Abstract: To exploit the huge potential market value of networked things, connecting and understanding objects rather than users has been driving the new wave of technological evolution. 5G correspondingly adopts the model of massive machine type communications (mMTC), which is different from current human communication models by involving a potentially very large number of small and power-constrained devices with low volume of non-delay sensitive information.
In addition to mMTC, 5G new radio and NFV/SDN form the most efficient network architecture so far. It brings powerful nodes much closer to the scene by implementing edge/fog computing; it can also utilize network slicing and provide subscriber with isolated and service level agreement (SLA) guaranteed network services. As a result, subscribers will be able to achieve from integrated 5G IoT paradigm the ubiquitous access and flexible computational capability.
This talk addresses how to use machine learning to enhance the ability of IoT platforms with efficient data analysis and effective decision making. It will help both academic and industrial research communities understand the recent research progress and emerging technologies of integrated 5G IoT.
Bio: Bo Rong received the B.S. degree from Shandong University in 1993, the M.S. degree from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2001. He is currently a Research Scientist with Communications Research Centre Canada, Ottawa, ON. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Ecole de technologie superieure (ETS), Universite du Quebec, Canada. Dr. Rong has authored or coauthored over 80 technical papers in major journals and conferences, as well as three book chapters in the areas of wireless networking & communications. Many of these publications have theoretical and practical significance to the research community and industry. For example, his work “Call Admission Control Optimization in WiMAX Networks”, was ranked #1 most accessed paper in August 2008 among all papers published in IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, and #69 among all IEEE papers. Dr. Rong’s research interests include 5G SON and SDN for heterogeneous networks, 5G mmWave MIMO and radio resource management, and spectrum sharing and trading for Next generation cognitive mobile networks. He is a member of IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Broadcasting Society. He serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE Communication Letters as well as the Guest Editor of special issues for IEEE Communication Magazine, IEEE Wireless Communication Magazine and IEEE Internet of Things Journal.
