Existing commercial wireless systems rely on closed and inflexible hardware-based architectures both at the radio frontend and in the core network. These problems significantly delay the adoption and deployment of new standards, impose significant challenges in implementing new techniques to maximize the network capacity and according coverage, and prevent provisioning of truly-differentiated services able to adapt to growing and uneven and highly variable traffic patterns. For these reasons, the research objective of this talk is to propose a new software-defined architecture for 5G and beyond wireless systems, to develop essential enabling technologies to support and manage the proposed architecture, and to showcase its major benefits by designing novel software-defined traffic engineering solutions. In particular, SoftAir, a Wireless Software-Defined Network architecture is proposed and its core architectural principles are studied, including the scalable design of software-defined radio access and core networks, as well as new techniques to provide network virtualization. It is demonstrated how this new SoftAir architecture can guarantee essential properties that are at the cornerstone of next-generation cellular networks, including the programmability, the cooperativeness, the virtualizability, the visibility, and the openness.



Dr. Shih-Chun Lin received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering and the M.S. degree in communication engineering from National Taiwan University, Taiwan, in 2008 and 2010, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA, in 2017. Currently, he is a tenure-track Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the North Carolina State University. His research interests include 5G&B cellular systems, software-defined networking, Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, big-data analytic and machine learning, wireless sensor networks in challenged environment, statistical scheduling and mathematical optimization.
