- 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.
