Title: Green Radio Resource Management for next generation mobile networks
Abstract of the Talk:
The fast growth of mobile Internet, Internet of Things (IoT) and explosive emergence of smart devices have driven the existing mobile networks to their theoretical limits and imposed new research and implementation challenges to be addressed in the next generation mobile networks. The visible challenges are the explosive growth in traffic volumes, the unprecedented increase in connected wireless devices, and the wide range of QoS requirements, characteristics and mobile application use cases. To address these challenges, several advanced technologies such as massive multi-input multi-output (MIMO), cloud radio access networks (C-RAN), millimetre wave (mmWave) and device-to-device (D2D) communications have been proposed as the competent candidates to be incorporated into the mobile radio access network (RAN). Despite these technologies significantly improve the overall network performance, there is a design challenge in radio resource management to achieve better performance in the network without significant increase in energy consumption for next generation networks. In this context, this keynote outlines the vision of next generation mobile networks and discuss different energy efficient radio resource management including cell association, scheduling and interference management, and challenges associated with them.
Yue Chen is a Professor of Telecommunications Engineering in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). Yue received her BEng in Radio Engineering and MEng in Optical Communications from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT), Beijing, China, in 1997 and 2000, respectively. She received her PhD in Telecommunications from QMUL in 2003 and MBA degree from Open University, UK, in 2013. She is the QM Director of Joint Programme with BUPT, an award-wining transnational education programme highly recognised both in UK and China, which nurtures highly skilled graduates in Telecommunication, e-Commerce Engineering and Internet of Things Engineering fields. She is a Guest Professor in Wireless Communications at BUPT, a Senior Member of IEEE and an Associate Editor for the IEEE Communications Letters.
Yue has worked on many research projects, including European Union funded project SHUFFLE which focused on provision of high efficient resource allocation in wireless networks by applying artificially intelligence and European Union funded project ADAMAND on airport hotspot wireless network management and location based services. She is the co-Investigator of Project "Research on Multi Link Cooperative Diversity Based on Multimode Satellite Mobile Terminal" funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China and Project “IRENE: Improving the Robustness of Urban Electricity Networks”, funded by the ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) and the TSB (Technology Strategy Board), UK. She has also coordinated the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) Global Engagement Grant EP.K004484.1 funded by RCUK (Research Council UK) and worked on smart home test bed and wireless sensor networks.
