Communications Technologies for 2020 and Beyond: An Energy-Efficient Perspective with Application to Internet of Things

May 12, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Abstract: By the year 2022, Fifth Generation (5G) wireless networks are expected to provide a new paradigm over the existing networks. The targets for 5G include: 10,000 times increase in traffic data, 10-100 times more devices, low latency in the order of 1msec, more uniform coverage providing a minimum of 1Gbps for every user, flexible operation in different radio access technologies, reliable end-to-end performance, low cost and energy efficient design. As in 5G networks millions more base stations are expected…

Abstract: Cloud radio access network (C-RAN) is an emerging wireless cellullar architecture in which the base-stations (BSs) take advantage of high-capacity backhaul links to upload signal processing and computation to a cloud-computing based central processor. The C-RAN architecture offers an enabling platform for the centralized joint encoding and joint decoding of user messages and a capability for intercell interference mitigation across the BSs. In this talk, we address the capacity analysis and optimization technique for C-RAN while specifically taking into…

IEEE 5G Summit Seattle

November 5, 2016

Recently, IEEE Communications Society has developed a strategic framework based on the principles that embrace Industry's interests and priorities while integrating IEEE and ComSoc's objectives. In order to engage industry members with high value and innovative technologies, IEEE Communications Society plans to hold a series of high impact one day Summits in emerging technology areas (e.g., SDN/NFV, 5G, IoT, Big Data, and Cybersecurity). The first summit was held at Princeton University in May 2015 (see photos, slides, and videos) followed…

Today’s communication networks are highly complex, carry heterogeneous traffic in diverse environments, and are often owned by multiple profit-making entities. To successfully maintain, optimize, and upgrade such large distributed networks, it is important to design new economic incentive mechanisms as well as develop new technologies. The market deregulation of the telecommunication industry in many countries makes such economic consideration even more urgent, as there are often conflicting goals between the regulators and the commercial operators. We will first illustrate how…

Speaker: Eric Black, Ph.D., CTO of Bellevue-based Pivotal Commware Abstract: In this presentation, Eric will describe his company’s software-defined antennas that use Holographic Beam Forming™ to increase network speed, capacity and spectral efficiency.  HBF represents a breakthrough in electro-magnetic physics that offers the lowest cost, size, weight and power (C-SWaP) envelope available. Beamforming will play a critical role in 5G deployments, and Eric will compare Holographic Beam Forming to MIMO and phased array technologies. His presentation will be based on…
