Today we are witnessing the impressive transformation of wireless networks. The demand has dramatically shifted from plain voice to throughput-hungry and low-latency communication and computing services, and new types of users have emerged such as autonomous vehicles and IoT devices. In order to address these challenges, the emerging 5G+ networks include several innovations. Among the most promising suggestions are (i) leverage the SDN/NFV technologies and create fully-programmable wireless systems, and (ii) push services closer to demand by harnessing resources at the edge.
At TCD we are working at the nexus of these game-changing ideas, developing an experimentally-validated analytical framework for the design of architectures and algorithms for wireless edge systems. Special emphasis is given on emerging services such as AR/VR applications and mobile data analytics.
Environment: The successful applicant will join the SoftEdge project team, and will have the opportunity to gain a unique education from leading researchers in academia and industry labs in Ireland and abroad. CONNECT brings together world-class expertise from ten Irish academic institutes and over 35 companies including large multinationals, SMEs and start-ups. SCSS and CONNECT have an active international visitor programme and provide the opportunity for international and industry exchange visits during the course of the PhD. Moreover, in our structured PhD programme leading international researchers provide specialist postgraduate modules to support our research students.
