Abstract: The ever-growing demand for higher data speed is already driving the wireless communication technology toward the mm-wave and THz spectrum. The move from Radio Frequency (RF) to mm-wave in the upcoming next generation of mobile cellular communication (5G), backhaul, and WiGig systems are the perfect examples. These systems can ideally achieve several Gb/s data rate across tens of meters. In recent years many research works have shown the feasibility of tens of Gb/s data rates over a relatively short range. A few works have gone further to show that 100 Gb/s or even higher is achievable in a wireless link. Would a 100 Gb/s Wireless link be ever used in a product and be able to compete with other alternatives? If so, how do we get there and what are the future applications? What are the necessary conditions to make this a reality? In this panel we will have expert panelists from a variety of industry and academia backgrounds to share their views on this topic.
