[SEMINAR] March 16, 2021 – Evgeny Khorov – Still open issues in Wi-Fi 6

We are happy to invite you to the next talk of Moscow Telecommunication Seminar which will be held at 6.30 PM (MSK, UTC+03:00), on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, in Zoom.

Title: Still open issues in Wi-Fi 6

Speaker: Evgeny Khorov, IITP RAS, NRU HSE, MIPT.

Abstract: According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index, Wi-Fi is the most popular Internet access technology which serves over half of global traffic. In the talk, we will focus on the recently released IEEE 802.11 ax standard aka Wi-Fi 6. After a brief introduction to the novelties of Wi-Fi 6, we will discuss peculiarities of resource allocation in Wi-Fi 6 networks and show how they modify the classical schedulers for wireless networks. We will explore how the vision on the interference problem is changed over time and how to manage carrier sensing in dense (or sparse) environments.
