The article “On the Joint Usage of Target Wake Time and 802.11ba Wake-Up Radio” by Andrey Lyakhov, Evgeny Khorov, Dmitry Bankov, and Ekaterina Stepanova has been published the IEEE Access journal. The work reviews the new IEEE 802.11ba standard amendment to the Wi-Fi technology. The amendment will allow battery-powered devices to exchange data, spending a minimum of energy. The article […]Read more
WNL paper “Super Fast Link Set-up in Wi-Fi HaLow Networks” written by WNL members Dmitry Bankov and Evgeny Khorov in collaboration with Prof. Katarzyna Kosek-Szott and Marcin Trebunia (AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland) has been accepted for publication in IEEE Communication Letters. This research continues a series of WNL research into the network solutions for IoT and considers the problem of fast authentication and the association of big numbers of devices in Wi-Fi HaLow networks.Read more
The WNL team has participated in the IEEE 802 LMSC July plenary session. It was the first plenary session that went online. During the session, the WNL team was involved in multiple significant events for IEEE 802.11. The first presentation after the opening plenary was of Wireless Next Generation (WNG), aka. “What’s Next Group”. Here the initial ideas are presented, […]Read more
The paper “Current Status and Directions of IEEE 802.11be, the Future Wi-Fi 7” by WNL members Evgeny Khorov, Ilya Levitsky, and Ian F. Akyildiz has been accepted for publication in IEEE Access. The survey gives a detailed description of the activity of IEEE 802.11be Task Group. WNL members have identified the main directions of the new technology development and documented them in the paper. It focuses on the open problems that can be solved by the researchers who want to contribute to the 802.11be.Read more
The WNL members have developed a solution for Wi-Fi HaLow networks to divide the energy-harvesting sensors into groups and to assign them the time intervals in such a way, that the sensors can deliver their data with the required reliability and at the same time consume a minimal amount of channel time. The WNL Lab solution is designed to avoid the possibility of sensors running out of energy during the transmission and thus losing their data and enables the support of thousands of energy-harvesting sensors in a Wi-Fi HaLow network.Read more
The paper “Prototyping NOMA Constellation Rotation in Wi-Fi” by WNL members Evgeny Khorov, Aleksey Kureev, Ilya Levitsky, and Ian F. Akyildiz and the new version of NOMA Wi-Fi Prototype will be presented at the #1 conference in telecommunications: IEEE INFOCOM 2020.
The prototype is modified to enable transmission and reception of NOMA frames, where the secondary constellations that have lower power can now be rotated by 0, 45, or 90 degrees.
WNL team describes a pioneering framework enabling Massive URLLC applications in 5G networks, which they have developed in 2018. Providing Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communications (URLLC) is one of the key challenges for 5G systems, which requires the redesign of both radio access technologies and the architectures. While 3GPP and the research community focus mainly on radio low layer functionality and architectural changes that enable URLLC, WNL Lab proposes a novel cross-layer framework that extends the already standardized 5G solutions to support a very massive number of users/flows in the system.Read more
