Professor in Computer Engineering and Communication Networks



Salman A. AlQahtani current research interests are in the area of 5G networks, broadband wireless communications, radio resource management for 4G and beyond networks (call admission control, packet scheduling and radio resource sharing techniques), cognitive and cooperative wireless networking, small cell and heterogeneous networks, self-organizing networks, smart grid, intelligent IoT solutions for smart cities, dynamic spectrum access, co-existence issues on heterogeneous networks in 5G, industry 4.0 issues, Internet of Everything and mobile cloud computing. In addition, his interests also include performance evaluation and analysis of high speed packet switched networks, system model and simulations and integration of heterogeneous wireless networks. Mainly his focus is on the design and optimization of 5G MAC layers, closed-form mathematical performance analysis, energy-efficiency, and resource allocation and sharing strategies. He has authored two scientific books and authored/co-authored around 76 journal and conference papers in the topic of his research interests since 2004. He serves as a reviewer for several national and international journals
