Mobile Telephony and Its Economic and Social Impacts
(Forum Chairs: Dr. Jacob Baal-Schem and Prof. Jean-Marie Dilhac)
Since the introduction of mobile telephony in the early 1950s, the demand for this service
exploded. The advent of the GSM network in Europe provided the first wide-area
coverage for mobile access to data and multimedia. Military and Corporate users were
first to use these devices as it provided fast and secure access to the latest information. It
seems that the latent demand for mobile telecommunications services continued to be
very strong. By the year 2000 the penetration rate reached 100% of the population in
some European countries. Still, a massive growth in the market for mobile multimedia
occurred in 2001. During the years, synergies between entertainment, computing and
telecommunications led to new applications. In 2002, mobile subscribers worldwide have
outnumbered fixed-line subscribers.
Japan's position as a world leader in mobile communications is widely acknowledged.
Japan’s mobile service began, like many other countries, with car phones, which were
introduced by NTT in 1979. Nowadays, a wide variety of applications and contents are
provided in the mobile communications market in Japan.
The Forum provides a Historical overview of the development of mobile
telecommunications from its birth, with a special view on its economic and social
impacts. Presentations will cover developments and services in the U.S., France and
Japan, from the emergence of mobile telephony until today.

Challenges and Future Prospect of 4G Wireless:
The Operators’ View
(Organizer and Chair: Dr. Chia-Chin Chong, NTT DOCOMO USA Labs, USA)
Next generation mobile broadband wireless networks such as 3GPP LTE/LTE-Advanced
and Mobile WiMAX/IEEE 802.16m have been envisioned as the 4G mobile
technologies. Both standards were submitted to ITU-R as candidates’ technology for the
IMT-Advanced. The advantages based on throughput, latency, spectral efficiency, and
advanced antenna support, ultimately enabling them to provide higher performance than
today’s 3G wireless technologies.
Coverage improvement and capacity enhancement are always the essential requirements
for wireless broadband networks in order to deliver cost-effective wireless services. Due
to significant loss of signal strength along the propagation path especially at higher
frequency and the transmit power constraint of mobile terminals, the sustainable coverage
area for a specific high data rate is often of limited geographical size. In addition,
blocking and random fading frequently result in areas of poor reception or even dead spot
within the coverage region especially in-building scenario. Moreover, due to the higher
demand for good quality multimedia mobile applications, such as video streaming and
video-on-demand, capacity enhancement is a must for the next generation cellular
Recently, the concepts of femtocells and fixed mobile convergence (FMC) have received
a lot of attention among the industrials. Both femtocells and FMC capabilities can be
used to overcome poor indoor cellular quality and capacity of a system in a cost effective
fashion. The emerging femtocell option is aimed at those who live and work in places
where the macrocellular network coverage is limited and want to use their conventional
single-mode cellular phones. Users need to have a femtocell, similar to a WiFi access
point, in order to boost signals throughout their home or office. On the other hand, FMC
combines WiFi and cellular technologies for those with dual-mode cellular phones. This
allows users to roam seamlessly between their internal WiFi network and cellular
network. FMC capabilities can be used to avoid in-building cellular charges if a private
WiFi network is already in place.
In this panel, industry experts from leading mobile operators will discuss the challenges
ahead of full scale commercialization of IMT-Advanced technology including tug-of-war
among competitive standards (e.g., LTE vs Mobile WiMAX, femtocells vs FMC) and
future prospect of 4G (e.g., killer applications and services).

Advanced Communications and Information Technologies for
Intelligent Transportation Systems
(Chair: Dr. David Wei, Advisors: Drs. Kshirasagar Naik and Teruo Higashino)
Road transportation has become an integral part of society because of the need for
transporting people and goods. Road transportation impacts the quality of life in several
ways, including safety, cost, time spent traveling, and environmental issue. Intelligent
Transportation System (ITS) deals with these issues through advanced communications
and information technologies, including wireless communications, the Internet, the GPS,
and sensor networks. The central idea in an ITS system is to deliver useful information to
all kinds of motorists, such as ordinary car drivers, drivers of emergency vehicles, drivers
of transit vehicles, drivers of service vehicles, and the police. Useful information to
motorists involve physical conditions of road segments, traffic conditions along road
segments, roadblocks including accidents and repair works, and availability of services
along their paths, to name a few. An ITS system is expected to shorten driving time,
make driving safe, make availability of medical assistance and other helps quicker, assist
law enforcement, and contribute to a better environment.
Given the vast expanse of an ITS system and the seemingly large cost of deploying such
a system, it is important that different parties cooperate in such an endeavor. Several
governments or organizations around the world, including the U.S. Department of
Transportation, the Vehicle, Road and Traffic Intelligence Society of Japan, and ERTICO
of ITS Europe have defined their own ITS architecture. Those initial thrusts on ITS have
motivated researchers and engineers to identify key problems that must be addressed for
an ITS system to be successful. There have been ongoing research on different aspects of
ITS systems, but a great deal of work still remains to be done. The goal of this forum is to
provide an open discussion for the recent research results on a broad range of topics
relevant to ITS architecture, network support, communication-based information
technologies, and application development.
Design & Development Forum on
Modeling and Simulation of Wireless Networks
(Forum Chairs: Jack L. Burbank & Jon R. Ward, Johns Hopkins University, USA)
Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is a critical element in the design, development, and
test and evaluation (T&E) of any network product or solution. In many cases, M&S
provides the only method to gain insight into the performance of the eventual product or
solution in a large-scale environment, and allows for more informed design trade studies.
The goal of this technical session is to provide attendees an overview of many of the
M&S tools and techniques that are available to assist them in their wireless projects. In
particular, the forum consists of seven relevant presentation topics:
1. Commercial Wireless Networking Explained- an overview of key existing and
emerging wireless networking technologies, such as WiFi, WiMAX, cellular,
Bluetooth, ZigBee, UWB, and commercial architectural frameworks such as
International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT
2. Wireless Network M&S Tools - an overview of existing network M&S tools, such as
OPNET, NS2, QualNet, and GloMoSim, contrasting the strengths and weaknesses of
these tools as related to M&S of wireless networks.
3. Wireless Networking Hardware-in-the-loop M&S - an overview of hardware-in-theloop (HITL) M&S and testbed methods, describing the appropriate applications of
HITL applications, and providing novel examples of HITL techniques for assessing
the performance of wireless networking technologies and devices.
4. Distributed simulation - an overview of distributed computing methods, and discuss
the application of network M&S tools in a distributed environment in order to achieve
large-scale wireless network M&S capabilities.
5. Waveform M&S Tools - compare and contrast existing waveform M&S tools, such as
MathWorks MATLAB and SimuLink, National Instruments LabVIEW, and Agilent
Signal Studio, with a focus on waveform characteristics common to wireless
networking technologies (e.g., OFDM, OFDMA, MIMO).
6. Propagation M&S Tools - compare and contrast existing propagation M&S tools,
such as Wireless Insite, considering both outdoor and indoor propagation scenarios
(indoor – same floor, indoor – different floor), as well as combined outdoor-indoor
7. Network Simulation with NS3 - The ns-3 network simulation environment is the
result of a multi-year effort funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, and is
designed to replace the aging but popular ns-2 simulator. We will start by discussing
some of the basic concepts used when creating simulations of computer networks, and
the types of questions that can be analyzed by network simulation tools. Then we will
discuss some of the basic design of ns-3 and the tradeoffs that went into those design
decisions. Finally, we will demonstrate a simple ns-3 simulation and show the results.
