Information for Presenters
devices are increasingly supporting more radios, raising both issues
and opportunities. The intent of this meeting is to examine
developments and issues in both notebook and handheld platforms. The
scope of the meeting will include both hardware and software:
- RF considerations
- Co-existence protocols and application
issues with multi radios
- Limits to the number of radios and
antennas for small form-factor devices
- Software defined radio
- Battery ramifications of
- Electromagnetic compatibility and
- Antenna design and optimization with
- Global spectrum harmonization and
- Connection manager
interfaces/approaches for multi-radios
- Operating-system support and network
- Optimal application architectures
- Form factor options
- Tradeoffs of between half-size mini
cards and multi-technology full-size mini cards
- Mobile computing policies to control
network selection and application behavior
that meeting presenters, and many of the attendees, are world leading
technologists on the subject material. We allocate sufficient time for
discussion that attendees can ask questions of greatest interest.
Moreover, the meetings allow informal networking during breaks where
attendees can exchange important information.
