Mikhail Liubogoshchev et al. Present a New Platform Enabling Communication between Applications and the 5G Network at IEEE Globecom 2018 in Abu Dhabi, UAE

At IEEE Globecom 2018, the largest telecomunication conference organized by IEEE Communication Society, Mikhail Liubogoschev, Evgeny Khorov (IITP RAS) and Suwen Tang (Huawei Technologies) have presented the new platform for enabling cross-layer optimization in 5G networks.

The main drawback of the current protocol stack is that various protocols have been designed independently. Although they are designed to operate optimally, because of lack of information exchange between non-neighboring protocol layers and different entities in the network,
… Their dealings come to naught
And trouble is their labor’s only fruit.

xStream provides a control channel between the applications and the networking equipment, which – together with new algorithms – triple the network capacity in terms of satisfied users.

The platform has been designed in collaboration with Huawei Technologies. The research was supported by Huawei Technologies and Megagrant.

The results are published in
