Abstract
 
-    If "Bursty Traffic : Packet Switching,” then "Heterogeneous Traffic: ?”
=   If AT&T charges you $10 a GB, would you still watch that much video on tablet?
 -   If there’re multiple radios on your phone, who should choose which one to use?
 
In trying to formulate the above questions and to influence industry directions, we observe an emergent, coherent theme.  In this talk, I’ll explore the interactions between economics and engineering in Smart Data  Pricing, the “rise of the clients” in wireless network control, and the  "descend” of cloud infrastructure to end users in the evolution of network architecture.

Biography

Mung Chiang is the Arthur LeGrand Doty Professor of Electrical Engineering  at Princeton University.  His research on networks received the 38th Alan  T. Waterman Award and the IEEE Tomiyasu Award. A TR35 Award recipient, he created the Princeton EDGE Lab to bridge the theory-practice divide by  spanning from proofs to prototypes, resulting in several tech transfers  and two startups.  His MOOC reached over 100,000 students and lead to two  undergraduate textbooks in “just-in-time” style, and he received the ASEE  Terman Award for education innovations.
