Industry Session Program
Abstract: The talk will review briefly wireless mobile system evolution from 2G to 5G in terms of new capabilities and delivery media and then present how teleportation can be enabled as the next step of media delivery. The transformative impact of teleportation in various industries such as manufacturing, health, gaming, and education will be part of this talk.
Abstract: Thanks to the spectacular advances in signal processing and nano-technology, five wireless generations have been conceived over the past five decades. Indeed, near-capacity operation at an infinitesimally low error-rate has become feasible and flawless multimedia communications is supported in areas of high traffic-density, but how do we fill the huge coverage holes existing across the globe? As a promising system-architecture, an integrated terrestrial, UAV-aided, airplane-assisted as well as satellite-based global coverage-solution will be highlighted to pave the way for seamless next-generation service provision. However, these links exhibit strongly heterogeneous properties, hence requiring different enabling techniques. The joint optimization of the associated conflicting performance metrics of throughput, transmit power, latency, error probability, hand-over probability and link-lifetime poses an extremely challenging problem. Explicitly, sophisticated multi-component system optimization is required for finding the Pareto-front of all optimal solutions, where none of the above-mentioned metric can be improved without degrading at least one of the others...
Abstract: This short talk will start with an introduction to CONNECT, the Irish national centre for research in future networks and communications. The Centre’s research plans will be explained, along with opportunities for industry engagement. To conclude, some recent case studies of industry research collaboration will be reviewed.
Abstract: Mobile communications have now evolved to become National Critical Infrastructure. The way networks are built is undergoing a revolution with virtualisation and open architectures. Taking an operator’s perspective, Paul will outline the predicted needs for future telecommunications networks and the challenges this represents to the technical community.
