CW TEC 2015 – integratation & differentiation is key

The inaugural Cambridge Wireless Engineering and Technology Conference (CW TEC) set out to look at whether the wireless industry needs to integrate or differentiate and concluded that it should do both.

Leading industry experts explored the future of the UK’s telecommunications infrastructure, spanning mobile, satellite, TV, IoT and wearable technology, focusing on the impact on licensed and unlicensed spectrum and the design of next generation mobile devices. Watch our short slideshow summary of the event above.

“Integration implies a closer technology and market coupling between traditionally separate sectors in the telecommunications industry while differentiation implies an increasing technology and market distance between each of these industry sectors,” said Geoff Varrall, Chair of CW TEC event and opening speaker. “But it is perfectly possible to integrate and differentiate and there are many areas of mutual interest where it makes sense for the mobile broadband community to work more closely with the satellite and broadcasting industries, along with the low power device community and automotive industry. This extends across the whole range of alarmingly complex and costly spectrum and standards options.”

Sponsored by PwC and hosted at its London riverside offices, CW TEC attracted around 200 delegates to hear speakers from PwC, InterDigital Europe Ltd, Avanti Communications, EE, Keysight Technologies, BSkyB, Radio Design, Anritsu,Qualcomm, IRT, BBC Research and Development, Interlligent UK, u-blox AG,CSR and Samsung Cambridge Solutions Centre.

In addition to the main sponsors, PwC, the inaugural CW TEC event was sponsored by InterDigital Europe Ltd, Microlease and Keysight Technologies, Anritsu and Interlligent.
