389.174 Seminar Wireless Communications

Seminar Wireless Communications

Course No. 389.174 (TISS Link)
2019S, SE, 3.0h, 3.0EC

This year’s topic of the mobile communications seminar is focusing on mobility and hybrid cloud access as the enabler for wireless networks of the future. 5G networks are expected to be significantly different from today’s networks. The main requirements are: support up to 1000 times the capacity, reduce the latency of data delivery, flatten total energy consumption and finally make the network to be self-aware. These tasks will need new concepts in which capacity will follow users movements and flows rather than coverage. Other new challenges are the support of remote radio locations, radio over fibre, relays in moving mass transportation and finding new data sources to track user flows in different direction. In this lecture, we will hear talks and work on paper on the how to reach these goals.

General Information

In the first part of the seminar, university researchers present their latest research in their field in 5G and new applications as well as challenges for 5G.

In the second part of the seminar, students will read literature and research papers on antenna systems for 5G and reflect their results by their own presentations. Please choose one paper from our suggested paper list and report to Philipp Svoboda till 30.03. Papers will be assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis. Note: you can also bring your own topic/paper, the list is only a suggestion.

The round of student talks will start after the Easter holidays on Thursdays with 2-3 Students per session. A list of dates will be put online after paper registration.
