Wireless Innovation Forum Members Update Popular Top 10 Most Wanted Wireless Innovations List
Washington, DC, February 08, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The Wireless Innovation Forum
(SDR Forum version 2.0), a non-profit organization dedicated to driving the future of radio communications and systems worldwide, announced today a revision of its most downloaded document: “Top 10 Most Wanted Wireless Innovations” list. This list represents the collective view of the Forum’s member organizations on innovations, either technical, business or regulatory, that if realized would address key shortcomings in existing wireless communications systems.
To create this innovation roadmap, the Forum’s Roadmap Committee sought participation from the different wireless industry stakeholders, including users, radio manufacturers, software and hardware component providers, network operators, and spectrum regulators to identify perceived or real shortcomings in the wireless domain.
The initial list was voted on and approved by the Forum membership October 2011 and became one of the Forum’s most downloaded documents from the Forum’s public document library over the next year. “The Forum’s Top 10 list lays the foundation for research supporting next generation of wireless systems,” said Forum CEO, Lee Pucker. “As an organization devoted to driving advancement in this field, we couldn’t be more pleased that the list is being utilized in the community world-wide to define innovation objectives and justify expenditures in R&D.”
The Forum’s Roadmap committee recently evolved the list, as per the Forum’s 2012 Operations Plan. Innovations were updated to meet the evolving needs of the advanced wireless community. The revised list follows:
· Innovation #1: Techniques for Efficient Software Porting Between Heterogeneous Platforms and Generic Development Tools for Heterogeneous Processors
· Innovation #2: Certification Process for Third Party Waveform Software
· Innovation #3: Receiver Performance Specifications
· Innovation #4: Low Cost Wide Spectral Range RF Front-End (Multi-octave Contiguous) (Tx,Rx)
· Innovation #5: Techniques to Minimize Power Amplifier Spectral Regrowth in Non-contiguous Spectral Environment
· Innovation #6: Increase Communications Time on Battery Charge by an Order of Magnitude
· Innovation #7: Means of Coverage Extension – Maintaining Communications in Emergencies and After Disasters
· Innovation #8: Interference Mitigation Techniques
· Innovation #9: Standardized Computer Interpretable Policy Language for Cognitive Radio
· Innovation #10: Flexible Regulatory Framework for Temporary, Cooperative and Opportunistic Access
Dr. John Glossner, CTO of the Wireless Innovation Forum and CEO of Optimum Semiconductor Technologies said, "The Top 10 Innovation list represents the collective input of member companies. Driven by company needs, the Forum actively sponsors projects and activities to make progress towards or solve the most pressing problems in wireless communications. This list which is updated and discussed at every Forum meeting represents the most important activities that require solutions for enabling efficient future wireless communications."
