Description: In this talk, we present an overview of cellular IoT that provides infrastructure-based connectivity for IoT applications. In addition, some key features of 5G in relation to IoT applications are explained. In particular, we focus on machine-type communication (MTC) in LTE-A and 5G, which support massive connectivity for IoT devices and sensors and provide new approaches for MTC. We also briefly address IoT security issues and data-aided sensing.
Presenter: Jinho Choi was born in Seoul, Korea. He received B.E. (magna cum laude) degree in electronics engineering in 1989 from Sogang University, Seoul, and M.S.E. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Sci- ence and Technology (KAIST) in 1991 and 1994, respectively. He is with the School of Information Technology, Burwood, Deakin University, Australia, as a Professor. Prior to joining Deakin in 2018, he was with Swansea University, United Kingdom, as a Professor/Chair in Wireless, and Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), Korea, as a Professor. His research interests include the Internet of Things (IoT), wireless communications, and statistical signal processing. He authored two books published by Cambridge University Press in 2006 and 2010. Prof. Choi received the 1999 Best Paper Award for Signal Processing from EURASIP, 2009 Best Paper Award from WPMC (Conference), and is Senior Member of IEEE. Currently, he is an Editor of IEEE Trans. Communications and IEEE Wireless Communications Letters and a Division Editor of Journal of Communications and Networks (JCN). We also had served as an Associate Editor or Editor of other journals including IEEE Communications Letters, JCN, IEEE Trans. Vehicular Technology, and ETRI journal.
