Friday, May 2 was the 10th annual Long Island Systems, Applications and Technology Conference (LISAT), a regional IEEE event. InterDigital has been a longtime supporter of the LISAT Conference, and this year, six of our experts joined the conversation with their own presentations. Dr. Robert DiFazio, a Wireless Research Fellow at InterDigital, opened with a short introduction focused on a vision for the future, entitled, “The Living Network – Moving Towards 5G Wireless.”

In addition to Dr. DiFazio’s discussion on 5G, five of InterDigital’s engineers presented on a range of topics focused on the future of wireless technology. Jane Mack, Senior Staff Engineer, InterDigital Labs, discussed field trials for a Spectrum Sharing prototype under development by InterDigital. Benoit Pelletier, Senior Staff Engineer, discussed device-to-device communications, and John Cartmell, Technical Staff Member, InterDigital Labs, spoke about a new technique enabling small cells to meet law enforcement requirements. Xiaofei Wang outlined next-generation Wi-Fi concepts and Patrick Cabrol described an antenna design for a mmWave mesh testbed. Both are Senior Staff Engineers at InterDigital.
