Cognitive networking: optimizing network resources across heterogeneous networks

Speaker: Ingrid Moerman

Company/ Institute: IBBT – UGent

Event: Advances on Cognitive Radio Technology in Flanders

Date: 4 October 2011


This presentation discusses how cognitive networking can be used for the optimization and sharing of network resources between different devices, different technologies and different networks.
This talk will first discuss how cognitive networking can lead to improved network performance by optimizing all layers of the protocols stack. Afterwards, a negotiation and cooperation methodology is introduced that is capable of dynamically activating and configuring network optimization techniques based on the network requirements (i.e.: the incentives) of the different networks.
Finally, the presentation discusses how both low-level network services and high-level application services can become part of the cognitive optimization cycle.
