Twisted Waves: A New Dimension in Wireless Communication – Part 1.

In some of my recent postings, I wrote about the limits of the physical layer and what that means for the future of wireless communications systems. Here, I like to mention new research that has promise of increasing the capacity of the physical layer. This new work is based on exploiting a property of electromagnetic waves heavily investigated in the optical range of the electromagnetic spectrum but yet little explored in the radio frequency range.

Evolution of the Air Interface: From 2G Through 4G and Beyond

Below is a link to a recent presentation I made to the local IEEE Ottawa Chapter and the Alliance of IEEE Consultants Network (AICN). I trace the evolution of the air interface of wireless systems from 2G (GSM, CDMA/IS95) through 3G and LTE to LTE-Advanced. Read more of this post
