Abstract: The Internet is evolving to an Internet of Things (IoT), whose applications are diverse, ranging from highly complex human-to-human (H2H) applications like videoconferencing to low-complexity Machine-to-Machine (M2M) or Machine Type Communications (MTC) applications like sensing and measurement reporting. As wireless communication technologies step into the fifth generation (5G), one of the major challenges faced by them is to effectively support the diverse requirements of the IoT MTC as well as the enhanced H2H applications. New technologies like massive multi-input multi-output (MIMO) systems and non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) are being considered to improve the 5G performance. From a network perspective, data caching and machine learning are being explored to improve user experience.
About the Speakers: Dr. Naveen M.B. is an assistant professor in the department of Electrical Engineering of the Indian Institute of Technology Dharwad. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada in 2017 and worked as a postdoctoral research associate at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, U.K.
Dr. Bharath B.N. is an assistant professor in the department of Electrical Engineering of the Indian Institute of Technology Dharwad. He completed his B.E. degree in Electrical and electronics from B. M. S. college of engineering in 2005. After a short stint in the industry, he joined as a direct Ph.D student in the ECE Dept. of IISc, Bangalore in 2007. The main focus of his Ph.D thesis was on channel estimation for reciprocal MIMO point-to-point and cellular communication systems.
