Kolloq. Prof. Martin Reisslein, topic: Recent Advances in Access and Sensor Networking

In this presentation, I will give an overview of recent advances in access and sensor networking in my group at ASU. In the area of access networks involving an optical fiber component, we have recently completed extensive studies on passive optical networks (PONs) as well as fiber-wireless (FiWi) access networks. Presently, we are examining the combination of high-speed PON access networks with slower-speed digital subscriber line (DSL) networks.

In the area of purely wireless access networks, we have analyzed the connection establishment in LTE-A networks. We found that for access systems with a long timeout and high barring probability, the numbers of user equipment (UE) nodes participating in random access contention in successive slots tend to Poisson process, irrespective of the arrival process (e.g., even for Markov Modulated Poisson Process arrivals).

In the area of sensor networks, we are working on developing a complete video sensor network solution ranging from the sensor node platform to the application layer streaming protocol. I will briefly outline a novel Wireless Sensor Node Platform (WSNP) approach to Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH).


Martin Reisslein is a Professor in the School of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University, Tempe. He received the Dipl.-Ing. (FH) degree from the Fachhochschule Dieburg, Germany, in 1994, and the M.S.E. degree from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, in 1996. Both in electrical engineering. He received his Ph.D. in systems engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1998. During the academic year 1994-1995 he visited the University of Pennsylvania as a Fulbright scholar. From July 1998 through October 2000 he was a scientist with the German National Research Center for Information Technology (GMD Fraunhofer FOKUS), Berlin and lecturer at the Technical University Berlin. From October 2000 through 2005 he was an Assistant Professor and from 2005 through 2011 he was an Associate Professor at ASU.

Martin Reisslein has published over 120 journal articles and over 60 conference papers in the areas of multimedia networking over wired and wireless network, video traffic characterization, optical networking, and engineering education. His Google Scholar h-index is 39, and his ISI Web of Science h-index is 21. He received the NSF Career Award in 2002. He served as Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials from January 2003 through February 2007, and serves currently as Associate EiC for this journal. He served as Associate Editor for the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking (2009-2013), and currently serves as Associate Editor for Computer Networks (Elsevier), Optical Switching and Networking (Elsevier), the Journal of Communications and Networks, and the IEEE Transactions on Education. He has served on the Technical Program Committees of IEEE Infocom, IEEE Globecom, and IEEE ICC. He is a Fellow of the IEEE (Class of 2014) and a Senior Member of the ACM.
