Panel topic

Wireless Dense Networks: Simple rescaling or change of paradigm?

Panel description

In order to cope with future mobile traffic demands, it is widely agreed that the density of mobile networks will grow exponentially in the near future, so that the density of base stations/access points of such networks will be much higher. One possible way of dealing with this increased density is by simply scaling down the transmission power, in such a way that the mobile network works pretty much in the same way as they do today but with lower transmission powers to avoid interference. An alternative would be to change the current paradigm by allowing a higher relative transmission powers (and hence more interference) and using new techniques to deal with this. This panel will focus on these possible alternatives and will explore:
