  • Webinar 18 (July 2019) - IoT Security

    Details of the Eighteenth webinar in this series is as follows:

    Topic: “IoT Security “

    Abstract:IOT / M2M Ecosystem comprises of telecom service providers, M2M application service providers, Sensors, hardware OEMs, supply chain, middleware, deployment and asset management. M2M is driving an increasingly complex relationship between networks, service providers and an exploding number of devices in real time. These devices will be powered and connected by a complicated convergence of networks. Different types of applications have different needs in terms of network resources leading to requirement of different regulatory treatment to them.

    IOT / M2M (Machine to Machine communication) is an emerging area for connecting devices; M2M refers to technologies that allow both wireless and wired systems to communicate with other devices of the same ability. M2M uses a device (such as a sensor or meter) to capture an event, which is relayed through a network (wireless, wired or hybrid) to an application, that translates the captured event into meaningful information. We foresee a heterogeneous architecture in future, in which there will be several devices, gateway and back end platforms will be communicating to each other using different communication modes.

    As these new service providers develop new and innovative services for particular market segments, they may be unaware of the threats their service may face. In some cases, the service provider may not have developed a service that has connected to a communications network or the internet before and they may not have access to the skills and expertise to mitigate the risks posed by enabling internet connectivity within their devices. In contrast, their adversaries understand the technology and security weaknesses, quickly taking advantage if vulnerabilities are exposed.

  • Webinar 12 (October 2018) - OpenAirInterface 5G work in regards to standardization

    Details of the twelfth webinar in this series is as follows:

    Topic: “OpenAirInterface 5G work in regards to standardization”

    Abstract: The OpenAirInterface Software Alliance is (OSA) is a non-profit consortium fostering a community of industrial as well as research contributors for open source software and hardware development for the 4G/5G core network, Radio Access Network (RAN) and User Equipment (UE) of 3GPP 4G/5G cellular networks. This work is geared towards development of 4G/5G Cellular Stack on Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) hardware. Starting off years ago as an academic and research initiative, the OpenAirInterface (OAI) software, being an open (source) implementation, is now finding new uses as the telecom industry as the latter learns about open source and the value it brings to this industry. The OSA, alongside its much esteemed partner organization ETSI, is evangelizing open implementations through a standardization path.

    Business practices teach us that markets tend to be dynamic and trade frequently when products are standardized. While “standardization” is a much-employed term in the telecoms industry, its true application from a market perspective has over the years been distorted due to lack of interoperability between vendors across some key network interfaces. As a result, telecom operators have decided to combine their efforts to standardize these interfaces in a manner so as to allow multiple vendors to interoperate across these interfaces. The O-RAN consortium, among others, is an operator-led initiative attempting to standardize interfaces where 3GPP might not have deemed necessary. Open source is expected to play a key role in going forward with these goals, both within 3GPP as a test and validation tool during standardization, and outside, by providing independent software allowing to rapidly implement network functions and demonstrate interoperability. These aspects represent new challenges for the industry as well as standardization bodies.

    The OpenAirInterface is the world’s largest independent 5G community with the fastest growing 5G assets and therefore is the foremost provider of open software to support innovation. In this webminar we shall detail these considerations and help participants understand the basics of OAI.

  • Webinar 5 (June 2017) - Standardising and Integrating Smart Cities: A transport use case

    Details of the fifth webinar in this series is as follows:

    Topic: “Standardising and Integrating Smart Cities: A transport use case”

    Abstract: Smart city initiatives are mostly driven by single cities with large budgets. This trend typically demands new platforms and sensor deployments to define solutions that are eventually translated into better conditions for citizens. However, the problem with the current model is the large cost of “usually” bespoke solutions, which also tend to avoid using data from “legacy” systems and databases. InterDigital, in collaboration with 15 public and private partners across two consortiums, are using the international open standard, oneM2M, to tackle this problem and change the way smart cities are implemented. In the webinar, a group of experts will present and debate on the rationale for running field trials in the UK and their relevance to international markets. The main points for discussion will include:

    • Reduction of costs and generation of commercial opportunities for cities;
    • Creation of a framework for innovation;
    • Aggregation of new and old infrastructure and data;
    • Integration of multiple urban and rural regions; and
    • The provision of non-vendor lock-in solutions for authorities and other parties using transportation data initially.

  • Webinar 4 (May 2017) - Full Duplex Wireless Communications

    Details of the fourth webinar in this series is as follows:

    Topic: “Full Duplex Wireless Communications”

    Abstract: Full-duplex communication (FDC) is a very elegant and lucrative technique for doubling the data rate of a wireless system for the same bandwidth. While most current communication devices (cell phones, wireless routers) appear full-duplex, they are indeed half-duplex systems. In current devices, the transmit and the receive data is separated either in time or frequency. However, in a ”real” full-duplex communication system the transmitter sends and receives information in the same time and frequency band thus effectively doubling the data rate. Self-interference is a major impediment in full-duplex systems. In this  talk, we will look at the current techniques and the state-of-art for self-interference cancellation.

    Details of the first webinar in this series is as follows:

    Topic: Mobile Broadband Communications for Public Protection/Safety and Disaster Relief: a 5G Perspective

    Abstract: Requirements of a system used for emergency communications for public safety differ from those used for commercial wireless communications. Aspects like reliability, redundancy and security for an emergency communication system are more stringent than those for commercial wireless communication systems.Traditionally, such challenges were fulfilled by technologies like TETRA, P25 and such, primarily using narrowband voice communication. The evolution and maturity of present day wireless communications systems (read as Long Term Evolution or LTE), has now made it possible to equip the emergency service providers with access to not just voice but streaming broadband video as well. This presentation will take a look at the evolution of the present day wireless communication systems for emergency communication and try to show where we are headed in our near future.
