On wireless networks for the era of mixed reality

Mixed reality services promise to enhance our lives by providing us with real-time immersive media and contextual information delivered through lightweight wireless head mounted displays. We introduce a perception based mixed reality video streaming platform that reduces the data rate requirements for such services from several Gbps to 100 Mbps over a network that supports a 10 ms Round-Trip-Time. We expect mixed reality services first to be delivered through indoor and campus area networks and later through ubiquitous 5G networks. Our simulation and measurement results show that massive MIMO and millimeter wave transmissions can provide the required aggregate multi-Gigabit indoor data rates to support mixed reality services.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

  • Wu Q.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
