You are Invited to a Webcast - Coexistence of S-band Radar and Mobile Networks

You are Invited to a Webcast - Coexistence of S-band Radar and Mobile Networks
 
Join us for a webcast to explore the implementation of LTE technology in the S-band (2-4 GHz) and the challenges of coexistence with radar systems, particularly Air Traffic Control (ATC) radars. A critical look at the vulnerabilities of LTE systems is reviewed and the real modes of typical S-Band radars are examined.
 
A method of analysis is proposed for the assessment of network performance in the presence of a radar and conversely the radar performance in the presence of a cellular network. Using these analysis methods, real-world and synthetic radar signals are demonstrated against an emulated cellular network environment to show the impact on network performance.
 
Further, the results of a study on the impact of an ATC radar is shown in the presence of a simulated mobile network environment. Not only are coexistence studies important to assess against common S-band systems such as Air Traffic Control Radars and Navy Air Surveillance Radar, but future spectrum allocation studies for C-band studies and LTE-U technology.
 
This Webcast examines methods of assessment for studying ongoing issues of mobile network and radar coexistence.

Introducing 2017 New Journal! IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking

Introducing 2017 New Journal! IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking

IEEE JSAC Series on Green Communications and Networking (JSAC-SGCN) is now IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking (TGCN)! The three issues of JSAC-SGCN received a very large number of submissions and the two issues published so far have substantially more papers than any other JSAC issues in recent history. As a result, IEEE has launched the new journal IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking. Co-sponsored by the IEEE Communications, Signal Processing, and Vehicular Technology Societies, the journal will be published in an online-only format on a quarterly basis with the first issue scheduled to be published March 2017.

The goal of this journal is to advance and promote significant technology advances in green communications and networks including wireline, optical, and wireless communications and networks. Green communications and networking in this context means sustainable, energy-efficient, energy-aware, and environmentally aware communications and networking. The journal will promote innovations, new technologies, concepts, and principles toward a sustainable information and communications technology.

Call For Papers

We invite submissions of high-quality manuscripts in the area of green communications and networking. We are seeking papers which have not been published and are not currently under review by any journal. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Green wireline, optical, and wireless communications and networks;
  • Network and physical layer design, strategies, algorithms, protocols, and scheduling that consider environmental factors;
  • Energy-efficient and energy-aware heterogeneous networks, self-organized, and low-power sensor networks;
  • Energy efficiency in machine-to-machine communications, cooperative communications, and  smart grid networks;
  • Energy harvesting, storage, and recycling for network cross-layer optimization;
  • Environmentally-aware designs of communications and networking devices and systems;
  • Communications and networking for environmental protection monitoring. 

Prospective authors should prepare their submissions in accordance with the rules specified in the “Information for Authors” section of the TGCN guidelines. The paper should be compiled as a PDF file and uploaded to mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tgcn.
