Abstract Keynote

Fast and Secure Industry Wireless LAN
It is amazingly inceasing the usage of industry robot such as in automobile assembly lines.Wire-connection networks, ie.industry Ethernet, have been used for such robot control so far. For the recent demand of maintainanse-free and location-free-setup, wireless networks are required for industry robot control, However, the conventional WiFi PCF protocal cannot support industry Ethernet specifications such as low latency, e.g. less than 0.1 msec and error-free communication requirement for human being secure purpose. This talk will present a novel fast and secure wireless LAN system design for industry application. The error-free network protocal and system architecture as well as FPGA prototyping will be given in this talk.

Abstract Keynote

Towards 5G System – The Role and Challenges of Satellite Communications

The next generation Fifth Generation (5G) is driven not only to increase network capacity but also to boost the life of battery operated data-hungry devices, like smart phones and tablets. One of the most feasible solutions to cope with this is the evolution from traditional macro-cell deployments to network densification. Small cells are seen as the best match for network densification, as they can be opportunistically deployed in the highly irregular way in hot spots known as Dense Femtocell Networks (DFNs) using new spectrum bands. However, the main challenges of such network is to provide appropriate backhaul network that can maximize coverage while maintaining the required data throughput. Although fiber is the backhaul of preference in high rise building, microwave point-to-point and satellite can be alternative solution to reach sparsely dense rural area. Satellite communication can overcome such challenges by making satellite either as part of 5G component, provide coverage extension in particular for emergency communication or even as 5G backhaul. Although a seamless integration between the satellite and terrestrial network been initiated in the Third Generation (3G) network, the optimization and topology reconfiguration according to the traffic demands not been adopted. The keynote will examine the evolution of satellite terrestrial integration, satellite role in service delivery and coverage extension, effective channel access and sharing scheme, harmonization capabilities through Very Small Aperture Terminals (VSATs), High Altitude Platform (HAP) and High Throughput Satellite (HTS), 5G gateways and backhaul options.

Abstract Keynote

5G Massive Wireless IoT Connections: Potential Multiple Access Schemes
The fifth telecommunication generation (5G) technologies expected in 2020 are defined by the international telecommunications union (ITU) to have: (a) data rate maximum of 20 Gbps, (b) massive machine-type communications, and (3) latency below 1 milisecond for some applications. This talk considers multiple access scheme for massive machine-type communications, which is expected to serve about 40-50 billion devices connected to the internet, the application of which is, e.g., the internet of things (IoT).

Based on the contention-based access mechanism, IoT technologies are divided into four categories: (i) pure ALOHA, (ii) slotted ALOHA, (iii) non-slotted carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA), and (iv) slotted CSMA/CA. In this talk, we consider new access scheme of IoT that provide better success rate in detection even the condition of the networks is overloaded.

Based on the basic concept of mathematics, especially on probability theory, binomial and exponential distribution (combined with some findings in information theory), we can provide better IoT access technologies in terms of: (a) higher throughput and/or serving higher number of devices or users, (b) lower packet loss rate, (c) optimizable networks (using extrinsic information (EXIT) chart analysis), and the most important finding, i.e., (d) the theoretical IoT limits given multiple user/devices detection capability per time slot. This talk is expected to be beneficial to develop future IoT networks and applications involving 2/3 of the global economy.
