Informacja o autorze:

Although new to the industry, Arnesh Vijay has years of teaching experience, whereby, he has held the positions of Research & Teaching assistant and HE Lecturer at various educational institutions in England. Arnesh graduated with a PhD in telecommunication engineering from Warwick University, England – specializing in visible light technology. His research project titled ‘RoVL’ won the ‘ IET best project prize for technical innovation – 2013’ ; and his project presentation won IoP second prize at ‘3 – Minute wonder competition‘ at Cambridge University. He is alumnus of University of Glasgow, Scotland, where he obtained Master’s degree in electrical & electronic engineering. Arnesh is a member of number of technical institutions across the UK, and was awarded Associate Fellowship in 2014 by the HEA (Higher Education Academy). Currently Arnesh work’s as Radio Research Engineer at Nokia Networks, Poland. One amongst his several interests include, topics related to mobile technology, more specifically, discussing the issues surrounding the expansion of mobile telecommunications into broad range of frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum.


Mobile technology is one of the rapidly evolving technologies’ even since its first introduction in the late 1980s. The development witnessed is not just in the quality-of-service offered, but also in the sophisticated features and applications granted to the cell phone user. To fulfil this ever-growing demand for high bandwidth services; the possibility to extend mobile services into alternate frequency bands of the electromagnetic spectrum is a subject widely debated. One such venture to explore this prospect is the ‘RoVL’ project — an acronym for Radio on Visible Light Communication system. The RoVL project was carried out at Warwick University, England; whereby the transmission of GSM signals through visible light channels was investigated. Five major challenges affecting the mobile signal transmission through visible light channels was identified and addressed through a combination of mathematical modeling, simulation and hardware implementation. Although there are number of IEEE publications pertaining to this research, the aim of this seminar would be to provide a concise overview of the project, and discuss its extension and incorporation into future 5G systems. As it is universally known, one among the several objectives’ of the 5G technology is to provide high data rate services — and for this, extensive research investigating the deployment of upper cm-wave and mm-wave frequency bands has been carried out by researchers all around the globe. When considering alternate frequency bands, several design issues in physical layer, and in the MAC and higher up layers of the protocol stack will be encountered. All this, in combination with the findings of RoVL project will be discussed in the presentation. The sole intention here is to open avenue for discussions on the possibility of deploying new and alternate frequency bands for rapidly expanding mobile telecommunication systems.
