Location: Fisher Conference Center, Arrillaga Alumni Center

"Keynote Talk"


I will be focusing on an overview of Clearwire's network design concepts, progress of our nationwide build to date as well as some performance metrics we are seeing today.


As Clearwire's senior vice president - chief technology officer, John Saw, Ph.D., is the chief architect of the company's advanced wireless network infrastructure and technology, designed to deliver true wireless broadband performance in a mobile environment. Saw brings nearly 20 years of experience developing wireless networks and architectures to Clearwire, including pioneering work in the development and rollout of TDMA, GSM, CDMA and fixed wireless cellular infrastructure and microwave products. In addition, he was instrumental in developing AT&T Wireless' digital wireless broadband product, one of the earliest OFDM-based wireless systems deployed that foreshadowed the subsequent development of the WiMAX 802.16 standards. Prior to assuming his current role, Saw served as Clearwire's vice president of engineering since joining the company as its second employee. Before Clearwire, Saw held key engineering and technology executive positions with Netro Corp (now SR Telecom), AT&T Wireless (now AT&T Inc.), and Nortel. Saw also holds five U.S. patents in wireless technologies.
