Space-Time Physical-Layer Network Coding

Due to the superposition and broadcast nature of the wireless medium, unmanaged interference results in diminishing data rates in wireless networks. With a recently developed network coding strategy, however, it was demonstrated that interference is no longer adverse in communication networks, provided that it can sagaciously be harnessed. This approach of exploiting interference has opened the possibility of better performance in the interference-limited communication regime than traditionally thought possible.

Predicting 5G: Performance Analysis of Millimeter Wave Cellular Networks

With advances in RF circuits, the era of operating cellular networks in millimeter wave (mmWave) bands is coming. The lightly licensed mmWave band offers the potential to solve the spectrum gridlock in current cellular networks. It is not clear, however, whether both high data rates and coverage in signal-to-noise-and-interference ratio (SINR) can be achieved in mmWave cellular networks; as the propagation conditions and hardware constraints become different, and prior microwave network models do not directly apply to mmWave systems.

Alum Harpreet Dhillon Awarded Best Paper

Student Harpreet Dhillon and former visiting researcher Ralph Tanbourgi receive Best Student Paper Award in the 20th European Wireless Conference in Barcelona, Spain. Their paper was chosen from among 180 papers presented at the conference. Dhillon, advisded by Prof. Jeffrey Andrews, will join Virginia Tech this fall as an Assistant Professor.

Perceptually Driven Algorithms for Stored Video Delivery

Wireless, and to a lesser extent wired, networks exhibit substantial variability in available capacity and/or load variations. As a result stored video delivery protocols have been designed to adapt compression rate to congestion in the network and/or the state of the video clients playback buffer.  
 

WNCG Celebrates Qualcomm's EERC Donation

On April 16, 2014, representatives from Qualcomm visited the Cockrell School's Wireless Networking and Communications Group, which will have a new home in the Engineering Education and Research Center when it is completed in 2017. The WNCG also received $2 million from Qualcomm to support continuing wireless communications research. Click the image below for a slideshow of the event:
