Wireless Access Networks: An Evolution

23 September 2021, 9:30 – 10:30pm

In this lecture, Professor Tho Le-Ngoc will provide a brief overview of the evolution of wireless access communications networks, from early human-type centric communications through various generations to recent machine-type oriented communications and future connected intelligence. He will introduce various technological advances in large-scale antenna structures, intelligent signal processing, medium-access, dynamic resource allocation and agile networking. These technological advances enable cost-effective, spectrally-efficient, reliable and continuous communications in challenging dense or ultra-dense broadband wireless access networks and support the exponential growth of and demands for wireless traffic and connectivity in critical application domains including Internet of Things (IoT), intelligence transportations, health-care, energy, smart-city and many other industrial sectors.
