Biography: Jianmin Lu joined the Huawei Technologies in 1999. During the last two decades, he conducted various researches on wireless communications especially on physic layer and MAC layer and developed 3G, 4G and 5G products. He received more than 50 patents during the research. He was deeply involved in 3GPP2(EVDO/UMB), WiMAX/802.16m and 3GPP(LTE/NR) standardization and contributed several key technologies such as flexible radio frame structure, radio resource management and MIMO. His current research interest is in the area of signal processing, protocol and networking for the next generation wireless communication. He is currently Executive Director of Huawei Wireless Technology Lab.
Title: Toward the future wireless network
Abstract: Today, we are not only experiencing an explosive increase of mobile data traffic, but also witnessing the fusion of real and digital worlds. Various types of intelligent services are emerging, such as autonomous vehicles, immersive media, remote healthcare, factory automation, etc. The accelerated fusion of digital and real-world lifestyles demonstrates an unprecedentedly demands for current wireless networks, as it requires such networks to support smart devices everywhere with highly qualified services. Future wireless networks will present a thorough change, from solely providing network connection, to simultaneously supporting beyond communications. As the wireless network moving from a single-functional toward a multi-functional infrastructure, plenty of innovative technologies will be integrated and enabled, including AI, sensing, task process, and so on. The realization of simultaneous support of ultimate connections and pervasive intelligent services is expected in a near future due to the evolvement of such wireless networks. Plus, to achieve higher spectrum efficiency, the fundamental research is more demanding, such as so called electromagnetic information theory. Traditionally the antenna system is independently designed without considering the channel propagation, user distribution and traffic type. But with the massive antenna ports in higher frequency, the gain of combining Maxwell and Shannon Theory might be possible.
