Invited Talk - Hybrid Heterogenous Radio over Free Space Optics Communications technology
In the past decade, the world has witnessed a dramatic increase in the traffic carried by the telecommunication networks. The increasing demand for high-speed internet services (high definition TV, video calls and cloud-based computing) has underpinned the need for further innovation, research and development in new emerging technologies capable of delivering ultra high data rates. Optical fibre based systems provide the means to accommodate this demand in the core and the metropolitan-area network level. However, the fibre has still a long way to go, before it reaches the end users (the Fibre-to-the-Home – FTTH concept) because of the very high installation costs. Several fixed wireless access schemes already exist. Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access(WiMax) and WiFi is based on the IEEE 802.16d standard for fixed broadband wireless access and can theoretically achieve high data rates (400 Mbps) over a range of 50 km, assuming a line-of-sight (LOS) component, but is significantly reduced with no LOS. Another option is the Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology that can avoid spectrum regulation and offers good propagation characteristics, but the range is limited to less than a few tens of meters. RF based wireless solutions are limited in bandwidth and the available spectrum is regulated, which is due to the broadcast nature of these technologies. Though the concept of the radio over Fibre (RoF) is conceptually magnificent, RoF required the fibre infrastructure, which is not cost effective. However there exists an alternative solution in the form of free space optics (FSO) which can offer bandwidth comparable with fibre without using fibre. Free Space Optical (FSO) systems range from wavelengths of 0.7μm to 10μm, offer a large unregulated bandwidth, immunity to the EM interference, frequency reuse (FR), lower power consumption, inherent security and a cost-effective protocol-free link at high data rates over 5 km range. In addition FSO systems can also support many protocols such as Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), Ethernet, Fast and Gigabit Ethernet. Furthermore, FSO components have small dimensions and power requirements. Additional the concept of radio over FSO (RoFSO) could be the way forward for carrying the RF signal for future mobile network signal where fibre infrastructure is not available. The RoFSO system is suitable for rapid provisioning of heterogeneous wireless services in underserved areas, left out due to the high costs of installing new networks, limiting the availability of high-bandwidth services. In this an overview of RoFSO will be presented addressing, issues, challenges and the way forward.

All cloud stakeholders, from individual customers and third parties to the cloud providers themselves have a vested interest to be able to understand and control what is going on at the different layers of cloud stack. Assurance information is needed to monitor, validate and check cloud SLAs, as well as for checking compliance to policies involving crucial non-functional properties like security, privacy and dependability. Several research proposals and even some commercial products are noe available for specific types of assurance data: but large-scale collection of trustworthy assurance information is still more an art than a science. This talk will briefly present the current state of the art in cloud assurance; then it will focus on open research issues regarding (i) the development of new techniques for trustworthy testing and monitoring of cloud services(ii) the definition of uniform
access interfaces to assurance data for the compute, networking and storage cloud services (iii) client notifications/alarms and evidence-based decision making

W108- Future multiple antenna technologies for next generation wireless systems-H3
(I will cover 2 hour and the rest 2 hour will be covered by Prof. S. Mohammad Razavizadeh)
Abstract of my part:In this talk, we consider weighted sum-rate (WSR) maximization problems in multiple-input single-output (MISO) interference channels (IFC) and interfering broadcast channels (IFBC). Most of existing techniques have tried to improve the WSR performance by utilizing instantaneous channel state information. However, since these methods in general should be carried out for each channel realization, they require high computational complexity, which may not be suitable for practical systems. To overcome this issue, we propose a new low complexity beamforming scheme for IFC based on virtual signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio with constant parameters which depend only on the long-term channel statistics. In our approach, to obtain the constant parameters, the asymptotic values of the leakage coefficients which control the interference signal power are derived by employing asymptotic results from random matrix theory. Moreover, based on the results in MISO IFC, we extend the algorithm to the MISO IFBC case by applying a power allocation algorithm.
Numerical results confirm that the proposed schemes provide the near-optimal WSR performance with much reduced system complexity.

W109- Measuring quality of experience in IPTV related services-H3
Development of fixed and mobile broadband access data networks (e.g. xDSL, FTTx, 3G, LTE, Wimax) in recent years makes the delivery of TV‑related service feasible. In other words, the interactivity of users besides the diversity of services in interactive TV (iTV) made it an appropriate alternative for traditional TV. But the operators should have a thoroughly detailed look at the quality. The definition of perceived quality of specific services in data networks is a complicated subject that includes both objective and subjective aspects. It is important to consider that the subscriber’s experience is not only related to his network infrastructure but also it is affected from service delivery conditions.
We focus to investigate and categorize the effective metrics on quality of experience of TV services in IPTV and OTT. Therefore we grouped the metrics into three different classes based on their root causes (i.e. command, network and video quality) and after that we use the quantitative metrics to estimate the final experience of IPTV subscribers. During this workshop we will explain the technical aspects of metrics and their measuring scenarios. We also present the importance of quality of experience by using some practical examples of one commercial under load system in Tehran.

W113- Internet of Things: Applications and Security challenges-H3
It has been only two decades since internet found its way to people’s homes, however, the change it has made to living styles is tremendous. Its effects can be found in almost every domain ranging from shopping to communication and driving. It is deemed that the impact of internet on our lives is going to be even more in the future and this has brought on the idea of “Internet of Things”. The basic idea of this concept is the pervasive presence around us of a variety of things or objects – such as Radio-Frequency IDentification (RFID) tags, sensors, actuators, mobile phones, etc. – which, through unique addressing schemes, are able to interact with each other and cooperate with their neighbors to reach common goals. It is estimated that by 2025, the number of devices connected to the internet gets over 50 billions. This is multiple times greater than the total number of people living on earth and will include the cars, appliances and even your cloths. In this presentation an introduction to the internet of things is given first. Then, some of the prospective security challenges are presented.

In the past two decades, companies have increasingly relied on Agile methods to keep up with growing demand and changing markets; Agile software development refers to a group of software development methodologies based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams.today, about half of all companies that use Agile use Scrum.
Scrum is most often used to manage complex software and product development, using iterative and incremental practices. Scrum significantly increases productivity and reduces time to benefits relative to classic “waterfall” processes. Scrum processes enable organizations to adjust smoothly to rapidly-changing requirements, and produce a product that meets evolving business goals.
An agile Scrum process benefits the organization by helping it to
Increase the quality of the deliverables
Cope better with change (and expect the changes)
Provide better estimates while spending less time creating them
Be more in control of the project schedule and state
Xamin project was launched at ITRC in 2012.
