Does 5G have a bright future? Light based communications for wireless Solutions

IEEE CTN Issue: November 2016

This month the good people of PureLiFi are giving us an update on the state of light based wireless communications and exactly where they are in developing a commercial product. How big will LiFi be in ultra dense networking? Read on, and don't forget to comment.

Night of the Living Dead...Spectrum use cases

IEEE CTN Issue: October 2016

5G shmiveG. This month Shahid and Jonathan from the Instituto de Telecomunicações in Portugal are here to tell us a scary story of a world where spectrum is in short supply and applications you thought were dead and buried have come back to demand their share of the grisly spectrum pie. Who thought the ITU could be this interesting? Viewer discretion advised and comments, as always, welcome.

Wireless at the Fringe – Of Human Intranets, Brain-Machine Interfaces and Enhanced Humans

IEEE CTN Issue: September 2016

After their article a couple of months ago, I asked the good folks at BWRC to expand on the work they are doing in implantable electronics, as well as its potential health implications. BWRC’s approach focuses not only on functionality but on battery-free, extreme miniaturization and wireless access for very specific quantification of the host health. They also point us toward a future where such devices might link up and literally talk about you behind (as well as under and inside) your back. Hope you enjoy, and comments as always are welcome.
