Wireless Broadband Device and DFS Requirements

Webinar Recording:  May 10, 2017
Presented by Michael Young

According to the 802.16-2004 WiMAX standard, broadband means “having instantaneous bandwidths greater than 1 MHz and supporting data rates greater than 1.5 Mbit/s. This seminar explores the technologies that have proliferated after the introduction of IEEE 802.xx series of specifications. There is a wide range of systems available spanning from 900 MHz through 72 GHz. Discussion will present an overview current Wi-Fi devices, as well as other the license-free bands and equipment that operates in these bands. Dynamic Frequency Selection requirements for operation in the 5 GHz region for radar protection is included in this wireless device class.  We will also explore the TV White Spaces and introduce the new Citizens Broadband Radio Service.

This class provide essential information for the designers incorporating broadband technology into their products and to the test and evaluation team on understanding the parameters associated with this product type.

Michael Young was the Founder, President and Chief Technical Officer of YDI Wireless, a publicly traded company that designed and manufactured broadband wireless data communication equipment and systems. He designed and his company manufactured a complete range of wireless data communication products and accessories. YDI Wireless was a world leader in providing extended range, license-free wireless data equipment that included Wi-Fi as well as turnkey long-distance wireless systems for applications such as wireless Internet, wireless video, wireless LANs, WANs and MANs. He semi-retired in 2004 and started his own engineering company, Young Engineering Services, LLC. He also went back to teaching college as an Adjunct Professor at George Mason University where he created and taught their new Wireless Communication Course. He also was Faculty Supervisor for the ECE Senior Engineering Design Capstone Program. Currently he is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Central Florida and is offering the wireless course he created to the Computer Science Department and still offers engineering design services. As a side note, he is also a pilot and Certified Flight Instructor and enjoys flying his own plane, mostly doing dog rescue flights.
