Short Abstract:
In the last years, information communication, computation and storage technologies are jointly reshaping the way we use technology, meeting the future needs of a wide range of big data and artificial intelligence applications and, paving the way for a full customized autonomous user experience. In 2020 the 5G -Next Generation Communication Networks is expected to be operational and a global game changer from a technological, economic, societal and environmental perspective. 5G industry is intensively working today on designing, prototyping and testing fundamental technological advances to de-liver the promised performance in terms of latency, energy efficiency, wireless broadband capacity, elasticity, etc. Nevertheless, many experts say that the next big step for cellular networks is not 5G, it is the cloud. This lecture will cover both architecture and detail technical tools for understanding the key enabling technologies that will enable 5G networks to meet its challenging performance targets and how ‘the cloud’ will play an operational role in future wireless networks.

Course Contents in brief:

  1. Introduction to evolution of Wireless Networks from 3G+ to 5G. Details on technologies enabling the revolution between 4G and 5G networks.
  2. Network densification, resource management and heterogeneous networks
  3. Advanced interference management techniques from heuristics to information theory
  4. Millimeter waves, Massive MIMO and antenna design Energy efficiency and its advanced techniques
  5. The ‘cloudification’ of 5G: from central-RAN to mobile edge cloud. Details examples of convex optimization tools and millimeter wave spectrum use
  6. Energy efficiency and its advanced techniques
  7. 6G the next frontier of research: Vision, roadmaps, enabling technologies.
