IEEE WCNC 2013 Opens Registration for Leading Wireless Communications & Networking Event to be Held April 7 – 10, 2013 in Shanghai, China

New York, NY, January 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The IEEE Wireless Communications & Networking Conference (WCNC) has initiated the registration process for its next annual meeting to be held April 7 – 10, 2013 in Shanghai, China. With accommodations currently available at the Oriental Riverside Hotel directly connected to the Shanghai International Convention Center, this year’s event ties together the numerous amenities of mainland China’s “showpiece” cultural, technological and financial center with the next stage of visionary research, services and applications that are actively furthering worldwide business, entertainment and social practices.

Scheduled to include more than 600 technical and executive presentations, IEEE WCNC 2013 will open Sunday, April 7 with a full day of tutorials and workshops devoted to topics such as “Cooperative Wireless Communications,” “Mobility Management in Future Wireless Networks,” “Game-Theoretic Techniques for the Energy Efficiency of Wireless Communications,” “Visible Light Communication,” “Mobile Cloud Computing & Networking” and “Future Green End-to-End Wireless Networks (FREENET).”

Monday, April 8 will then mark the start of the conference’s executive and technical program detailing the entire range of next-stage digital cellular, PCS, multimedia, channel modeling, radio resource management, green networking and emerging mobile applications. Also highlighting this agenda will be the keynote addresses of numerous world-renowned researchers and corporate communications leaders like:
-Professor Fumiyuki Adachi of Tohoku University in Japan, who will address the newest developments in gigabit wireless technology research in his presentation titled “Spectrum & Energy-Efficient Distributed Antenna Network for Future Wireless Communications.” This will include methods for achieving higher-than-1Gbps broadband data transmissions and implementing distributed antenna network (DAN) architectures that significantly reduce the transmit power of wireless networks
-Dr. Chih-Lin I, Chief Scientist of China Mobile Inc., who will speak on “Towards Green & Soft” and the efforts of China Mobile to deliver a technical roadmap for accommodating his country’s network capacities, which are dramatically expected to increase with 1000x traffic loads by 2020. Other talking points will cover the creation of green, energy-efficient networks composed of soft elements used to further support extremely high-density, yet low-cost and low-power deployments of the latest network communications
-Professor Victor O.K. Li of the University of Hong Kong in China, who will ask “Can Wireless Technologies Save the Environment?” and then speak about the challenges and opportunities presented by the advancement and proliferation of the latest wireless technologies. This includes applications such as cloud computing, web applications, global information systems and the Internet, which have fueled a major increase in electric power consumption, as well as devices like MP3 players, personal computers and smart phones that have created huge disposal problems worldwide
-Dr. Wen Tong, Wireless CTO of Huawei, who will discuss “Progress Toward the Future of Mobile Broadband Communications” and the need to fundamentally improve spectrum efficiency and re-architect radio networking protocols and infrastructures
-Professor P. R. Kumar of Texas A&M University, who will address “A Clean Slate Approach to Wireless Networks Security,” while proposing a theoretical framework for reversing the paradigm of placing design and performance above security. In his talk, Prof. Kumar will also highlight the protocols necessary for enabling good nodes and provably secure and nearly optimal functioning networks in hostile environments

Still under development and soon to be announced is the IEEE WCNC 2013 business panel and technical program, which will consist of the presentation of hundreds of original papers. All of the papers, which were selected after a rigorous review process that included over 1,000 submissions from scores of countries, will cover the entire range of wireless communications and networking topics. Among the many previously discussed subjects are “A WSN Solution for Light Aircraft Pilot Health Monitoring,” “Clustering Methods for Base Station Cooperation,” “Green Resource Allocation for MIMO-OFDM Relay Networks,” “Machine-to-Machine Communications in OFDMA Cellular Networks,” “Mobile Sensor Scheduling for Timely Sweep Coverage,” “Radio Imaging by Cooperative Wireless Networks,” and “Controlling Self-healing Cellular Networks Using Fuzzy Logic.”

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos. We basically provide monitoring for them, structure for their cloud services and we fit into the DevOps world" explained David Gildeh, Co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions.

He discussed the evaluation of communication standards and IoT messaging protocols, data analytics considerations, edge-to-cloud tec...
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
