Title: Media Services in the 5G Era

Abstract: 5G is an end-to-end ecosystem to enable a fully mobile and connected society. As such, its scope is much broader than 4G, encompassing a rich set of use cases (e.g., pervasive video, telemedicine, wearables, home monitoring, smart cars, remote control, cloud robotics) and correspondingly a very wide range of requirements on communications, computing and storage. As part of the 5G standards development, we present on emerging multimedia usages and service evolution, and also discuss more specific opportunities and challenges around 4K/UHD content delivery, virtual/augmented reality, mobile edge computing (MEC), network function virtualization (NFV) and enhanced core and radio access network (RAN) capabilities. Relevant standardization work in SDOs such as 3GPP, ETSI, ITU, MPEG, IEEE, NGMN, 5GIG, METIS, GSMA, etc. will also be reviewed.

Title: Cellular Networks and Mobile Performance

Abstract: Even though the cellular networks are evolving from 2G to current LTE and beyond, the content quality and required bandwidth is growing even faster. There are various solutions that are being pursued in the industry to help with loading content faster over cellular connections. I will be going over some of the challenges faced by cellular networks and the solutions that are being pursued.
