          Enabling Ubiquitous Connected Society: Research and Innovation on Highly Efficient                    and Ultra-Dense 5G Wireless Technologies



The expeditious evolution of wireless technologies and their rapid convergence with diverse industry applications signify the anticipated arrival of our ubiquitous connected society. With the dramatically growing data traffic, pervasive deployment of connected devices and diverse services to be supported, the future success of our industries and society rely heavily on wireless networks and their technical capabilities in the provisioning of massive capacity/connectivity, highly secure handling of massive data, and diverse application-oriented requirements from people, society and industry.


The focus of this talk is to analyze the main technical challenges of the ubiquitous connected society, identify the corresponding key enabling technologies, and present our ongoing research, innovation and collaboration activities in the related areas. Specifically, this talk will cover the following aspects: i) Highly efficient and ultra-dense communication in 5G networks; ii) Communication security enhancement techniques through physical layer authentication and opportunistic adaptation; iii) Enabling technologies for situation-aware Internet-of-Things applications, including locationing technology and situational-awareness discovery enabled by data analytics. This talk also aims to share technical insight on the future development of relevant wireless technologies and their convergence with vertical industries.




Dr. Xianbin Wang is a Professor and Canada Research Chair at Western University. Prior to joining Western, he was with Communications Research Centre Canada (CRC) from July 2002 and Dec. 2007 as a Research Scientist/Senior Research Scientist and STMicroelectronics from Jan. 2001 to July 2002 as a System Designer.


The fundamental objective of Dr. Wang’s research is to improve the overall capacity, efficiency and security of wireless communications systems and enable their applications in industry.
