Early Bird Discount Registration Now Available for TWS 2016

On October 18, 2016, Texas Wireless Summit (TWS) will explore how automated vehicles will re-shape wireless over the next 10 years with their demands for coordinated sensing and decision-making. Reshaping Wireless through Automated Vehicles will look at the benefits and requirements of connectivity, the key challenges of vehicle sensing and shared data analytics, including lightly-processed radar, lidar and camera data. 

Analyzing Uplink Massive MIMO Using Stochastic Geometry

Massive multiple-input multiple-out (MIMO) is a promising technique for 5G cellular networks. Prior work showed that high throughput can be achieved with a large number of base station antennas through simple signal processing in massive MIMO networks. The performance of massive MIMO in a large-scale network with irregular base station locations and random user distributions is not yet fully understood.
