Seminar Title: A Tutorial on the 5G Ecosystem and Research Challenges
Presenter: A/Prof Kumbesan Sandrasegaran
Time: 14:00, Thursday, 02/03/2017
Room: 105B1 (Phong Chuyen De Khoa Dien)
Abstract: 5G is the term currently used to collectively describe the next-generation of mobile networks beyond the 4G LTE and LTE-Advanced mobile networks. Early standards for 5G are expected to be released in 2017 by the ITU through the International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT)-2020 framework. Standard bodies worldwide along with mobile operators and vendors are actively participating in the standardization process. It is expected that 5G networks will become commercially available by 2020.
In the first part of the presentation, I will provide an introduction to 5G Mobile Communication including the evolution to 5G from 4G followed by 5G enabling technologies such as LTE and NX, Carrier Aggregation, COMP, HetNets, Relaying, D2D, SDN, SDR , Cloud RAN, etc., and some early trials . In the second part of the presentation, I will present some of the research challenges facing 5G mobile networks.
Associate Professor Kumbesan Sandrasegaran (Sandy) is currently employed at University of Technology Sydney, Australia. He holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from McGill University (Canada), a Master of Science Degree in Telecommunication Engineering and a Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree in Electrical Engineering (First Class). He was a recipient of the Canadian Commonwealth Fellowship (1990-1994) and British Council Scholarship (1987-1988). Sandy has more than 35 years’ experience working as researcher, consultant and educator in Telecommunication and Mobile Networks. He has published widely with over 100 refereed publications and 2 patents. Dr Sandrasegaran has an outstanding teaching record at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and course development in Communication Networks, Wireless Networks, GSM, GPRS, 3G and 4G Mobile Communications. He also has considerable consulting experience with NOKIA, Alcatel and HP, as well as running industry short courses in the Mobile Networks. At present, he teaches 42890 4G Mobile Communications, 49110 3G Mobile Communication and 49048 Wireless Networks at UTS.
1. Radio Resource Management: The overall goal of this project is to develop and evaluate a set of Radio Resource Management (RRM) mechanisms for future wireless networks.
2. Mobile Tracking Project: The aim of this is to track the movement of pedestrians using Wi-Fi enabled mobile phones in indoor and outdoor environments where GPS is not accurate..
3 New technologies for remote sensing and smart monitoring of water quality and development of next generation water quality loggers.
