Title of Topic: The Future Trend of Telecommunication Technology: Industrial Revolution and D2D Communication in 5G/6G Networks

Lately, there has been a lot of interest in the future trend of telecommunication technology which is the fifth generation (5G) and sixth generation (6G) on this series of wireless communication. As everyone know, in a conventional cellular system, devices are not allowed to directly communicate with each other in the licensed cellular bandwidth and all communications take place through the base stations. This aim of this talk is to introduce the concepts of 5G/6G wireless network which is Device-to-Device (D2D) communication in cellular networks, which is defined as direct communication between two mobile users without traversing the Base Station (BS) or core network. D2D communication is generally non-transparent to the cellular network and it can occur on the cellular frequencies such as inband or unlicensed spectrum such as outband. Furthermore, the 6G communication system is expected to be a global communication facility. The 6G system is expected to provide simultaneous wireless connectivity that is 1000 times higher than 5G. Moreover, ultra-long-range communication with less than 1- ms latency.
