On Oct. 16, 2019, Dr. Constantinos B. Papadias gave a Keynote speech at the 5th International IEEE Smart Cities Conference (ISC2 2019, https://ieee-isc2.org/), entitled “Modelling mmWave Channels for Fixed Wireless Access in Urban Environments.”

The presentation was based on recent channel measurements that AIT’s B-WiSE team performed in the context of its participation in the channel modelling group for mmWave networks of the Telecom Infra Project (https://telecominfraproject.com/).
The measurements were performed using TIP equipment at both AIT’s premises in Maroussi, Greece, as well as at Cosmote’s premises in Peania, Greece, representing a corporate urban and a suburban environment, respectively.
The keynote also included a brief overview of the ITN project PAINLESS (http://painless-itn.com/), which has several use cases related to the smart city concept.
The presented work included contributions of B-WiSE team members Ioannis Chondroulis, Muhammad Haroon Tariq, Nithin Babu, as well as B-WiSE intern Panagiotis Skartsilas.
