Keynote Title: Data-driven QoS and QoE Management in Smart Cities
Communication and information are the basis of smart city development. This talk is about the real-time management of communication performance for smart cities that have a vast number of networking nodes and services. I will focus on both QoS and QoE, and discuss the challenges in guaranteeing such performance by analyzing the characteristics of smart city communication networks. The opportunity of employing data to automatically manage QoS/QoE perforamnce will be presented.
