Keynote title: Deep Learning Platform for B5G Mobile Network
The 3G and 4G mobile communications had been developed for many years. The 5G mobile communication is scheduled to be launched in 2020. In the future, a wireless network is of various size of cells and different type of communication technologies, forming a special architecture of Heterogeneous Networks (HetNet). Under the complex network architecture, interference and handover problems are critical challenges in access network. How to efficiently manage small cells and to choose an adequate access mechanism for the better quality of service is a vital research issue. Traditional network architecture can no longer support existing network requirements. It is necessary to develop a novel network architecture. Therefore, this keynote speech will share a solution of deep learning-based B5G mobile network which can enhance and improve communication performance through combing some specific technologies. e.g., deep learning, fog computing, cloud computing, cloud radio access network (C-RAN) and fog radio access network (F-RAN).
