Evolution of Mobile Communications in the Next Two Decades



The demand for a variety of data and higher data rates has been the main force driving the mobile cellular network evolution from 1G to 4G. In the next two decades, the accelerated development of autonomous vehicles and Internet-of-Things (IoT) will likely lead the evolutional needs of the next generations of the cellular network. After a brief review of the evolutionary path from 1G to 4G, this discussion will analyze major network functionalities to meet the needs of autonomous vehicles and IoT. Such functionalities include the ultra-low round-trip delay, ultra-high data rate (tens of Gbps), and real-time precise positioning (decimeter level). To fulfill such functionalities, a number of well-defined techniques are required, including base station densification, unification of global satellite systems with the cellular network, massive MIMO, new spectral resources (e.g., optical wireless and millimeter wave for hot spot coverage), and cloud-based radio access network, which facilitates virtual network operators. Some new research areas and engineering challenges will also be discussed.


Huaping Liu received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Nanjing, P.R. China, in 1987 and 1990, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), Newark, NJ, in 1997, all in electrical engineering. From July 1997 to August 2001 he was with Wireless Advanced Technology Laboratories, Lucent Technologies, New Jersey. In September 2001, he joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Oregon State University (OSU), where he has been a professor since 2011.


He has graduated 19 PhD students and 6 jointly trained PhD students (with universities in China). Together with his team members, he has published over 100 journal articles. The work of group has won three best paper awards, and he was selected twice by students as an IEEE Professor of the Year at OSU, awarded an OSU College of Engineering Research Collaboration Award, a Hashimoto Prize for his doctoral work at NJIT, and two Bell Labs Achievement Awards. His centimeter-accurate positioning technology for airplane manufacturing line automation won him a Boeing Pride Award. He has been selected as one of the “Thousand Talents Program for Distinguished Scholars” (Innovation Category).


He served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology and IEEE Communications Letters, an Editor for Journal of Communications and Networks, Security and Communication Networks, and ICT Express. He was IEEE Radio and Wireless Week 2013 Technical Program Committee Co-chair and IEEE WCNC 2015 PHY Track chair.
