Introduction

EE 392I seminar is conducted as a series of lectures and invited talks on current trends in computing, communications and information services, and ongoing initiatives for research and open innovation in these areas. Advances in design and deployment of next-generation computing/telecommunication infrastructures and services, and emerging industry innovations by telecommunication operators, equipment manufactures, software vendors, and service providers are addressed.

Spring 2010-2011

This year's focus will be on mobile networking infrastructure and handset ecosystem, keeping in line with noticeable trends in these realms. Recent years have seen and an unprecedented proliferation in mobile data services and a staggering increase in cellular data traffic. The changes can be attributed to the mobile ecosystem comprising operators, vendors and service providers going through a transformation and embracing elements of an open innovation model. The consequential impact on research has been encouraging with access to handset functionality and mobile network operation becoming more transparent. While this has fostered research and innovation on one hand and created new operational paradigms on the other, the resulting growth in data traffic has emerged as one of challenges confronting the industry.

 

The seminar series this year will begin with a primer on cellular networks, address recent trends, and discuss the emerging mobile systems and networks architectures as these migrate to converged and simplified paradigms. Taking example of real world platforms including Android, the seminar will demonstrate research and innovation in mobile systems and applications.
