a century after Jagadish Chandra Bose invented radio communication but saw Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi walk away with the credit, he is set to get his due. The millimetre wavelength frequency that Bose used in his experiment in 1895 is the foundation of 5G that scientists and technologists across the world are now trying to reinvent.
