From Real-Time IoT to Long-lived IoT, Dr Mahmoodi, King’s College London

Friday Seminar
Date and time: February 15, 2019 10:30 AM - 12:00 AM
Place: EIT Digital Open Area, Floor 3, Elevator C, Electrum Building, Kista
Speaker: Dr Toktam Mahmoodi, CTR, King’s College London



The Internet of Things (IoT) has undergone a major transformation from a sensor-driven paradigm to one that is heavily complemented by actuators, drones and robots. On one hand, the real-time situational awareness of such active systems requires sensed data to be transmitted and control instructions to be received within short round-trip latencies. On the other hand, low-power sensor devices that can live on battery over long period are still essential to a wide range of IoT applications. While these two categories require contradicting technical solutions, they co-reside in many IoT domains. For example, in healthcare, the long-lived monitoring devices are vital for collecting diagnostic data of patients with chronic conditions while real-time robotic devices could assist medical diagnosis and interventions. This talk will discuss range of solutions in cellular network that can deliver low latency and real-time IoT as well as the low power, and long-lived IoT. The talk will further elaborate on a number of applications and ways they can be delivered through various connectivity solutions.

Dr Toktam Mahmoodi is Associate Professor in Telecommunications and Director of the Centre for Telecommunications Research (CTR) in King’s College London. Previously, she was visiting research scientist at F5 Networks, research associate in Imperial College London, Mobile VCE researcher, and telecom R&D engineer. Toktam is and has been involved in number of European FP7 and H2020 projects on 5G mobile networks, vehicular communications, and Software-defined Networking. She is executive editor of Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies, series guest editor of JSAC on network softwarization, and area editor of IEEE Communications Standard Magazine on management & orchestration. Her research focuses on the areas of mobile and cloud networking, and includes ultra-low latency networking, network virtualisation, mobility management, network modelling and optimisation. She also works on applications of mobile communications in the healthcare, smart cities, emergency services, industrial networks and intelligent transportation.
