Title: Improving Scalability of ICN by Designing Content Location

Information-centric networking (ICN) has attracted wide attention as a new network architecture which can efficiently deliver digital content and Internet of Things (IoT) data. However, prefix aggregation of forwarding information base (FIB) of ICN routers is difficult because organization names are independent of location. Therefore, reducing the required size of FIBs at routers is one of the key issues to realize the ICN in large scale. In this talk, I present to use content delivery networks (CDNs) as a method of allocating originals of content at routers to effectively reduce the size of FIBs of ICN routers. Using the measured data of web-content location, I show that this method can reduce the size of FIBs by about 45% on average.

Topic: Defining High Performance Antenna Designs for 6G Terahertz Future Communication

As the 5G systems broadly deployed all over the world, research in communications has now started to focus on the next generation mobile communication (6G). The sixth-generation (6G) is just not a simple upgrade of 5G. Careful discussions and plan on what to achieve with 6G must be conducted. 6G wireless communications require substantial research and development in antennas and wave propagation characterization intended for Terahertz frequencies. Transmissions in the sub-THz band require low loss, low permittivity propagation, and high manufacturing tolerances for relevant antenna packages. In this talk, the definition of high-performance antenna for 6G will be discussed so that the impactful 6G applications to human life may be delivered.
