Title: UE Relay Evolving with D2D for Next-Generation Cellular Networks

Speaker: Prof. Dong In Kim

Affiliation: Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU)

   This invited talk reviews the current state-of-the-art of User Equipment (UE) relay which is being considered for LTE-Advanced Cellular Standard and proposes a number of novel UE relaying and cooperation techniques. An important related issue is the availability or the absence of the channel state information (CSI) at UE relay, which leads to the concepts of partial information based or open-loop UE relaying. It is expected that UE relay evolving with device-to-device (D2D) communication for LTE-Advanced will play an important role in extending and improving the coverage and cell capacity of next-generation cellular networks. D2D communication is a promising technique to provide wireless peer-to-peer services and enhance spectrum utilization in the LTE- Advanced networks. However, enabling D2D communication in a cellular network poses major challenges, which are addressed in this talk, and whose functionalities are combined with UE relaying for collaborative transmission/reception.
