International Workshop on Future Mobile Networks

(FMN)

 

Introduction

Nowadays, the mobile network no longer just connects people but is evolving into billions of devices, such as sensors, controllers, machines, autonomous vehicles, drones, people and things with each other and then achieves informatization and intelligentize. The foregoing considerations highlight the urgent need for novel techniques, e.g., Self-organization Networks and Internet of Things. One of the key requirements is scalability. This means that we have to provide broadband wireless access that spans the gamut- from massive data requirements to very low data requirements for services that come very infrequently. Coverage is critical for these applications, and speed and capacity are often compromised in order to achieve consistent coverage.

From a planning and optimization perspective on the mobile network, this means that we also need a lot more flexibility to address these future needs. Due to this trend, some novel networks such as Self-organization Network and Internet of Things, etc, have been proposed to provide users better quality of experience. However, there are many problems urgent to be addressed before benefits promised by these novel networks can be exploited. For instance, intelligent interference management, hyper-dense heterogeneous networks, Cellular network on drone and Network Virtualization etc. The scope of the workshop includes a wide range of technical challenges in view of the growing interest for the Future Mobile Network Architecture, Networking, communication and Security, etc.
