Keynote1: Wireless Network Systems as Key Enabling Technology for Smart Homes and Cities and Samples of our Related Recent Works
Prof. Mohammad S. Obaidat, Monmouth University, USA
Room: Panorama

Abstract

Digital and smart homes and cities have become an important research and development area in the 21st century due mainly to their significance to national and international health, economy, safety, transportation, and security, among others. ICT Systems have played a vital role in the emergence and development of smart cities and homes. The impressive advances in areas of information and wired and wireless communications technology have brought with them the prospect of embedding different hierarchies of smartness and intelligence in the modern home and cities. Offering comfort and safe and healthy living with an intelligent form of collaboration with their residents has been the prime goal of smart and digital homes and cities. Contingent upon the settings, the communications may be multifaceted such as mobile agent based and context-aware services or they may be uncomplicated such as controlling the room temperature or its humidity level. Sophisticated situations include the delivery of position/location-aware info content of the resident of the digital home as well as his/her activities. The availability of inexpensive low-power sensors, the RF IC chips, and the embedded microprocessors/ microcontrollers have made tremendous impact on digital homes and cities; with large quantity of sensors, which jointly manage and make the inferences from the collected data on the state of the home and city as well as the actions and behavior of the inhabitants. As the worldwide life expectancy, especially in developed countries and newly industrialized counties is increasing, the percentage of senior/elderly citizens is increasing at an accelerated pace and most projections suggest that this increase worldwide will reach about 10 millions in the coming decade. Senior citizens usually live in care centers, hospitals or their own homes with some relative supervision/care. Smart homes and cities can be used efficiently and economically in order to accommodate the needs of this population. The increase of worldwide population, especially in populous countries and cities and the increase migration of citizens to cities have also brought with it challenges in transportation systems, health care, utility's supplies, learning & education, sensing city dynamics, computing with heterogeneous data sources, managing urban big data, and environmental protection including pollution and others. In this keynote, we will shed some light on the roles of Wireless Networks as a key enabling Information and Communications technology to smart cities and homes. We will also investigate the advances, current trends, challenges and future in the research and development in smart homes and cities. Some of our recent research results, especially the ones related to the use of wireless networks and security for smart and digital homes will be presented. Among these, fire detection schemes in forests. An intelligent system for fire prediction based on wireless sensor networks is presented. This system obtains the probability of fire and fire behavior in a particular area. This information allows firefighters to obtain escape paths and determine strategies to fight the fire. A firefighter can access this information with a portable device on every node of the network. Also, we will introduce an adaptive MAC protocol for distributed wireless LANs that is capable of operating efficiently under bursty traffic conditions. According to the proposed protocol, the mobile station that is granted permission to transmit is selected by means of a neural-based algorithm. Another new protocol for dynamically setting 802.11 wireless LAN waveforms and transmission power levels based on the wireless channel's signal to noise ratio will be introduced. Our method, known as Signal-to-Noise Ratio-Waveform Power Adaptation (SNR-WPA), changes the power in discrete steps matched to each of the 802.11 data rate-waveform steps. By matching the power to the spreading symbol rate, our technique maximizes the network throughput while minimizing MAC layer contention. We present other new schemes to authenticate and authorize 802.11 wireless nodes within a network. This new layer of security relies on a neural network decision engine that restricts network access to mobile nodes whose physical location is within a threshold distance from the wireless access point or the controller of the network. Other related wireless research efforts by our group will be presented.

Keynote2: 5G as an End-to-End Vision
Dr. Markus Gruber, Nokia Bell Labs, Germany
Room: Panorama

Abstract

This talk will discuss the Nokia end-to-end vision of how networks will evolve towards a new digital era. We will start with an introduction to the Nokia Future X architecture and how we create a cloud-integrated network. However, it is not only the evolving cloud infrastructure, but also the other additional degrees of freedom of 5G and their resulting daunting complexity that require dramatic improvements in network automation. In order to achieve seemingly infinite scalability in this environment, information and contextualization will play a pivotal role. From a business perspective, 5G will be the enabler platform for Industry 4.0 in which multiple dimensions of sensing and connectivity are embedded in billions of objects.

Biography

Markus Gruber manages the Radio Network Automation Department within the End-to-End Network & Service Automation Lab of Nokia Bell Labs. He received a diploma degree in electrical engineering and information technology from the University of Stuttgart and a diploma degree in telecommunications from the École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Paris, in 2002. Markus then joined the Max Planck Society and received a PhD in computer science from the University of Tübingen in 2006. Ever since he has been with Nokia (formerly Alcatel-Lucent) where he did research on self-organizing networks and their advancements in future networks. He contributed to 3GPP standardization, worked in various European projects, and is one of the organizers of the annual workshop IWSON.
