A Post-5G Network to Break the Eight Fallacies of Distributed Computing

To host time-sensitive applications in video-dominated networks, 5G calls for a tighter convergence of IT and (optical) transport. Our dynamic deterministic networks are serious candidates and could overturn the famous eight fallacies of distributed computing.

A headache interface. My experience with the brain computer interface - from a complete failure to a moderate success.

Presumably a Brain Computer Interface may be used (among many other applications) for curing chronic headache. But BCIs are also good in giving you one. I tried out a consumer-grade electroencephalography set offering a C++ API. This meant lots of integration testing, many failures and moderate successes.

Interoperability Solution for IEEE 802.1X based Authentication unsupported Customer Premises Equipment

8021x based authentication enables node devices in network to perform AAA operation (Authentication, Authorization and Accounting). Authentication is made possible by a handshake mechanism between the node device and the CPE connected by means of a challenge of request and response exchange. The node device sends out a challenge request ...

Transmission of 30-GBd polarization-multiplexed probabilistically shaped 4096-QAM over 50.9-km SSMF

© 2019 Optical Society of America under the terms of the OSA Open Access Publishing Agreement We demonstrate the transmission of a 30-GBd polarization-multiplexed probabilistically shaped 4096-ary quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) signal over 50.9-km standard signal-mode fiber (SSMF), with a net single-carrier bit rate of 484.4 Gb/s carrying 16.1 information ...

Microservice Fingerprinting and Classification using Machine Learning

Application aware data centers promise various benefits for data center management in terms of resource provisioning, power estimation, network management and security protection. However, the emerging microservices make it challenging for data center operators to accurately identify what applications are run by tenants, due to the highly dynamic and heterogeneous ...

Estimation of groundwater storage from seismic data using deep learning

© 2019 European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers Convolutional neural networks can provide a potential framework to characterize groundwater storage from seismic data. Estimation of key components, such as the amount of groundwater stored in an aquifer and delineate water table level, from active-source seismic data are performed in this ...

Tiger: Wearable glasses for the 20-20-20 rule to alleviate computer vision syndrome

We propose Tiger, an eyewear system for helping users follow the 20-20-20 rule to alleviate the Computer Vision Syndrome symptoms. It monitors user's screen viewing activities and provides real-time feedback to help users follow the rule. For accurate screen viewing detection, we devise a light-weight multi-sensory fusion approach with three ...

Enhanced Resource Scheduling for Platooning in 5G V2X Systems

Vehicular platooning with short inter-vehicular distances promises to achieve better road traffic efficiency and high fuel savings. Manoeuvring and maintaining such Platoons is very challenging and requires mutual awareness and coordination between the vehicles through a highly reliable and low latency communication mechanism. Thus, cellular vehicle-to-vehicle communication is a key ...

1.2Tbit/s Single Channel and 45Tbit/s WDM Field Transmission

We demonstrate the first field fiber transmission experiment with channel rates >1 Tbit/s field-deployed production network of Etisalat. Full C-Band transmission with only 40 channels is demonstrated over 93 km SSMF using EDFAs only. After FEC decoding a record net capacity of 45 Tbit/s was achieved.

5G New Radio User Equipment Power Modelling and Potential Energy Savings

Currently the 3rd generation partnership project (3GPP) is studying how user equipment power saving can be achieved for the upcoming fifth generation New Radio technology. To accomplish this objective a power model has been developed for evaluation of schemes related to Radio Resource Control (RRC) Connected mode, Radio Resource Management, ...

An early characterisation of wearing variability on motion signals for wearables

We explore a new variability observed in motion signals acquired from modern wearables. Wearing variability refers to the variations of the device orientation and placement across wearing events. We collect the accelerometer data on a smartwatch and an earbud and analyse how motion signals change due to the wearing variability. ...

Unsupervised Domain Adaptation for Design of Robust Sensory Systems

Despite significant advances in the performance of sensory inference models, their poor robustness to changing environmental conditions and hardware remains a major hurdle for widespread adoption. In this paper, we introduce the concept of unsupervised domain adaptation which is a technique to adapt sensory inference models to new domains only ...
