A Workshop by Experts on Evolving Landscape of In-building Wireless Solutions

A Workshop by Experts on Evolving Landscape of In-building Wireless Solutions
 
Dear Colleague:
 
IEEE Princeton Central Jersey Section and IEEE Communications Society PCJS is pleased to announce a workshop to address In-Building Wireless Solutions and Services, which will be held November 14, at Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center, New Brunswick, NJ. 
 
The role of wireless technologies such 5G, LTE, WiFi, advanced DAS, small cells, indoor CPRI, Radio over Ethernet, and others to augment coverage and capacity will be addressed. The use of SDN/NFV for faster introduction of new services at lower deployment cost to enable delivery of value added services will also be considered. This presents an emerging opportunity for operators to work with venue owners, leverage IoT and an open collaborative environment for compelling ROI for new vertical-specific services. The day-long workshop will bring together the entire ecosystem – service providers, system OEMs, silicon, software and solution providers, analysts as well as members from academia and user community - to address opportunities and challenges. 
 
We invite you to attend and participate in this unique workshop to hear from experts and be informed about the evolving landscape of in-building wireless solutions, technologies, deployment use cases and business models for this emerging market.

27 October Live Webinar: 5G Radio Interface Technologies

27 October Live Webinar: 5G Radio Interface Technologies
 
5G Radio Interface Technologies:
Collaboration, Co-Existence or Competition
 
The wireless industry is highly focused today on designing the next generation of mobile communications technology for 5G, where the Living Network is expected to have a transformative effect across many vertical industries. In contrast with previous generations, 5G networks are likely to be composed of multiple radio technologies in order to address the broad range of use cases and their diverging requirements. With 5G design efforts already underway across a number of standards bodies and industry forums, it remains unclear what the final mix of candidate radio technologies will make it to 5G networks. 3GPP, for example, has recently initiated standardization efforts for a New Radio (NR) for 5G which will likely coexist alongside the evolution of LTE-Advanced Pro and Narrow Band IoT technologies. Likewise, IEEE continues to evolve 802.11 technology through new study and task groups that are defining enhancements that are expected to address some of the 5G use cases and requirements.   
 
This webinar will bring together a panel of industry experts in 5G radio access design to discuss their views on how candidate 5G radio technologies can either collaborate, coexist or even compete against each other in forming 5G networks of the future.

Register Now for the 31 October Live Webinar - Performance Requirements for 5G Antennas

IEEE ComSoc Live Webinar
 
Monday, 31 October 2016 
1:00 PM EDT
 
Emerging 5G designs will have to handle a wide range of frequencies, from today’s 3G bands up to the 70 GHz range and beyond. They will also need to deal with an equally wide range of approaches for making the most efficient use of existing and expanded bandwidth, from flexible short-range device-to-device communication, shifting frequencies to adapt to conditions, and strategies like beamforming and MIMO. So, among other challenges, designers will have to devise antennas that are compact enough to fit into handheld devices or compact base stations, flexible enough to respond to a much wider variety of frequencies over short and long distances, and smart enough to accommodate both low-data-rate spatial multiplexing (MIMO) and antenna arrays that can shape signals to deliver high data rates to a single receiver in a crowd.

IEEE ComSoc New York Chapter Hosts Technical Session - Wireless Content Delivery in Crowded Areas

IEEE ComSoc New York Chapter Hosts Technical Session - Wireless Content Delivery in Crowded Areas
 
SpeakerIEEE Communications Society New York Chapter invites you to a technical session "Wireless Content Delivery in Crowded Areas” on October 27th at 6:30 PM EDT in Con Edison building, New York City.
 
The talk will be presented by Varun Gupta, who is currently working towards his Ph.D. at Columbia University. His research interests include network performance evaluation, stochastic modeling, wireless networks, and data center networks. Varun Gupta completed his undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering at IIT Delhi and received his M.S. in Electrical Engineering at Columbia University in October 2012.
 
“Wireless Content Delivery in Crowded Areas” is based on Varun Gupta’s joint work with Dr. Yigal Bejerano (Bell Labs, Nokia), Craig Gutterman (Columbia University), Prof. Gil Zussman (Columbia University), Dr. Katherine Guo (Bell Labs, Nokia), Dr. Thyaga Nandagopal (NSF), Dr. Chandru Raman (Bell Labs, Nokia), Dr. Chun-Nam Yu (Bell Labs, Nokia).
 
With the ever-growing number of mobile devices, content delivery in crowded areas has emerged as an important problem. Most of the existing solutions are based on dense deployments of Access Points (APs) or Base Stations (BSs) and require considerable capital and operational expenditure. Multicast offers another approach in scenarios where users are interested in venue-specific content. Yet, most recently proposed schemes for wireless multicast do not provide performance guarantees, due primarily to the difficulty in monitoring and managing wireless multicast.


 
This session will present the Adaptive Multicast Services (AMuSe) system, whose objective is to enable scalable and adaptive wireless multicast services. AMuSe includes a light-weight feedback mechanism that allows monitoring channel quality of a large number of users. This feedback allows the system to dynamically optimize several parameters such as link-layer transmission rate, application layer rate, and error correction. 


 
Varun Gupta will present the system design of AMuSe and the implementation and evaluation of the system at scale with 250 WiFi nodes at the ORBIT testbed. Further, he will briefly discuss theoretically optimal algorithms for video delivery over WiFi multicast and their implementation on commodity hardware such as Android devices. Finally, he will discuss recent extensions of the AMuSe system for monitoring LTE networks with hundreds or thousands of devices which can find applications in monitoring emerging IoT networks and D2D communications.

This session will be held in Conference Room 6C at 4 Irving Place (Con Ed HQ), near Union Square, on Thursday 10/27. We will meet you downstairs at 6:00PM. The session starts at 6:30 PM Sharp.

For Security - Attendees must send their names and affiliations by email to Praveen (pkhethavath@lagcc.cuny.eduno later than noon Wednesday 10/26. Entry to the building requires Government issued ID.

Chair: Warner Sharkey, P.E., cruisingsailor@ieee.org

Live Webinar on 18 October: Massive Signal Processing for Massive MIMO

Live Webinar on 18 October: Massive Signal Processing for Massive MIMO
 
Join us for a live webinar!

In the coming years, telecommunications providers face the daunting challenge of increasing data rates while also expanding network capacity by orders of magnitude. High channel count MIMO technologies such as Massive MIMO offer unique benefits that can address these concerns and enable 5G networks. To move Massive MIMO from theory to reality, however, advanced hardware must be combined with challenging signal processing.

In this webinar, we will go over the creation of the world’s first real-time Massive MIMO system at Lund University, Sweden. This successful deployment produced a host of field trial results, but also revealed new challenges in Massive MIMO development. We will cover lessons learned from the Lund system while also diving deep into the signal processing used, including reciprocity calibration, MIMO precoding, and MIMO decoding. Finally, we will discuss the future of Massive MIMO research and standardization. Join us to learn how you can begin building your own Massive MIMO testbed to tackle these challenges.
