“Cellular Internet of things – MTC integration with the Future Cellular Networks”

Friday Seminar
Date and time: March 11, 2016 14.30 - 16.00
Place: Wireless@kth/EIT Digital co-location centre, Isafjordsgatan 26, Electrum building, Floor 3, elevator C
Speaker: Emre Yavuz

The Internet of Things (IoT) will provide Internet access to massive numbers of everyday objects; it is an enabler in our transition towards a Networked Society. Cellular networks will play a significant role in providing wireless connectivity for the IoT with new forms of Machine-Type Communications (MTC). These new use cases put new requirements on future cellular networks, e.g. with respect to device cost, battery lifetime, and coverage. This presentation provides an overview about MTC features and capabilities, that address MTC requirements such as battery-powered device operation over many years, device battery lifetimes, low device costs and ubiquitous coverage also in challenging locations. It will give an overview of standardization status for today’s networks to integrate with the MTC.

Speaker is Emre Yavuz, 3GPP Standardization Delegate from Ericsson.


Emre A. Yavuz received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical & Electronics Engineering at METU in Ankara, Turkey in 1995 and 1998, respectively. He was a Software Engineer with Alcatel in Toronto developing safety critical real-time microprocessor firmware for embedded command, control, and communication applications in automated train systems from 1999 to 2001. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering at The University of British Columbia in Vancouver in 2007. He worked as a technical consultant from 2007 to 2009 prior to joining the School of Electrical Engineering at KTH in Stockholm as a post-doctoral fellow. He is now with Ericsson AB for Research & Development in LTE Systems serving as a delegate in 3GPP for standardizations.
