Designing Intelligent Gigabit Wireless Edge
Monday, February 25, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Ioannis Pefkianakis, Wireless Architect at Apple
The rapidly growing IoT ecosystem brings a whole new spectrum of applications to users and Service Providers. The low-latency, gigabit-speed requirements of such applications running over an exponentially increased number of connected IoT devices, producing a deluge of valuable data, bring new challenges for network architects. How can we design low-latency, gigabit wireless IoT edge to accommodate the new disruptive applications? How can we use the valuable data collected at the edge to revolutionize user experience? In this talk, I will present an overview of my work towards designing the next generation intelligent wireless IoT edge, which seeks to address the above challenges. My focus will be on MIMO and millimeter-wave technologies, and how they can revolutionize the connectivity and ambient analytics at the edge.
