Webinar: Paulraj, Samueli & Goldsmith on the Remarkable Wireless Future

Remarkable Wireless Future: More Megabits Soon, Gigabits to Come”, will be the second “Marconi Expertise” webinar. The webinar takes place March 6, 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. New York, 6 p.m. London. No charge to register

MIMO inventor A.J. Paulraj, Stanford Professor and entrepreneur Andrea Goldsmith & Broadcom co-founder Henry Samueli will explain technology that will bring extraordinary gains in wireless speeds. No one is better able to describe the future of mobile than Stanford Professor AJ Paulraj. He invented MIMO in 1993 (http://bit.ly/Jh0629), a technology included in the iPhone5 and most current routers and mobile phones. He’s been working on gigabit wireless for more than a decade and is a leader in research for 5G wireless.

Henry Samueli, whose work led to the explosive growth of the consumer broadband industry, predicts a rapid evolution of wireless based on MIMO technology. “Smartphones will evolve to desktop computer performance levels within only a few years and by 2015 mobile Internet usage will overtake desktops with smartphones use growing four times faster than overall phone growth,” Samueli says. Samueli, the 2012 Marconi Prize winner, is co-founder and CTO of Broadcom, a world leading wireless chipmaker.

Goldsmith is working on massive MIMO systems, cognitive radio and green wireless system design. “The evolution of MIMO from broadband (10 Mb/s) to Gb/s rates should only be a matter of time as hardware for multichannel radio-frequency chains and digital signal processors become more affordable,” she says. Goldsmith founded Accelera, a company that creates wireless network virtualization technology, and Quantenna Communications, Inc. a leading developer of 802.11ac and 802.11n semiconductor solutions targeted at devices such as wireless set-top boxes, residential gateways video bridges, and other devices that deliver highly reliable broadband multimedia video and data services over Wi-Fi anywhere in the home.
