RCR Wireless News, a leading source of wireless, telecom and mobile technology news and actionable intelligence since 1982, named WNCG Prof. Jeff Andrews to their top 10 list of Industrial Internet-of-Things (IoT) 5G Innovators.
IEEE GLOBECOM is one of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), together with IEEE ICC. Each year the conference attracts about 3,000 submitted scientific papers and dozens of proposals for industry events. A technical program committee of more than 1,500 experts provides more than 10,000 reviews, and from this a small fraction of the submitted papers are accepted for publication and presentation at the conference.
Texas Wireless Summit (TWS) 2015 explored next generation wireless networks in a day-long event focused on The View to 5G: From Applications to the Air Interface. The 13th annual TWS provided a forum on emerging technology and business models for industry leaders and academics. Hosted by WNCG, TWS offered direct access to cutting-edge research and innovations from industry leaders, investors, academics and startups.
This April, WNCG Prof. Jeffrey Andrews and other experts met with FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to discuss spectrum innovation. The discussion between Wheeler and Andrews explored how current research can inform FCC and U.S. spectrum policies and research investments for a still-undefined 5G cellular standard.
A vast majority of the increased mobile data throughput has been enabled by ever-increasing densification, i.e. adding more base stations and access points that have a wired backhaul connection. This trend is set to continue for the next decade at least, primarily through the provisioning of small cells such as pico and femtocells. What if we reached a point where adding more infrastructure did not allow increased wireless network throughput? This would be comparable to the impending end of "Moore's Law"; a cataclysmic event having far-reaching consequences.
