Title: In-Building Distributed Antenna Systems for Broadband Wireless Communications

Speaker: Jiangzhou Wang

Affiliation: Prof. Jiangzhou Wang, University of Kent

   Providing high data rate wireless mobile services has been a challenge, particularly in multi-floor buildings. One way to achieve high data rates in this environment is to reduce the radio transmission distance between the transmitter and the receiver. In-building high data rate wireless communications can be realised by either distributed antenna systems (DASs) or femtocells. However, co-channel interference due to the need to reuse the limited available spectrum can severely limit the spectral efficiency and achievable data rates. In this talk, a tutorial and advances about in-building DAS networks will be given and its technical challenges will be discussed.

   Jiangzhou Wang (M’91, SM’94) received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from Xidian University, Xian, China, in 1983 and 1985, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree (with Greatest Distinction) from the University of Ghent, Belgium, in 1990, all in communication engineering. Dr. Wang is currently Chair of Telecommunications and Head of Broadband and Wireless Communications Research Group at the University of Kent, England, United Kingdom. From 1995 to 2005, he was with the University of Hong Kong. From 1992 to 1995, he was a Senior System Engineer at Rockwell International Corporation, California, USA. From 1990 to 1992, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the University of California at San Diego, USA. Dr. Wang has published over 200 papers in international journals and conferences in the areas of wireless mobile communications. He has written/edited three books, two of which have been translated into Chinese. Dr. Wang is an Editor for IEEE Transactions on Communications since 1998, a five-time Guest Editor for IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (Wideband CDMA, 8/2000 and 1/2001; Advances in Multicarrier CDMA, 6/2006; Wireless Video Transmission, 3/2010; and Distributed Broadband Wireless Communications, 6/2011), a twice Guest Editor for IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine (Coordinated and Distributed MIMO, 6/2010; Recent Advances in Wireless Technologies for Smart Grid, 6/2012), Guest Editor for IEEE Communications Magazine (Advances on Cooperative Wireless Networking, 5/2011 and 4/2012). He was IEEE Globecom2011 Workshop Co-chair and IEEE VTC2011-Spring Track Co-chair. He will be IEEE WCNC2013 Technical Program Chairman and IEEE ICC2015 Executive Chairman. He is a Fellow of IET.
