Energy-efficient Scheduling for Wireless Network Slicing

Online

In 5G networks, mobile service providers will support vertical slices of mobile applications to meet diverse service quality requirements. Meanwhile, wireless traffic is explosively growing with increasing popularity of mobile applications. The wireless network slicing technique, which is built on network function virtualization and software defined network schemes, will support wireless applications on substrate physical facilities with higher flexibility and lower cost. This presentation will discuss a novel scheduling policy for wireless network slicing called Most Energy-Efficient Resource First (MEERF), which is scalable and priority-based. MEERF is asymptotically optimal in a local wireless environment with highly dense user population and exponentially distributed service times.

5G Electromagnetic Fields: exposure levels and safety standards

Online

The presentation will provide a brief introduction to 5G and what it means for electromagnetic (EMF) exposure based on the results of assessments of 5G networks (commercial and pilot) conducted in Australia and overseas.  The international EMF exposure guidelines were updated in March 2020 and one of the major changes was to provide more detailed guidance for frequencies above 6 GHz. Independent public health agencies say that no health risks are expected for 5G but myths and misinformation continue to be spread on social media, including suggestions of a link between wireless technologies and COVID-19. Pointers will be provided to reliable sources of information.
