In recent years, aerial transportation has seen unprecedented advances since the terrestrial traffic congestion and the constraints of public transportation infrastructure. To become a reality, it is important to provide a strong and reliable connection for aerial users.
Duc Minh Nguyen, a Ph.D. candidate in the Communication Theory Lab (CTL), has been selected as one of ten representatives from Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region to participate in the Young Professionals Summit in London, in November 2022.
Yingquan Li, PhD student in the Communication Theory Lab (CTL), participated in the EUSIPCO 2022 3MT Contest on August 30, 2022, in Belgrade, Serbia.
Underwater acoustic communication networks (UACNs) are considered a key enabler to the underwater internet of things (UIoT). UACN is regarded as essential for various marine applications such as monitoring, exploration, and trading. However, a large part of existing literature disregards the 3-dimensional (3D) nature of the underwater communication system.
While the fifth-generation cellular (5G) is meant to deliver Gigabit peak data speeds, low latency, and connect to billions of devices, and 6G is already on the way, half of the world population living in rural areas are still facing challenges connecting to the internet.
The Sixth Generation (6G) of mobile networks is expected to be a game-changer in the telecom industry with applications and services such as enhanced mobile communications, increased indoor positioning accuracy, holographic telepresence, tactile communications, extended reality, and worldwide connectivity.
This work explores the outage performance of two-way hybrid visible light communication/radio frequency (VLC/RF) communication systems using an overlay mode of cooperative cognitive radio network.
Visible light communication (VLC) is a promising technology for 6th-generation (6G) networks because of its attractive feature such as a wide unlicensed spectrum. However, the modulation bandwidth of lens of commercially available light-emitting diode (LEDs), which are used in optical wireless data links, is limited.
About the Conference
The technological evolution has led to the current high-performing wireless communication systems that we use on a daily basis. However, coping with the increasing demand is becoming more and more challenging, especially since we are approaching the limits of what can be done with the available resources. One of these resources is bandwidth.
King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) has partnered with LEAP, a conference bringing the global technology community under one roof to tackle some of the globe’s biggest technology challenges.
The Marconi Society organized the second 6G Summit on Connected the Unconnected in partnership with KAUST. The summit was a three-day virtual event that brought together experts from technology and policy-making to discuss ideas that can accelerate the process of connecting the unconnected population to the internet.
Through the Connect2Recover initiative, the United Nations International Telecom Union (ITU) has organized the "Connect2Recover Research Competition" to identify promising research proposals that will accelerate digital inclusion during the COVID-19 recovery globally.
