Abstract

Modern wireless devices such as tablets and smartphones are pushing the demand for higher wireless data rates. While successive generations of wireless standards achieve continuous improvement, it is the general understanding of both academia and industry that a significant increase in wireless traffic demand can be met only by a higher density of base stations(BSs)/access points(APs). This is indeed the trend in enterprise WiFi networks and the direction that future cellular network architectures will follow. Unfortunately, denser deployments lead to more inter-cell interference, which, in turn, diminishes the gains from deploying more BSs/APs in the first place. To mitigate inter-cell interference we propose to coordinate nearby BSs/APs using advanced PHY/MAC techniques. We show that such techniques can potentially increase the available bandwidth by one order of magnitude in real-world scenarios of interest, while being amenable to implementation.

Biography

Konstantinos Psounis is an associate professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Southern California. He received his first degree from the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of National Technical University of Athens in 1997, the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, California, in 1999, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2002. Konstantinos models and analyzes the performance of a variety of wired and wireless networks and designs schemes and protocols to solve problems related to such systems. He is the author of numerous research papers on these topics which have received thousands of citations, and has faculty awards from multiple sources including the National Science Foundation, the Army Research Laboratory and CISCO Systems. He is a senior member of both IEEE and ACM.
