Green Heterogeneous Wireless Networks
This seminar focuses on the emerging research topic - green (energy efficient) wireless networks, which has drawn huge attention recently from both academia and industry. This topic is highly motivated due to important environmental, financial, and quality-of-experience (QoE) considerations. In this talk, we mainly focus on energy efficient techniques in base stations (BSs) and mobile terminals (MTs) as they constitute the major sources of energy consumption in wireless access networks, from the operator and user perspectives. Furthermore, this talk targets the heterogeneous nature of the wireless communication medium. The wireless communication medium has become a heterogeneous environment with overlapped coverages due to the co-existence of different cells (macro, micro, pico, and femto), networks (cellular networks, wireless local areas networks, wireless metropolitan area networks), and technologies (radio frequency, device-to-device (D2D), and visible light communications (VLC)). In such a networking environment, MTs are equipped with multiple radio interfaces and enjoy a multi-homing capability. This talk mainly focuses on promoting energy efficiency in wireless networks through multi-homing resource allocation, exploiting network cooperation, integrating different and new network technologies (radio frequency and VLC), and integrating new device centric communication paradigms such as D2D communications.
