Fixing the Broken Telephone – A Case for Channel Coding in 5G

In this presentation we provide an overview into the current standardization effort for 5G with a specific focus on the high profile area of channel coding selection. We start with an overview of what 5G is and where it comes from. We then take a shallow dive into channel coding, relating it to real world examples you may not have considered as forms of coding, before moving to some details of the current Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) proposals. Lastly we present how 3GPP works to standardize 5G and what the current status is for the topic of channel coding/multiplexing.
