Abstract: In this talk we discuss the evolution to high-speed data mobile wireless systems, with data rates in excess of 10 Mbps. We describe the extension of wireless local area networks using 802.11b and 802.11a, and cellular systems (WCDMA), to provide high-speed ubiquitous access. Smart antennas are then described and shown as a key technology to provide the needed enhancements of range extension, interference suppression, and capacity increase.
Biography: Dr. Jack H. Winters recently retired from AT&T Labs - Research where he was Division Manager of the Wireless Systems Research Department. Currently, he is consulting for several wireless and optical communication companies. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Ohio State University and was then with AT&T in the research area for more than 20 years. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer for both the IEEE Communications and the Vehicular Technology Societies, Area Editor for Transmission Systems for the IEEE Transactions on Communications, and New Jersey Inventor of the Year for 2001. His research interests include signal processing techniques, such as smart antennas, for increasing the capacity and performance of wireless local area networks and cellular systems.
