Without Paulraj and ...

Without Paulraj and his team pioneering MIMO and dramatically improving the performance of wireless networks, the fast Internet connections to which millions of people around the world have grown accustomed may never have materialised.

With the increasing internet users through smartphones and wireless devices, the demand for network providers to deliver faster, more reliable connections is on a rise. However, the problem with the wireless spectrum is that it is limited. Bandwidth must be shared between those surfing the web, watching TV broadcasts, and listening to podcasts and radio. Bandwidth is precious - and it's expensive too. So when Arogyaswami Paulraj (72), an electrical engineer from India who moved to the United States in 1991 to teach at Stanford University, came up with a way to cram more digital data into the radio waves that make up the wireless spectrum, it was a boon for both the network providers and their customers. Dr Paulraj was supported by two of his post-doctoral students - David Gesbert and Robert Heath.

For this achievement, the European Patent Office (EPO) has named Arogyaswami Paulraj and his team as one of three finalists for the European Inventor Award 2016 in the category "Non-European countries". The EPO will announce the winners of the 11th edition of its annual innovation prize at a ceremony in Lisbon on 9 June.
"In today's interconnected world, wireless connections have become a fundamental part of everyday life for billions of people across the world," said EPO President Benoît Battistelli announcing the European Inventor Award 2016 finalists. "The technology developed by Arogyaswami Paulraj and his team has contributed significantly to faster wireless data transmission, one of the cornerstones of the digital era.

By adding up an additional receiving antenna and rethinking multipath propagation in order to use the distortions it produces to help distinguish between signal waves, Paulraj and his team were not only able to improve the bit rate, or connection speed - they also enlarged signal coverage areas. What's more: MIMO was able to achieve a higher rate of data transmission within the same channel bandwidth (frequency spectrum), meaning there was no need for extra power or coveted bandwidth.
"Once you have a two-by-two system [four antennae] you get twice the throughput," explains Paulraj. "A four-by-four system creates four times the throughput. In cellular communications or in Wi-Fi, where spectrum is very, very limited, if you have multiple antennae you can increase the speed of the link."
Ahead of his time
Serving the Indian Navy for 30 years and earning the rank of Commodore, Paulraj developed the idea for MIMO in 1992 while at Stanford University, where he is now a professor emeritus of electrical engineering. The idea behind MIMO sprouted when Paulraj set out to find a method for the US Airforce reconnaissance plane to listen in on multiple signals without interference - the solution, a multi-antenna array. After modifying this concept for wireless communications, he was awarded his first MIMO-related patent in 1994, but it would take nearly a decade for the first commercial applications of the technology to emerge. This delay was largely attributable to the fact that US wireless networks were still mostly analogue. Paulraj's technology required digital networks to function, and a wholesale infrastructure upgrade was not carried out until the early 2000s.

Silicon Valley, CA (January 14, 2013) - Proxim Wireless Corporation (OTC Markets: PRXM), a leading provider of complete outdoor wireless backhaul systems utilizing WORP® technology, today announced that Dr. Arogyaswami Paulraj has been appointed to its Board of Directors.
Dr. Paulraj is an Emeritus Professor at Stanford University and a Senior Adviser to Broadcom Corp.
Dr. Paulraj is a pioneer of MIMO (Multiple-Input/Multiple-Output) wireless communications, a technology breakthrough that enables dramatically improved wireless performance. MIMO is now incorporated into new wireless standards including WiFi, WiMAX and 4G.
In addition to his academic credentials, Dr. Paulraj founded two companies: Iospan Wireless which laid the foundation for 4G wireless technology prior to being acquired by Intel Corp. in 2003, and Beceem Communications which was a leader in 4G wireless semiconductors prior to being acquired by Broadcom Corp. in 2010.
Dr. Paulraj received the IEEE's highest recognition for telecommunications - the Alexander Graham Bell Medal - and is a member of several academies including the US National Academy of Engineering and the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences. He has also received the Padma Bhushan, one of India's highest national awards.
"We are pleased to have Dr. Paulraj join our Board of Directors," said Lee Gopadze, President and Chief Executive Officer of Proxim Wireless.
...
We expect that Dr. Paulraj's combination of deep technical capabilities with a nuanced understanding of technology businesses will provide excellent guidance for us as we similarly look to use our proprietary and copyrighted WORP software to deliver truly differentiated products to our customers.
