Title: Rate Control in Wi-Fi Networks

Speaker: Alexander Krotov, IITP RAS, NRU HSE.

Abstract: Wi-Fi performance significantly depends on the transmission rates.  Using data rates based on higher-order modulation techniques is one of the ways to increase the throughput of the Wi-Fi networks. However, selecting too high rate may lead to high frame error rate and the need for retransmissions.  The Wi-Fi standard does not specify the rate algorithms, therefore devices from different vendors use different algorithms.  At the seminar we will consider modern approaches to solving the rate control problem in Wi-Fi networks based on machine learning methods and discuss new challenges arising as Wi-Fi standard is developed further.

Bio: Alexander Krotov is a senior researcher at the Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IITP RAS) and Higher School of Economics (HSE).  He has received a Ph.D. degree in telecommunications from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 2020.  His professional interests include next-generation wireless networks, modern Wi-Fi technology, spatial reuse and power control in dense networks, and the development of simulation tools for performance evaluation of new wireless network technologies.  He participates in the development of the open-source network simulator NS-3 where he maintains Wi-Fi and LTE modules.

The seminar is free and open.
