報告主題：Massive Random Access for 5G and Beyond: An Optimization Perspective
報告摘要：Massive access, also known as massive connectivity or massive machine-type communication (mMTC), is one of the three main use cases of the fifth-generation (5G) and beyond 5G (B5G) wireless networks defined by the International Telecommunication Union. Different from conventional human-type communication, massive access aims at realizing efficient and reliable communications for a massive number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The main challenge of mMTC is that the BS can efficiently and reliably detect the active devices based on the superposition of their unique signatures from a large pool of uplink devices, among which only a small fraction is active. In this talk, we shall present some recent results of massive access from an optimization perspective. In particular, we shall present optimization formulations and algorithms as well as some phase transition analysis results.
