Renowned Engineer from Princeton to Discuss Future of the Wireless Revolution at Colorado State University Dec. 5

A visionary from Princeton and member of the National Academy of Engineering will address the future of wireless communication at Colorado State University.

Vincent Poor, professor of electrical engineering at Princeton, will present "The Wireless Revolution: A Signal Processing Perspective" at 3:10 p.m. Dec. 5 in Hammond Auditorium, Room 120 of the Engineering Building on campus.

"Like its predecessors, today’s wireless revolution is being made possible by major strides in electro-technology," said Poor. "In particular, the current drive to push system capacity, quality of service and mobility well beyond their preconceived limits, is being enabled by striking innovations in signal processing methods and technology."

Poor will discuss how new innovations will impact emerging wireless communications applications, such as third-generation cellular telephony, broadband wireless local loop, high-speed wireless local area networks and information appliances.

Poor’s research focuses on statistical signal processing, with applications primarily in wireless multiple-access systems.
