Beyond 4G

Source: http://fk.vc/vgg

With the 4G telecommunications systems now starting to be deployed, eyes are looking towards the development of 5th generation or 5G technology and services. Although the deployment of any cellular system takes many years, development of the 5G technology systems is being investigated. The new 5G technologies will need to be chosen developed and perfected to enable timely and reliable deployment.

The new 5th generation, 5G technology for cellular systems will probably start to come to fruition around 2020 with deployment following on afterwards.

There are many new concepts that are being investigated and developed for the new 5th generation mobile system. Some of these include:

  1. Pervasive networks: This technology being considered for 5G cellular systems is where a user can concurrently be connected to several wireless access technologies and seamlessly move between them.
  2. Group cooperative relay: This is a technique that is being considered to make the high data rates available over a wider area of the cell. Currently data rates fall towards the cell edge where interference levels are higher and signal levels lower.
  3. Cognitive radio technology: If cognitive radio technology was used for 5th generation, 5G cellular systems, then it would enable the user equipment / handset to look at the radio landscape in which it is located and choose the optimum radio access network, modulation scheme and other parameters to configure itself to gain the best connection and optimum performance.
  4. Wireless mesh networking and dynamic ad-hoc networking: With the variety of different access schemes it will be possible to link to others nearby to provide ad-hoc wireless networks for much speedier data flows.
  5. Vandermonde-subspace frequency division multiplexing for modulation: It will be necessary to provide much more flexible and efficient forms of modulation for 5G cellular systems. This is one format being considered.
  6. Smart antennas: Another major element of any 5G cellular system will be that of smart antennas. Using these it will be possible to alter the beam direction to enable more direct communications and limit interference and increase overall cell capacity.

Vandermonde-subspace frequency division multiplexing (VFDM) is a technique for interference cancellation in overlay networks that allows a secondary network to operate simultaneously with a primary network, on the same frequency band. VFDM can be applied to block transmission systems with a guard time (or cyclic prefix) over frequency selective channels. It achieves zero interference towards the primary system by employing a special precoder that aligns the data to the null space of the interfering channel from the secondary to the primary system. In the paper, Cardoso cs extend the assessment of VFDM by analyzing the bit error rate and sum rate capacity of practical linear receiver structures for the VFDM-based secondary system.

CFP: IEEE Comnetsat 2013

The IEEE International Conference on Communication, Networks and Satellite (COMNETSAT 2013)  is a conference conducted by the IEEE Indonesia Section.

Call For Papers – IIJ Special Issue: Social Implications of ICTs in the Indonesian Context (PDF)

Deadline for paper submission: April 15, 2011
Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2011
Final revisions due: September 15, 2011
Camera-ready version: October 15 2011
Publication date: December 2011

The IIJ Guest Editors

Merlyna Lim, Arizona State University, USA
Yanuar Nugroho, University of Manchester, UK

Submission and correspondence for the special issue should be made via email to the Guest Editors, or alternatively to IIJ Editor (email: editor[AT]InternetworkingIndonesia.org) .

Introduction to the Special Issue

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have become a ubiquitous part of people’s lives all over the world, including in Indonesia. The growing use of these technologies, especially the Internet, has not only implicated the ways individuals communicate, but also influenced the way they connect to each other. With the developments of social media such as blogs, wikis, collaborative websites and other social networking tools to fulfill the personal, organizational, societal and political goals and to influence the way individuals work and live, it is important to understand the implications it brings. This special issue seeks manuscripts that look at a wide variety of ICT uses and what implications these uses have on people, organizations and society in the Indonesian context as the technology becomes more widely available. This issue also welcomes those who look at the other side of the coin, i.e. manuscripts that focus on the cultural, social and political shaping of the technologies by Indonesian society. The goal of this special issue is to offer an understanding and assessment of how ICTs and society have mutually shaped each other, and theoretical considerations of the links between social implications and ICTs.
