Cambridge, UK. 27 January 2010. The ever-increasing complexity of wireless devices and the unpredictability of exactly how and where they will be used is making it increasingly challenging to ensure they will work as intended in the real world. The Digital Communications Knowledge Transfer Network (DCKTN) and Cambridge Wireless have joined together to bring this full day event to their members. (Anyone interested in attending who is not already a member of either organisation can join DCKTN at no charge).
The event will take place on 25th February 2010, from 11:00 to 17:00 at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, Middx.
Hosted at one of the world's leading centres for test and measurement expertise, the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), delegates will be able to gain insights into how NPL supports the Wireless Community via a tour of their state of the art facilities, a privilege not normally available to members of the public. The line up of specialist speakers will discuss examples of where technology convergence is causing headaches, and how some of these issues are being addressed. GSM, WCDMA (HSPA), LTE, DVB-H, FM, Bluetooth, UWB, GPS and WiFi all have their individual challenges which tend to multiply exponentially as different standards and radios are required to co-exist in modern mobile devices. Speakers for the day include Prof. Simon Kingsley, Chief Scientist from Antenova; Dr.Ir. Leo Poll, the Business Development Manager from Philips MiPlaza; and Dr David Humphreys, Principal Research Scientist at NPL.
'The industry is rethinking how testing is carried out, constantly seeking solutions to make it faster, cheaper, and more efficient. This Digital Communications KTN and Cambridge Wireless Testing SIG event draws knowledge from acclaimed specialists in the industry to address these challenges and, as with previous events in this series, I expect lively discussion and additional insights from delegates during the Panel Session,' says Allan Maclean of Amdeo, who is one of the SIG Champions of Cambridge Wireless.
Soraya Jones, CEO of Cambridge Wireless says, 'For this event, there will be an extended lunch for increased networking activity. We are also pleased that delegates will have a unique opportunity to tour the NPL Labs'.
