Wireless technologies have percolated into people's daily lives for personal communication, mobile internet surfing, global positioning, digital media broadcasting, and smart home automation. The proliferation was led by multiple and heterogeneous technologies to accommodate to diverse settings and application requirements. However, as are victims of their own success; As much as they are specialized, they are largely ignorant of each other. This leads to operations that are non-cooperative, or even disruptive to others. For example, technologies race to preempt wireless channel and they destroy packets of others with their own, causing significant spectrum under-utilization. In this talk I will discuss about transparent Cross-technology Communication (CTC) which serves as a fundamental building block to collaborative networking among wireless standards. Through the novel technology we explore the opportunities of heterogeneous networks without affecting today's advanced homogeneous wireless networks and services, in the aim to turn the curse of wireless coexistence and heterogeneity into blessing.


Song Min Kim is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science, George Mason University. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2016. His research concentrates on diverse wireless networks and their interoperation, to bring efficient and reliable networking in the IoT era. His work is system-oriented and heavily involves prototype implementations on embedded devices. His designs are transferred to industry partners and are under patents for their commercialization impact. His research appeared in top-tier conferences in the areas of sensor systems, wireless networking, and mobile computing.
