High-Speed Railway (HSR) has brought much convenience for peoples’ travelling. To ensure safe and reliable operation of HSR, maintaining a reliable bidirectional communication link between the train and the ground, dedicated mobile communication systems such as GSM for railway (GSM-R) and LTE for railway (LTE-R) play key roles. Moreover, rapid growth of future railway services and applications such as real-time high-definition (HD) video surveillance has aroused 1 GBps data transmission rate with 100 MHz bandwidth at least. Thus, higher frequency band such as mm-wave technique, the fifth generation (5G) technique and corresponding mobile communication network should be designed accordingly to provide high capacity and high data transmission rate for newly developed railway services and applications. This presentation talks about some key features and technical challenges on dependable wireless communications for high-speed railways.

Internet of Things (IoT) provides connectivity to the devices participating in the edge technologies. In order to provide seamless connectivity for the future services of IoT, an infrastructure is required that will provide storage, decision making, and intelligence. Cloud computing can be the technology to fill this wide. However, for this, cloud computing has to address the dynamic, growingdemands for the real-time, reliable data processing of IoT. In this talk, I will discuss the orchestration of IoT services over cloud. I will also discuss the future IoT services, their requirements and challenges they set for the cloud computing to enable future IoT.

Green Computing and Wireless Communications Engineering Sustainability remains an essential aspect of providing improved transmission portfolio for delivering effective communication services that will enable the achievement of energy saving and environmental sustainable applications in both the business and industrial sectors. The issue of virtual usability and awareness management strategy may result in achieving excellence in energy efficiency and usage, environmental considerations and energy re-use strategic models. The return on investment (ROI) as strategic outcome of the model may restore organisations with huge energy wastage without thinking of cost, environmental impact and carbon emissions.
