COHERENT is participating in the 28th Annual IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (IEEE PIMRC 2017) held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, from October 8 to 13, 2017.
Two COHERENT related papers will be presented at the conference. The paper titled “Hierarchical Network Abstraction for HetNet Coordination”, written by the partners Sergio Lembo (AALTO), Junquan Deng (AALTO), Ragnar Freij-Hollanti (AALTO), Olav Tirkkonen (AALTO) and Tao Chen (VTT), focuses on a user-centric, and centralized, network-level coordination framework for 5G RANs, based on RAN softwarization. The topic of the second paper is “On Active, Fine-Grained RAN and Spectrum Sharing in Multi-Tenant 5G Networks” and it is written by Shah Nawaz Khan, Leonardo Goratti, Roberto Riggio, Shahriar Hasan from CREATE-NET.
Furthermore, COHERENT is co-organizing a workshop on Cognitive Radio and Innovative Spectrum Sharing Paradigms for Future Networks (CRAFT 2017), which will be held on 12 October. Project partner Adrian Kliks (PUT) is one of the workshop co-chairs.
The workshop aims to gather and promote discussion among researchers, engineers, practitioners, and end-user groups, with the goal of inspiring the analysis and development of cognitive radio (CR) and spectrum sharing solutions for future networks. There has been a vast increase in the range and proliferation of wireless technologies over recent decades, which has led to the crowding of existing spectrum. Among available solutions to address the resulting congestion and shortage of capacity, CR and spectrum sharing concepts have been envisioned. Such concepts will be particularly important in the context of 5G communication systems, where despite the introduction of novel mm-wave “pioneer bands”, there will be evermore increased pressure – especially on lower-frequency spectrum. The workshop focuses on the practical implementations, and “shift-to-market” considerations. Moreover, the workshop also covers issues, advances and challenges in various research domains related to cognition and wider spectrum sharing schemes in future generation communication systems and networks.
