Abstract: Caching, an integral in the internet architecture and content distribution networks, is getting renewed interest in the context of wireless networks. Caching at the base station or user devices can save bandwidth and latency on backhaul or access link. Coded Caching is a technique that promises a significant bandwidth reduction in addition to conventional caching gains. The technique is inspired by index (network) coding mechanisms and is based on a special cache design and multicast transmission. This talk will give an overview about the theoretical background of coded caching and discuss applications for this technique. We will review some of the necessary steps to implement coded caching in practical scenarios and discuss challenges that arise in the translation from the theoretical results to real-world systems, in particular inflight entertainment systems. Biography : Michael Heindlmaier received the B.Sc., M.Sc. (hons.) and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from Technical University Munich (TUM) in 2006, 2008 and 2015, respectively. He was a research visitor at MIT in Cambridge, MA in 2009 and at the Nokia Bell Labs in Murray Hill, NJ in 2013. Michael was awarded the 2013 Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship. Since 2015 he is with Cadami, a TUM spin-off focusing on wireless video content distribution. His interests include network optimization and anticipatory methods in communication networks.
