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 [...]

Weekly Seminar: “LTE security, protocol exploits and location tracking experimentation with low-cost software radio”

ABSTRACT: The security flaws of legacy GSM networks, which lack of mutual authentication and implement an outdated encryption algorithm, are well understood among the technology community. Moreover, until now, the main cellular vulnerabilities being discovered and exploited in the mobile security research field were based on 2G base stations and GSM open source implementations. The [...]

Weekly Seminar: “2D and 3D Imaging using Ground Noise SAR”

28 February 2017 - 28 February 2017
Speaker: Prof. Konstantin Lukin, LNDES, O. Ya. Usikov Institute for Radiophysics & Electronics NAS of Ukraine

ABSTRACT: In the talk implementation of millimeter-wave SAR tomography technique based upon Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) principle with time-division of signals in Tx/Rx channels. We briefly describe MIMO operational mode for 2D aperture synthesis, which has been implemented with the help of Ka-band (36.5 GHz) Ground Based Noise Waveform SAR (GB NW SAR), and Antenna with Pattern [...]
