Wireless Congress 2016: Systems & Applications

9.-10. November 2016, Munich, Germany


Wireless Congress 2016 – Wireless for Wide Area with Low Power

Wireless IoT is still an outstanding topic for the industry. Several new wireless technologies for low power wide area networking start competing for industrial users and applications - using the SubGHz ISM bands, building new networks with own base stations, or using the existing LTE networks. The underlying technologies might be very different, but the M2M use cases are partially similar. However, it leaves the designer with the question about his best choice.

This year’s Wireless Congress program will focus on the new technologies and trends for LPWAN – like LTE-Cat-NB1, Lora, Sigfox and Weightless.

In the panel discussion "Low Power Wide Area Networks for Industrial IoT – Licensed versus Unlicensed Bands?” experts from network operators and from the wireless industry will discuss chances and challenges for low power M2M-communication technologies.

Panel Discussion:

Simon Glassman, u-blox

Hamid-Reza Nazeman, Qualcomm

Jonathan Pearce, Microchip

Fabien Petitgrand, Ubiik

Tobin Richardson, ZigBee Alliance

Prof. Dr. Axel Sikora, HS Offenburg/Hahn-Schickard


The congress program 2016 will also focus on: mobile radio communication, RF technologies, energy harvesting, wireless power, PAN, WLAN, RFID, NFC, wireless testing and standardization, long range technologies and localisation.

Also, all relevant wireless technologies will be present at the Wireless Congress 2016, with their newest solutions and experts, from A to Z, with dedicated sessions and tutorials for: Bluetooth, EnOcean, IP500, KNX RF, LoRa, Thread, ULE, ZigBee, Z-Wave and 6LoWPAN.

With the congress program we continue to widen the scope of wireless technologies for developers, system designers, technology decision-makers, project managers and wireless system authorities to meet experts from the wireless industry, researchers and scientists.

The Wireless Congress 2016 will give a comprehensive overview of current wireless standards, protocols and applications, safety and security aspects, system design tips, technology enhancements, standardisation and market opportunities. There will be 65 presentations, 2 keynotes and 9 tutorials in 2 days.

We are very much looking forward to meet you in Munich for the Wireless Congress 2016: Systems & Applications.

The magazine Elektronik, Messe München – organizers of the electronica trade fair – and the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association (ZVEI) are  staging the congress on November 9-10, 2016 in Munich, International Congress Center, in parallel and next to electronica trade fair.

Special: Antenna Workshop (Tutorial 05)

The attendees will receive 3 free samples of flex PCB antennas from Antenova:
one GPS/Glonass antenna , one 2,4/5GHz WiFi antenna and one GSM/UMTS antenna.

They also can bring their own device to the tutorial for testing and verification.
