New CISCO Research Grant to Boris Bellalta for work in high-density WLANs

Boris Bellalta, head of the Wireless Networking Research Group, has been awarded with a research grant by CISCO for the project "Towards deterministic channel access in high-density WLANs"

27.11.2017

Boris Bellalta, head of the Wireless Networking Research Group, has been awarded with a research grant by CISCO to study the performance of next-generation WLANs based on the upcoming IEEE 802.11ax amendment in large, dense and dynamic environments, with emphasis in understanding the dependencies between MU transmissions, transmit power and sensitivity adaptation, and the use of channel bonding. 

Among other objectives, the project will make use of machine learning techniques to deal with the changing conditions in the considered scenarios, in order to develop a self-configuration module at each WLAN able to gather data from the environment, detect and predict changes in the channel, traffic loads and number of users, in order to update its configuration accordingly. CISCO will support with 100.000 EUR the work on simulation, analysis and experimentation using real networks.
