Event Presentations

IEEE PIMRC 2017

IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications
Angelo Cuffaro, XCellAir Senior Director R&D/Chief Scientist, will be participating in the panel, “Urban Connectivity: Challenges and Opportunity”

As network technologies evolve at a very high pace in Telecommunication, so do all of the techniques, algorithms and methodologies that relate to building and deploying networks based on those emerging technologies. Past technologies have led to a lot of research activities being carried on in areas such as frequency allocation optimization, wave propagation modeling (e.g. at millimeter waves) or statistical modeling of network performance (in licensed, light licensed and unlicensed frequency bands), in general covering the fields of predicting and optimizing the performance of the deployed network.

5G complement existing technologies and offers new paradigms in terms of network air interface, topology and balance between the core, backhaul and access network.

The panel session reviewed recent progresses in all these areas to serve an optimal connectivity contributing to the Smart City connectivity. Angelo Cuffaro was one of the panelists who provided insights into the challenges to come and research areas in which the knowledge of our scientific communities and industrial practice needs to progress based on recent pre-5G and IoT deployments.
