Whither Wireless

Dr. Craig Partridge

We are in the early years of a revolution in wireless communications and the future holds many possibilities. Central to this revolution is the ability to dynamically program (and reprogram) radios, so that innovation in radios will come at the speed of software releases rather than hardware releases. But programmability is only part of the story. There are regulatory issues. There are potential innovations in energy use. In this talk I sketch how how research innovations in wireless are likely to unfold over the next dozen years or so with some (naive) discussions of how the innovations will affect the marketplace.

Dr. Craig Partridge is Chief Scientist for Networking Research at BBN Technologies and Outreach Director for the GENI Project Office. Craig's been doing data communications research since 1983 and his contributions include designing how Internet email is routed and co-developing the world's first 40 Gbps Internet router. He's an IEEE and ACM fellow and a former editor-in-chief of both IEEE Network Magazine and ACM Computer Communication Review. He received his A.B., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard University.
