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.
received a Ph.D. degree in queueing theory from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in 1998. Since then he has been with Ericsson Research, Kista, Sweden. He is currently a master researcher specializing in modeling, performance analysis of and protocol development for wireless access networks. He has published around 60 papers in reviewed conference proceedings and journals and holds about 50 patents (granted or pending). Since 2013 he has also been a visiting researcher at the Department of Automatic Control of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden.
