We had a great Friday seminar with Cicek Cavdar, KTH, where lots of industry people attended and created a great base for heated discussions.
Topic: 5GrEEn: Towards Energy-Efficient 5G Mobile Networks
Speaker: Cicek Cavdar, KTH
Abstract: In 2020, mobile access networks will experience significant challenges as compared to the situation of today. Traffic volumes are expected to increase 1000 times, and the number of connected devices will be 10-100 times higher than today in a networked society with unconstrained access to information and sharing of data available anywhere and anytime to anyone and anything. One of the big challenges is to provide this 1000-fold capacity increase to billions of devices in an affordable and sustainable way. Low energy consumption is the key to achieve this. In EIT-ICT project 5GrEEn focuses on an energy efficient 5G mobile network solution; moving the mobile systems design paradigm from being “always-on” to “always-available”.
Cicek Cavdar is working as a researcher at Wireless@kth and Communications Systems Department at the School of ICT at KTH. She has finished her Ph.D studies in Computer Science, University of California, Davis in 2008 and in Istanbul Technical University(ITU), Turkey in 2009. After her PhD, she worked as an Assistant Professor in Computer Engineering Department, ITU. Her research interests include design, performance analysis and optimization of telecom networks with focus on energy efficiency and resilience. Currently she is coordinating the EIT-ICT Labs project “5GrEEn: Towards Green 5G Mobile Networks”.
