World---Cropped--224x135

A paper written by Hisham Elshaer, a PhD student in the Department of Informatics, and Professor Mischa Dohler , Head of the Centre for Telecommunications Research in the Department of Informatics, in collaboration with Federico Boccardi and Ralf Irmer from Vodaphone, has won the best paper award at the IEEE Globecom 2014 conference that was held in Texas in December.

The paper, titled “Downlink and Uplink Decoupling: a Disruptive Architectural Design for 5G Networks”, was written as part of a collaborative project between the Department of Informatics and Vodafone, which was funded by the FP7 Crossfire EU project. The paper discussed a new architectural design for 5G networks that introduced the possibility of a user transmitting its data to a different base station than the one it is receiving data from. The gains from this approach were studied using a realistic network setup based on Vodafone’4G small cell test network.

Globecom is one of the biggest and most prestigious conferences in the telecom field which features the attendance of more than 2000 leading scientists, researchers and industry practitioners from all around the world. The paper was selected out of more than 2000 submitted papers, which is a great distinction and recognition of the high profile research done in the Department of Informatics and Vodafone.
