Wireless Communications and Networking

In recent years, wireless communications and networking has become extremely important throughout the world and in particular for Hong Kong and China. There are a large number of active research projects in advanced communications and networking areas, internet of things, machine-to-machine communications as well as cutting edge research in social networking and big data systems.

Key areas under study include:
Cloud radio access networks
Coding and error-control mechanisms
Communications detection algorithms
Cooperative sensing
Cyber physical systems
Data encryption and system security
Dense small cell and femto cell architecture for next-generation networks
Distributive algorithm designs and optimization
Heterogeneous networks
Large MIMO networks
Multi-user information theory
Next generation wireless communications and networking architecture for green and interference mitigation
Optical communication systems and visual light communications
Robust cross layer radio resource management
Social media
Social networking analytics
Stochastic network optimization
Wireless localization and tracking
