报告题目：Cooperation and Sharing in Future Wireless Networks
演讲人: Prof. Iain Collings, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
报告摘要：The demand for mobile data is booming, but spectrum is limited. Current cellular systems are struggling to keep up with data demand and there is increasing need to consider spectrum sharing, as well as opening up new spectrum. This talk will outline the hot topic of cooperation and sharing in high density metro cells and heterogeneous networks. These technologies have the potential to drastically increase both coverage and capacity for both indoor and outdoor networks. Their full potential will only be reached if we are able to solve some new problems which arise for these systems on both the physical layer and the network level.
