About the Event

Mobile data traffic has been roughly doubling every year due to ever increasing consumption. While that continues, there is also a quickly evolving need to support high-speed mobile data transmission to machines such as self-driving cars. The combined effect results in the need to increase the capacity of the network by several orders of magnitude in the near future. In this talk, I will discuss several of the innovations underway to enable an ultrahigh capacity wireless network. Meeting such challenges require the commercialization of indoor wireless systems, outdoor site densification and new advances in mobile radio architecture, all of which I have been directly involved. I will also discuss the implication of these technologies over the next decade as we evolve towards 5G networks.
