About the seminar:
The widely accepted requirements for 5G can only be met by a combination of evolutionary and revolutionary changes in cellular technology and business models. In this talk we’ll explore 5G requirements and motivations. We’ll also look at some of the more disruptive PHY layer technologies including Massive MIMO and mmWave radio access.

Bob Cutler is the Principal Solution’s Architect in Keysight’s Strategic Business Development Group with his current focus being 5G technologies. He holds a BSEE (1984) and an MSEE (1990) from the University of Washington and is a Senior Member of the IEEE. He has been with Keysight/Agilent/HP since 1985.
In 1992 Bob was a lead engineer in the development of the first Vector Signal Analyzer where he was responsible for vector calibration, digital signal processing and modulation analysis algorithms. Bob has since been responsible for developing modulators, demodulators and modulation analysis and other algorithms for a number of emerging radio technologies use in cellular, public safety, broadcast and WiFi, including the newest 60 GHz format, 802.11ad. In 2003 Bob lead a team in the development of spatially distributed RF Sensor network technologies incorporating TDOA-based geolocation technology.
As a measurement and technology expert, Bob has also actively contributed to the creation of RF test procedures incorporated into various IEEE and ETSI standards. He has served Agilent’s representative to the SDR Forum where he chaired a test and measurement working group for software-defined and cognitive radio. More recently Bob served as interim chair of the Interoperability Working Group for the Wireless Gigabit Alliance. Bob holds a number of patents relating to signal detection, system synchronization and vector calibration.
Roger Nichols is the 5G Program Manager for Keysight Technologies. His 30 years of experience in the wireless industry spans various roles in Manufacturing and R&D and crosses the evolution from analog cellular radio through LTE and beyond. This started with 1G and he has been part of every generation since. Prior to his current role, he spent the previous nine years as the Marketing Director for Agilent’s Mobile Broadband Operation responsible for delivering the Wireless Testsets and systems which are used in all major design and certification labs as well as manufacturing facilities worldwide.
