Title: Next-generation mobile WiMAX (802.16m) Update

Speaker:Dr. Jong-Kae (J.K.) Fwu, Intel Corporation


Abstract: To meet the tremendous demand and growth for mobile Internet and wireless multimedia applications, the IEEE 802.16 Working Group Task Group m (TGm) has been developing a next-generation mobile WiMAX system (4G) since early 2007. The next-generation mobile WiMAX system, as a new amendment of the IEEE 802.16 standard (i.e., IEEE 802.16m), will provide enhancements including higher throughput/mobility, higher user capacity, and lower latency while maintaining full backward compatibility with the existing mobile WiMAX systems (802.16e). This presentation provide a high level tutorial on the prominent technical features and design of IEEE 802.16m and the ongoing technologies in the evolution toward the next-generation WiMAX network. It is focused on the general overall 16m system and particularly PHY related perspectives.  



Dr. Jong-Kae (J.K.) Fwu presently serves as the vice-chair of IEEE 802.16 Task Group m (TGm), a task group focusing on defining next generation WiMAX for mobile internet evolution. He is also an Assistant Technical Editor of the IEEE 802.16m Mobile Broadband Wireless Standard - Advanced Air interface. He has been actively contributing to IEEE 802.16m and the WiMAX Forum in various areas such as PHY Structure, UL Control, multicast/broadcast services and multicarrier operation.

Dr. Jong-Kae (J.K.) Fwu received his B.S. degree from National Tsing-Hua University, Taiwan, in 1992. He received his M.S. (1993) and Ph.D. (1996) in Electrical Engineering from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook. Since 2000, he has been working at Intel Corporation, and has worked on various wireless and wireline communication technologies, including WiMAX, WiFi, and ADSL/SHDSL. He is currently a Senior Wireless Systems Architect of Wireless Standards at the Mobile Wireless Group in Intel. Prior to Intel, he worked on design and modeling of wireless cellular receivers (TDMA IS-136) for Lucent Technologies. He holds several patents on communication system designs.
