NAME OF PRESENTERS, THEIR AFFLIATIONS AND CONTACT INFO:
User experience with broadband access to the Internet and corporate intranets via high-speed wireline technologies and via 802.11 LANs have raised the userís expectations of what should be achievable in a fully mobile environment. Applications that flourish in the high speed environment, e.g. peer-to-peer networking, gaming, m-commerce, etc., can then become ubiquitous. The tutorial session consists of presentations focusing on the requirements needed to support transparent access to Internet and intranet services and the technological feasibility of realizing these requirements with OFDM technology.
The primary objective of the tutorial is to drive toward the formation of an Executive Committee Study Group to develop a project proposal addressing the development of a standard for a Wireless Broadband IP Data Air Interface in the 450 Mhz to 3 Ghz Licensed Spectrum and Supporting Vehicular Mobility.
