Mauro Boldi graduated with full marks at Politecnico di Torino, Italy, in 1998. He joined CSELT, the research centre of Telecom Italia, in the same year, where he has been involved in radio access network topics, with activities on antenna and propagation, radio over fiber solutions, collaborative networks, energy efficiency. He is author of patents and papers on the same topics, and he is also author of the chapter on Coordinated Multipoint solutions in the book entitled “Mobile and wireless communications for IMT-advanced and beyond”, published after the Winner+ project in 2011 by J.Wiley&Sons. Recently Mauro contributed as an author also to the chapter on 5G Architecture to the book edited by Cambridge University Press titled “5G Mobile and Wireless Communications Technology”. Mauro has been involved in many European projects, among which Winner+ (where he led the activity on CoMP), Artist4G, Earth (where he was one of the authors of the deliverables on the functional split, one of the basis of the 5G architecture), METIS and METIS II, where he has been the leader of the Work Package on dissemination and visualization topics. Now Mauro plays the same role also in 5G-MoNArch project. He is Telecom Italia delegate in ETSI EE Technical Committee, where he is also vice chairman of the EEPS group, and in ITU-T Study Group 5 on energy efficiency topics. In these roles Mauro acted as Rapporteur of the specification ETS ES 203 228 and ITU-T recommendation L.mnee on the energy efficiency metrics and methods of measurement of the mobile radio access networks.
Enrico Buracchini received, with full marks, the degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna in October 1994. In December 1994, he was employed in the Mobile Services Division of CSELT (R&D labs of Telecom Italia Group), now TILab, as a Research Engineer. His activity concerns the study of multiple access methods (TDMA, CDMA, OFDMA) for mobile communications systems. He is currently managing, as senior project manager, the activities on 5G NR (New Radio) into the Innovation Dept of TIM. He is currently 3GPP RAN1 and ITU R 5D delegate for TIM and he was part of Italian Delegation to ITU R TG8/1 group dedicated to IMT 2000 standardisation. He was recently involved into METIS 2 project dedicated to 5G radio design. He managed, in 2000-2003 period, several consultancy projects for international TIM activities in Austria, Greece and Spain on UMTS.
He was involved in several European research programs dedicated to 3G, 4G and future mobile systems. He published several papers on third and future generation mobile systems, smart antennas, SW radios and Cognitive Radios. Since 2003, he has managed R&D projects dedicated to ‘Systems beyond 3G’ including TILab E2R I & II and E3 activities, where he was also WP leader. He did several lectures @ former Telecom Italia School (SSGRR) on GSM, UMTS, HSDPA, SDMA and SDR, several lectures in Universities (Bologna, Catania, Milano, UPRC, UOA) on “Evolution of mobile systems” and several tutorials in conferences on SDR & CR. Since 2009, he is also lecturer of the course “Mobile telecommunication networks” inside the master on Wireless Systems & Technologies for foreign students of Politecnico di Torino.
Dr.-Ing. Markus Breitbach is working in Group Technology of Deutsche Telekom, Bonn, Germany, as senior expert in the area of end to end network architecture and with a strong background in radio networks. Before he joined Deutsche Telekom in 2006, he has been with a major infrastructure supplier, where he developed concepts for UMTS base station and defined their HSDPA and HSUPA MAC schedulers. In the recent years, he has been working on network virtualisation and conducted a techno-economical assessment of EPC virtualisation. He is currently engaged in 5G NORMA’s architecture work package, allowing him to combine his expertise on RAN and network virtualisation. From Summer 2017, he will join the 5G MoNArch project, where his focus will be on network slicing, network reliability and the setup of a testbed. Holding both a PhD in electrical engineering and an MBA in economics, his ambition is to transfer recent research results into innovative network concepts that fit well into the surrounding business picture.
Dr. Tao Chen is a senior researcher at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland LTD. He is the project coordinator of H2020 COHERENT project (www.ict-coherent.eu), and the board member of EU 5G PPP Steering Board. Dr. Chen received his Ph.D. degree from University of Trento, Italy in 2007. He has more than 20 years of experience in the telecommunications sector. From 2003 to 2007, he worked with CREATE-NET, Italy, carrying out research on high-speed wireless LAN systems, UWB and cognitive radios. Since 2008, he has been with VTT, working on cognitive wireless networks, green communications and 5G network technologies. He is an IEEE senior member. His research interests include dynamic spectrum access, energy efficiency and resource management in heterogeneous wireless networks, software defined networking for 5G mobile networks, and social-aware mobile networks.
Dr. Johannes Riedl finalized his PhD in mathematics in Munich in 2001. Afterwards he joined Siemens Information and Communication Networks as R&D engineer. There he was responsible for the development of innovative carrier network design concepts focusing on IP/Ethernet technologies. Joining Siemens Corporate Technology in July 2005, he is heading since mid of 2006 the research group ‚Industrial Networks’ focusing on wireline communication network technologies for industrial control networks addressing many different industrial domains, like smart grid, factory/process automation, mobility, railway automation, etc. Since 2008 he is representing Siemens on a European level in the Future Internet context and in the area of 5G.
Dr. Ömer Bulakci received the B.Sc. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from the Middle East Technical University (METU), Turkey, in 2006 and the M.Sc. degree in communications engineering from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany in 2008, and the doctoral degree in communications engineering from the Aalto University (formerly Helsinki University of Technology), Finland, in 2013. From 2009 to 2012, he conducted his research activities with emphasis on multi-hop relay networks and radio resource management at Nokia Siemens Networks (currently Nokia Networks), Munich, Germany, in support of his doctorate studies, and contributed to the standardization of relaying in LTE Release 10. Since October 2012, he has been conducting research toward 5G mobile and wireless communications networks and contributing to EU flagship projects METIS and METIS-II at Huawei Technologies GRC, Munich, Germany. He is an author or a co-author of 60+ technical publications and is an inventor of 20+ patents/patent applications. He has served as a TPC member for various IEEE conferences, TPC co-chair of IEEE CSCN 2016 and CSCN 2017, and a reviewer for various IEEE journals.
