About ComSoc

The aim of this Emerging Technology Initiative (ETI) is to foster research and innovation surrounding the use of machine learning (ML) for the physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) layers for all types of communication systems, such as wireless, optical, satellite, and molecular. We provide a list of Best Readings in MLC for newcomers and organize conference workshops, tracks, sessions, industry symposia, tutorials, summer schools, data science competitions, as well as special issues in journals. We aim to establish common data sets and related benchmarks and invite authors to open-source their code for reproducible research. We maintain a blog where members can write articles, opinions, perspectives or present their research in an accessible way.

Strengthening the Backbone for 5G and Beyond

This month we take a look at the optical transmission that without which all of the fancy wireless systems would not be able to access the internet. The bandwidth pressure on the optical backbone will be at least as intense as it is on the wireless access. But never fear, the engineers in this area are also making strides. So this month we hear from Kevin and Yu Rong at British Telecom on their recent successful trial of a 3Tb/s super channel, as well as some of their thoughts on the future for optical networking.
