IEEE DySPAN 2012 to Explore Global Advancement of Spectrum Engineering & Smart Radio System Technologies from October 16 – 19, 2012 in Bellevue, Washington

New York, NY, September 14, 2012 --(PR.com)-- The IEEE Symposium on New Frontiers in Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks (DySPAN 2012) will hold its 6th annual event from October 16 – 19, 2012 in Bellevue, Washington dedicated to the international commercialization of smart radio systems, enhanced utilization of “white spaces” and continued advancement of dynamic spectrum access (DSA) technologies. This includes four full days of technical and policy symposia consisting of more than 50 original paper presentations, business panel discussions, live and video demonstrations and new technology poster displays.

“IEEE DySPAN was founded in 2005 to further the discussion of radically new spectrum access technologies,” says Dr. Victor Bahl of Microsoft Research, this year’s General Chairperson. “Over the past seven years, we have painstakingly worked to prepare the highest quality agenda featuring the field’s finest minds. These efforts have not only greatly increased the prominence of this event, but also furthered the international efforts of scientists, researchers and regulators to greatly overcome the spectrum access issues standing in the way of the development of healthy ecosystems worldwide.”

Commencing on Tuesday, October 16, IEEE DySPAN 2012 will open with a full day of tutorials dedicated to “Programming Cognitive Radio Using Sora,” “Spectrum Consumption Modeling and Model-based Spectrum Management,” “TV White Space Standardization Activities,” Spectrum Sharing Using Geolocation Databases,” and “Hands-on Introductions to USRP Software Defined Radio.”

On the following morning, the conference will then proceed with a three-day comprehensive schedule of executive addresses and technical and policy presentations. Among this year’s highlights will be the keynotes of numerous leading industry authorities such as Henry Tirri, CTO & Executive Vice President of Nokia; Mark Gorenberg, Managing Director of Hummer Winblad Venture Partners; Charles R. Kalmanek, Vice President-Research of AT&T Services, Inc.; Vanu Bose, President & CEO of Vanu, Inc.; and Rajesh Pankaj, Senior Vice President, Engineering of Qualcomm Research. Another significant event will be the high-level panel discussion on “Standards Support for Dynamic Spectrum Access” presented by representatives of the Wireless Innovation Forum and industry experts specializing in the development of TV White Space-enabled spectrum solutions.

From Wednesday, October 17 through Friday, October 19, IEEE DySPAN 2012 will also entail numerous technical and plenary sessions focused on the research of noted scientists representing institutions like the University of Oslo, Motorola Solutions, Kings College London, Microsoft Research Lab Asia, RWTH Aachen University Germany, Ericsson Research, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Texas A&M University in Qatar, Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs and the University Politehnica in Bucharest. Specific topics to be discussed include “Using TV Receiver Information to Increase Cognitive White Space Spectrum,” “Enable Flexible Spectrum Access with Spectrum Virtualization,” “Femto Cell Architectures for Robust Communication Using Whitespaces,” “Dynamic Spectrum Access in Heterogeneous LTE+ Networks,” “Opportunistic Spectrum Access in TVWS” and “Mechanisms for LTE Coexistence in TV White Space.”

In addition, other conference highlights include the presentation of cutting-edge demonstrations showcasing the performance of various dynamic spectrum access tasks ranging from control channel establishment, network-blind handover to interference cancellation and security enforcement. Discussed will be the latest techniques for “Enforcing Dynamic Spectrum Access with Spectrum Permits,” “Designing and Implementing an Underlay Control Channel for Cognitive Radios,” “Demonstrating Radio Environment Map Construction from Massive Data Sets” and creating “Receiver-driven Handover between Independent Networks.”

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profession...
"There's a growing demand from users for things to be faster.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations.
