Weekly Seminar Series: “mmWaves in 5G NR cellular networks: a system level perspective”

20 September 2018 - 20 September 2018

ABSTRACT: Communication at mmWave frequencies will play a key role in next generation 5G cellular networks. However, mobile scenarios are the most challenging for mmWave cellular systems, due to the high propagation loss, the relatively small coverage area of individual cells, and rapid channel dynamics caused by blockage events. In this talk, Michele Polese will [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Feasibility of mmWave communication on dense 4G outdoor deployments”

ABSTRACT: The development of 5G cellular networks is driven by increasingly diverse requirements, such as 10-fold increase in data rates, few milliseconds latency, and a huge number of connections emerging from the rise of the Internet of Things. This 5G progress is motivating some fundamental changes in the existing architecture of the 4G cellular networks. [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Li-Fi by Lucibel: The first industrialised solution on the market”

ABSTRACT: Li-Fi (Light Fidelity) is a technology for wireless communication that uses light to provide data transmission and illumination services simultaneously. From the beginning, Li-Fi has been designed to give to the end-user a connectivity experience that is similar to Wi-Fi. Among other advantages, Li-Fi guarantees highly secured data transmissions, can be used in areas [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Graph Signal Processing”

ABSTRACT: Signal Processing has traditionally dealt with time series, images, video where data is indexed by time ticks and pixels. The structure of the indexing set is taken for granted. In the last few years, new opportunities for signal and data processing have arisen, except data is now indexed by social agents, genes, customers of [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Indoor localization and tracking: from theoretical foundations to practical applications”

This seminar is part of the Distinguished Lecturer Tour (DLT) for Spain of the Prof. Davide Dardari. ABSTRACT: The need for accurate geolocation has intensified in recent years, especially in cluttered environments (e.g., inside buildings, in urban canyons, under tree canopies, and in caves), where the global positioning system (GPS) is often inaccessible. The talk [...]
