Next Generation Cellular Wireless Networks: Results on QoE Consistency and Multiple Cell Selection
I will present results on two topics related to next generation cellular wireless networks.The first topic addresses the challenges of offering consistent Quality of Experience (QoE) in an environment where due to mobility, arrival and departures and time varying channels, the system state is highly stochastic.The second topic is on multiple cell selection.
We aim at answering two questions:
1) how much is performance improved when devices can select multiple base stations at once?
2) how can multiple cell selection be implemented in practice? This work was done in collaboration with Dr. Fidan Mehmeti and Ararat Shaverdian.
