Physical Layer Engineering for Indoor Wireless Systems in the Twenty-First Century

Prof. Michael Neve

University of Auckland, New Zealand


Deploying wireless systems so that they offer the best performance for all stakeholders (e.g. users, service providers and shareholders) is identified as a critical issue in advancing the wireless industry into the second decade of the twenty-first century. An historical perspective of the key issues is initially presented, from which a set of societal expectations of
future wireless performance are derived. The engineering challenge is to meet these expectations, and this has motivated a programme of research being undertaken at the University of Auckland. Various aspects of the research being undertaken at Auckland will be presented, including the use of the computational electromagnetics to model radiowave propagation in indoor environments.
