COnvergent and SEmantic-aware Mobile networks and services
Providing a superior user experience is the key to success in mobile services. The recent massive success of the iPhone provides ample illustration. Increasing the data rate in the infrastructure is one way to improve user experience. However, deploying more infrastructure may take significant time, require large investments in more rural settings, and may not always be energy efficient. In this proposal we aim at providing substantial and measurable increase of the Quality of Experience – QoE for users on new and existing infrastructure by proposing a smarter, faster and convergent network that is based on deriving and exploiting extensive knowledge of the user preferences and needs. The practical question whose answer may provide a relatively large societal and business impact is: Could a smarter, faster and convergent network result in obtaining an order of magnitude increase in QoE while reducing cost and maximizing profits?

More about our Research
IN BRIEF The main research focus of Wireless@KTH is to solve key technical problems in systems in Infrastructure for Mobile Services and Systems for Mobile Service of tomorrow. Not only physical constraints (i.e. physics of radio propagation, capacity limitations in networks etc) are considered in our research In designing future systems for mobile service, end-user and service provider demands, constraints and business logic also have to be modeled and considered to make an adequate and sustainable technical design.
