ABOUT THE MEETING:  

Today’s wireless users expect high-performance mobile broadband to be widely available, but even 3G systems can be frustratingly slow during peak usage times. Most mobile wireless carriers have turned to Long Term Evolution (LTE) as the answer to these demands. With its clever use of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), LTE offers flexible occupied bandwidth, very high data rates, low latency, and the ability to operate in both paired and unpaired frequency sets. Dr. Bob Morrow will present a technical comparison of 3G and 4G wireless so you can see for yourselves what the LTE “hype” is all about.

  ABOUT THE PRESENTER:  

Bob Morrow received a Bachelor of Science degree from the United States Air Force Academy, a Master of Science degree from Stanford University, and a Ph.D. from Purdue University, all in electrical engineering. Bob taught undergraduate engineering and was the Director of Research at the U. S. Air Force Academy, and he was Deputy Head of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the Air Force Institute of Technology, where he taught graduate engineering courses. He also earned instructor pilot ratings in three military aircraft before retiring from the Air Force. Dr. Morrow has published over two-dozen technical articles, holds a United States patent, and is an Advanced Class Amateur Radio operator. Bob authored the books Bluetooth Operation and Use and Wireless Network Coexistence for McGraw-Hill, and is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He presently consults and teaches short courses in wireless networks
