Title: WiMAX Update: IEEE 802.16m and WiMAX future

Speaker: Hassan Yaghoobi, Intel Corporation


The purpose of this talk is to provide an update on WiMAX technology. The presentation provides a brief update on productization from WiMAX Forum, standardization update on IEEE 802.16m/Rev2 and IMT-Advance. On WiMAX Forum side, an update on Release 1.5 and FDD enablement will be provided. On the standardization side, an update on IEEE 802.16m status is provided through coverage of System Requirement, System Description, Evaluation Methodology and the Standard Amendment projects. As IEEE 802.16m is a candidate for IMT-Advance, a brief section of presentation is dedicated to provide an update on IMT-Advance and status of submission of 802.16m and WiMAX Forum Release 2.0 to ITU.


Hassan Yaghoobi received a B.S. degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 1989 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Maryland, in 1993 and 2000, respectively, all in Electrical Engineering. His academic research interests include Nonlinear Control Theory, Communications Theory, and Digital Signal Processing. Hassan's industrial experience includes communications systems engineering, silicon design/specification, and standards development in the area of broadband communications. Since 2000, he has been working at Intel Corporation. As a senior systems architect for Intel's Broadband Product Group, he worked on silicon design specifications, algorithm design, system design verification, and validation of various cable modem products. He represented Intel at the DOCSIS standard committees at Cablelabs. Hassan is currently working as a Principal Wireless Systems Architect for Intel's Mobile Wireless Standard and Advance Technology. He is a member of the ETSI BRAN and IEEE 802.16 and 802.20 working groups and a senior member of IEEE Standard Association. He also serves as WiMAX Forum Technical Working Group vice-chair, an industry group focused on interoperability of systems that conform to the IEEE 802.16 standard. Prior to Intel, he worked on design and modeling of wireless terrestrial and satellite receivers for Stanford Telecom and on RF network design of mobile wireless systems for LCC International.
