Weekly Seminar: “OTFS: A New Generation of Modulation Addressing the Challenges of 5G”

18 July 2017 - 18 July 2017
Speaker: Christian Ibars Casas, Cohere Technologies (USA)

ABSTRACT: A new two-dimensional modulation technique called Orthogonal Time Frequency Space (OTFS) modulation designed in the delay-Doppler domain is introduced as a waveform ideally suited to new 5G use cases. Through this design, which exploits full diversity over time and frequency, OTFS coupled with equalization converts the fading, time-varying wireless channel experienced by modulated signals [...]

Weekly Seminar: “Two Ideas for Low Cost Mobile Edge Caching: Modeling and Optimization”

11 May 2017 - 11 May 2017

ABSTRACT: Pushing popular content to small cells (often referred to as “helper” nodes) during off-peak hours has recently been proposed to cope with the increase in mobile data traffic. User requests can be served locally from these helper nodes, reducing the backhaul/core load for the operator as well as improving user QoE. Nevertheless, size limitations [...]
