Co-sponsored by: INRS, STARaCom, IEEE section Montréal

The energy needs for wireless systems is limiting the evolution of most of the IoT and 5G
future solutions. In this talk an overview of the energy problem in wireless communication
systems will be presented, either from a mobile network point of view, but also from a IoT
point of view. The main objective is to discuss future wireless paradigms that will be
changing soon with 5G and beyond, those include the spread of a distributed mobile network
by using Cloud Radio Access Networks, with its associated Software Defined Radio
approaches, but also the issue of battery-less wireless devices, combining wireless power
transmission and backscatter communications. The talk starts first with a general overview of
the energy needs for a future XG networks, and then presents in an integrated way both
approaches of C-RAN and IoT wireless design. The presentation will cover topics like the
hardware part of the SDR and design of battery-less wireless sensors networks. Issues like
characterization of mixed-signal devices, designing of C-RAN SDR approaches, design of
passive backscatter sensors will be discussed, according to the audience.
