IEEE Malaysia - DLP Broadband Wireless

Dear Valued IEEE Members,

IEEE COMSOC Distinguished Lecture Program

'Broadband Wireless IP'


Professor Abbas Jamalipour
Fellow IEEE, Fellow IEAust
Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Wireless Communications
Distinguished Lecturer, IEEE Communications Society

Date: 17th February 2009 (Tuesday)

Time: 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm

Venue: Bilik Taklimat, 2nd Floor, Tower Block, Engineering
Complex, Faculty of Engineering, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM),

Organized by

IEEE Communications Society and Vehicular Technology Joint
Chapter (Malaysia Section)



With technological advancement and social changes, a proliferation of
access networks (e.g. 2G, 3G, WLAN, HIPERLAN, WiMAX) with diverse data
rates and quality-of-service (QoS) specifications have emerged. Cellular
operators have invested heavily into their networks and are working hard
to maintain ( even expand) their market share by improving the services
(such as increasing throughput and data rate). It is difficult to predict
which of these technologies will ultimately come on the top, reinforcing
the likelihood of their coexistence in the future. Broadband Wireless IP
everywhere will find its way through the realization of Next Generation
Mobile Network (NGMN) which is expected to offer ubiquitous roaming
across these networks by inter-connecting these and other emerging
technologies through a common platform, thereby providing an end- to-end
IP connectivity between peer end terminals. Inter- connectivity through a
common platform will enable individual networks to evolve independently
(through the adoption/ modification of new/current system) while at the
same time allow newer technologies to seamlessly integrate with the NGMN
framework. In terms of the radio network, whether a common radio
interface will be adopted across the entire NGMN to support high data
rates or multiple interfaces (e.g. FDMA, TDMA, Narrowband CDMA, Wideband
CDMA, or OFDMA) in their current form will continue to coexist is an open
issue. This is influenced as much by the operator's willingness to invest
into the new interface as by the need to safeguard their present
investment. Deploying a common multi-access radio system across NGMN
would involve considerable capital investment which will ultimately lead
to a concerted effort by the operators to resist changes in the existing
radio interfaces. So far no compelling winner has emerged to dictate the
transition since it is difficult to reach a consensus regarding the
priority of one radio system over another. In this talk, the
abovementioned topics will be presented toward a more concise conclusion
on the mobile network of the future, which will be the main platform for
a true mobile broadband IP access.

several other journals. He is a voting member of the IEEE GITC and IEEE
Communications Society Education Board and has been a Vice Chair of IEEE
WCNC '03–'06, Chair of IEEE GLOBECOM '05 (Wireless Communications), and a
symposium Co-Chair of IEEE ICC '05–'08 and IEEE GLOBECOM '06–'07, and the
General Co-Chair of IEEE RWS2009. He is the recipient of several
international awards including the Best Tutorial Paper Award and
Distinguished Contribution to Satellite Communications Award, both from
the IEEE Communications Society in 2006.
