Hirley Alves concluded a dual doctoral degree program between University of Oulu and Federal University of Technology - Paraná, Brazil. Hirley received the D.Sc. degree from University of Oulu in April 2015. Hirley received B.Sc., M.Sc. and D.Sc degrees from Federal University of Technology - Paraná (UTFPR), Brazil, in 2010, 2011 and 2015, respectively, all in Electrical/Telecommunications Engineering. Since 09.2017, Hirley is Adjunct Professor at the Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC), University of Oulu, Finland.
Machine-type wireless communication (MTC) , in especial massive MTC and Ultra-reliable, low latency communication (URLLC), imposes the most challenging requirements in terms of latency and reliability that are not attended by current technologies. Hence imposing a new technological paradigm on the design of wireless networks. MTC covers heterogeneous and stringent requirements ranging from massive connectivity up to ultra-reliability and low latency (as 99.999% within 1ms). Therefore MTC is one of the key enablers of the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution, which is predicted to change not only the way we live, but generate new business with huge potential economic impact, and revolutionize the complete value chain of several industries.
To meet this vision our group is composed of brilliant researchers that seek elegant mathematical and algorithmic solutions for MTC, mMTC and URLLC, within its diverse and heterogeneous requirements and applications.
