Title: Enabling Light Communications in Wi-Fi with IEEE 802.11bb

Speaker: Ilya Levitsky, IITP RAS, MIPT

Abstract: New wireless networks applications demand high data rates for many users, privacy and security, undisturbed connection, high performance in dense deployments. Light Communication (LC) is a way to potentially satisfy these challenging requirements. Using infrared and visible light spectrum for free-space communication opens doors for new applications in industrial and medical areas, in enterprise- and residential scenarios where traditional radio frequencies are restricted, prohibited, or inefficient. For the omnipresent LC usage in Wireless LANs, the IEEE 802.11 Working Group has initiated the development of a new 802.11bb standard. Although the work is at its early stages, we can still form a general view of the key innovations of 802.11bb upon the ongoing discussions in the group. In the seminar we study the basics of 802.11bb transmissions, highlight the key modifications to 802.11, and discuss open issues that can be solved by the researchers.

Bio: Ilya Levitsky received his BS degree and MS degree in applied mathematics and physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 2018 and 2020, respectively. Currently, he is a researcher in Wireless Networks Lab, IITP RAS and he is working toward his Ph.D. degree. Ilya created a first-ever physical prototype of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) Wi-Fi device. He authors a dozen of papers and patent applications. His professional interests include Wi-Fi technology, capture effect, NOMA systems, software-defined radio prototyping, and IEEE 802.11be innovations, multi-link operation in particular.

The seminar is free and open.
