Real-time Prototyping of 5G Software Defined Networks
Available on Demand

Software defined networks (SDN) have been identified as an enabling technology for future 5G wireless networks. And while the promises of SDNs are great and many, further experimental studies must be performed to better understand the challenges and limitations associated with the development of such systems at all levels of the communication stack. With a deeper understanding of the implementation challenges and problems, researchers can then begin to create novel solutions that go beyond just computer-based simulations to fully functional real-time prototypes that operate under real-world wireless channel conditions.
In this webinar, attendees will learn more about the National Instruments MAC/PHY prototyping system which includes a flexible hardware and software reference architecture complete with a real-time and fully modifiable upper layer stack and PHY layer that enables wireless researchers to rapidly prototype SDNs that communicate over real-world wireless channels.
Dr. Douglas Kim
Advanced Platform Solutions Group
As a senior member of the Advanced Platform Solutions group at National Instruments, Dr. Kim has partnered with wireless industry leaders including Nokia and Samsung in the development of advanced 5G applications including mmWave and Massive MIMO access technologies. Building upon the success of industry partnerships, Dr. Kim now serves as Senior Product Marketing Manager of SDR Application Frameworks, defining new real-time FPGA architectures and signal processing IP for the broader wireless research community. He holds a BSEE and Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Dallas.
Dr. Nicola Michailow
Dr. Michailow received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from Technische Universität Dresden in 2010. From 2008 to 2009 he worked at Asahi Kasei Corporation, Japan, developing signal processing algorithms for acceleration sensor data analysis. Since 2010, he has been research associate at the Vodafone Chair at Technische Universität Dresden, receiving the Dr.-Ing. degree in 2015. Since 2015, he is with National Instruments, conducting research on a flexible MAC/PHY interface for future 5G cellular systems. He has participated in multiple national and European funded research projects, including 5GNOW, CREW, FAST and ORCA.
