Wireless Information Infrastructures and the Future Internet: Protocol Components, System Architectures, Security and Privacy
Date: October 03 - October 06, 2011
Broadband Communication Infrastructures are expanding rapidly and are becoming ubiquitous. They are affecting every aspect of life and work. They are shaping the architecture, protocols and operation of the evolving future Internet. In this tutorial we describe major recent advances, challenges and opportunities in this critical area, from an integrated systems perspective. Hardware and physical layer advances are making possible new programmable types of networks and services. In the wireless arena physical layer advances mitigate interference (OFDM, MIMO, etc.) and will provide energy and bandwidth efficient and reliable communications. Services over the Future Internet and associated architectures are rapidly expanding and are increasingly interacting and integrated.
