Current cellular networks face outbreaks of an extremely high demand for communication capacity and coverage during the mass events. This article discusses a scenario with events in remote areas. It is expected that the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with the directional antennas will become one of the key components of these networks and...
Article
Full-text available
Broadband over Power Lines (BPL) is considered a promising communication technology in the concept of Smart Grids. This paper evaluates networks based on BPL, with a focus on the impact of repeaters in the linear topology of distribution substations. In large-scale Smart Grids network planning, positions of repeaters have to be carefully chosen. Th...

Recently, the use of air base stations located on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has attracted great attention. Static deployment of a sufficient number of UAVs allows uniform wireless coverage in the demanded areas, where the existing cellular infrastructure has white spots or insufficient capacity. However, UAVs mobility may be required for appl...
Article
Full-text available
At present, cellular coverage in many rural areas remains intermittent. Mobile operators may not be willing to deploy expensive network infrastructure to support low-demand regions. For that reason, solutions for the rapid deployment of base stations in areas with insufficient or damaged operator infrastructure are emerging. Utilization of unmanned...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The landscape of the contemporary IoT radio access technologies (RATs) is excessively diverse, especially when it comes to such a complex environment as Smart City. On the one hand, this diversity offers operators sufficient flexibility to select the most appropriate RAT for their target application. On the other hand, it becomes a severe limiting...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The proliferation of virtualization coupled with the increasing power of industry-standard servers and the availability of cloud computing has led to a significant increase in the number of servers and end stations that need to be managed with or without an organization. At this point, data center orchestration and configuration management tools co...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Measurements of consumption whether we talk about gas, water or electricity are becoming more digitized every day. Distribution companies want to be able to read the state of a meter without the need of the physical presence of the employee in the place of interest. This leads to development and implementation of smart grids using smart (embedded)...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
User access control systems have become a standard part of security systems in many consumer as well as industrial applications. The majority of these systems utilize tokens to gain an access into restricted areas such as buildings, garages, and workplaces. They are available in different shapes and sizes, but their communication interface often ut...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Nowadays, many emerging technologies, such as Augmented and Virtual reality, require extremely high-rate data transmissions. This imposes an increasing demand on the network throughput, which currently surpasses the capabilities of commercially available wireless communication systems. To address this constraint, some companies are considering the...
