Weekly Seminar: “NB-IoT Testbed and Use Cases: Device Design and Experience with Real-World Operator Network”

25/02/2020 - 25/02/2020



NB-IoT is a recent addition to 3GPP 4G standardization which represents a first step towards massive Machine-Type Communications (mMTC) services to be further developed as part of 5G technology. In this talk, we describe the collaboration of ICONIC centre research team at the University of Novi Sad with a mobile operator in Serbia in the domain of designing NB-IoT end-user devices that serve as a platform to test the network performance and collect large data sets of measurements related to device radio conditions, energy consumption and communication procedures. Several fully developed application scenarios are presented and first-hand experience provided that include complete end-to-end NB-IoT based communication between end-user devices and cloud servers deployed over real-world mobile operator network.


Dr. Ivan Mezei was born in 1975 in Novi Sad, Yugoslavia. He graduated (dipl. ing. and M.Sc.) on the Faculty of technical sciences, University of Novi Sad, Serbia, and defended PhD thesis “Auction aggregation algorithms for the task assignment in multihop wireless sensor and actuator networks” in 2012. He has been working at the University of Novi Sad for twenty years, currently as Associate Professor. His current research interest is in the field of: Internet of Things (especially LPWAN), Security in Industrial IoT, Localization, and Wireless sensor, actuator and robot networks. He published 2 book chapters, 10 journal papers and more than 30 conference papers. Dr Mezei acted as a reviewer for a more than 20 peer-reviewed journals, more than 40 conferences and he was a TPC member for more than 35 conferences. He is co-author on several technical solutions. Currently, he is involved as a senior researcher in the following H2020 projects: 1.
