Device-to-device Communication: From Classic to Cooperative and Social

Friday Seminar
Date and time: October 20, 2017 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Place: EIT Digital Open Area, Floor 3, Elevator C, Electrum Building, Kista
Speaker: Dr Gabor Fodor, Ericsson Research, Kista


Device-to-device communication underlaying the cellular infrastructure has been proposed
as a means of taking advantage of the physical proximity of communicating devices, increasing resource  utilization, reducing latency and improving cellular coverage. In this presentation we suggest that device-to-device communication is also a technology enabler of extending the cellular coverage   and involving end users in cellular service provisioning. We discuss the issue of incentivizing  users for taking part in cellular service provisioning as relay nodes, and how social ties between users can be utilized for creating such incentives.
