Academic Degree
Dr. Eng.
Field of Specialization
Mobile Communications
Outline Activities
His interest covers next generation wireless communication systems as described by keywords such as ubiquitous, mobile and broadband. Due to traffic explosion that has been caused by proliferation of smartphones, area coverage of each base station has to be reduced. This way of increasing system capacity is widely known as "small cell". To ensure continuous coverage for wireless communication, he has engaged in studies of new wireless backhual that easily expands coverage by small cells with novel wireless multihop protocol suits. He teaches communication theory for under graduate students and wireless communication systems for graduate students.
Research
Research Interests
  • Open4G ~ A new mobile eco-system changing flow of fee for value of communication
    keyword : 4th generation, mobile, communication, eco-system
    2009.10.
  • Wireless backhaul with multihop capability enabled by MIMO techniques
    keyword : MIMO, mesh network, wireless, multihop
    2006.04A study on autonomous backhaul systems for low cost micro/picocellular systems. Key of the present way is an introduction of wireless mesh networks built into every base node. In order to enhance link capacity of the backhaul system, MIMO techniques are deployed. .
  • Capacity enhancements of TDD-CDMA cellular systems handling IP multimedia traffic
    keyword : TDD, CDMA, Cellular System, VoIP
    2003.10~2004.03Developments of capacity enhancement techniques for TDD-CDMA cellular systems associated with IP traffic..
Current and Past Project
  • Internet and mobile communication are the symbols of today’s ICT. The former yields many new revolutions in our social life and the latter provides a pervasive communication media by which people can communicate each other anytime, anywhere and anybody. However, the current mobile communication systems only render limited access to the services being matured in Internet due to their limited bandwidth, a nature of wireless media.
    Enormous services and growing knowledge which Internet is getting to hold should be also accessible wirelessly in a post ICT. Realization of such a ubiquitous broadband communication is the objective of MIMO-MESH project.
