Title: Mobile Data Offloading in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks – Delay and Economics
Date: 2017-03-24 2:20pm-3:30pm
Location: R103, CSIE
Speaker: Dr.Tony Q.S. Quek, Singapore University of Technology and Design
Hosted by: Prof. Phone Lin
Emergence of new types of services has led to various traffic and diverse delay requirements in fifth generation (5G) wireless networks. Meeting diverse delay requirements is one of the most critical goals for the design of 5G wireless networks. One of the effective technologies to meet such demands is mobile data offloading. In this talk, we will discuss some recent works to enhance our understanding of mobile data offloading in heterogeneous cellular networks from the perspectives of delay and economics. In particular, we develop a tractable approach to analyze the delay in the heterogeneous cellular networks with spatio-temporal random arrival of traffic. Furthermore, we investigate the economics of mobile data offloading via third party small cell service providers, implementing uniform volume prices for all macrocell users.
Tony Q.S. Quek received the B.E. and M.E. degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, respectively. At Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, he earned the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Currently, he is a tenured Associate Professor with the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). He also serves as the Associate Head of ISTD Pillar and the Deputy Director of SUTD-ZJU IDEA.
