ESR: Igor Vitas

 

Igor Vitas received the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from the University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia, in 2011 and the M.Sc. degree in Information and Communication technology from the same university in 2013.

 

From 2013 to 2015, he was with Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, where he was Research Assistant at the Department of Wireless Communications working on EU FP7 eWALL ICT Project. He spent six months in Global Competence Domain organization of Ericsson RAN business unit. Since 2015, she has been working towards the Ph.D. degree with the Department of Optoelectronics at the University of Duisburg-Essen as one of the ESRs in FiWin5G. He is involved in the project “Novel integrated photonic transceiver technology for connecting future broadband wireless 60 GHz WiGig cells to next generation optical access networks (NGOA)”. His research interest includes communication systems physical layer design, and next generation heterogeneous network design.

The PhD project will focus on the development of novel integrated photonic wireless transceiver technology for future broadband 5G wireless (60 GHz WiGig). The key challenge will be to develop photonic solutions that can be seamlessly integrated with next generation optical access (NGOA). fronthaul networks.
