This Friday we are honoured to have professor Mischa Dohler as our Friday seminar speaker:
Title: “Machine-to-Machine Communications in 5G”
Abstract: A hyper-connected cyber-physical world, by some touted as the 4th Industrial Revolution with unprecedented economic and social opportunities, will heavily rely on a machine-to-machine (M2M) paradigm. It refers to the ability of machines to communicate with one another without human intervention. If predictions are to be believed, we will have some 50bn devices “speaking” to each other by 2020. This paradigm, however, will come along with networking; data delivery; and economic challenges, which will be discussed in great details by this talk. In more details, I will expose latest developments in 5G design so that M2M networking requirements in terms of scalability, availability and delay in access & core networks are met.
