INGR Webinar Series: Future In-Building Networks
This Webinar will highlight current technologies and future evolution of in-building networks that handle most Internet traffic nowadays. Buildings today are networked via copper (e.g. Ethernet, Powerline Communications, PLC) and radio (e.g. Wi-Fi, ZigBee). In the next decade, machines and devices will communicate wireless and support e.g. reliable real-time video. For the future Internet of Things, dense in-building networks will be deployed which complement copper and radio by optical technologies, both over fixed (fiber-to-the-room, FTTR) and wireless links (light fidelity, LiFi). We highlight unique features of light as a fixed and wireless medium in buildings and present recent technology trends to enable new features for high performance, integrated sensing, low cost and enhanced sustainability.
