Coexistence of LTE and WiFi heterogeneous networks via inter network coordination

Fast increases in mobile data demand and inherently limited RF spectrum motivate the use of dynamic spectrum sharing between different radio technologies such as WiFi and LTE, most notably in small cell (HetNet) scenarios. In our project, we propose an ...

Smartphone application delay optimizations

Despite the rapid hardware upgrades, current smartphones suffer various unpredictable delays during operation, e.g., when launching an app, leading to poor user experience. In this work, we investigate the behavior of reads and writes in smartphones. We ...
