Arogyaswami Paulraj inducted into Wireless Hall of Fame
Induction into the Wireless Hall of Fame is one of the industry’s highest honors, acknowledging the leadership, innovation, and achievement of each honoree.
Congratulations to Emeritus Professor Arogyaswami Paulraj. He has been inducted into the Wireless Hall of Fame by the Wireless History Foundation.
His citation reads, "Dr. Paulraj is the inventor of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless technology, which has increased the data capacity of wireless systems exponentially. MIMO technology is now at the core of all WiFi, and 4G /5G Mobile networks. Since his early work on the MIMO concept at Stanford University in 1992, Dr. Paulraj has continued to refine, commercialize and advance MIMO technology. He faced many challenges, not uncommon for new technologies, for at least a decade. The massive footprint of MIMO today (billions of user devices) has required the contributions of thousands of researchers and engineers, many of them eminent. However, Dr. Paulraj clearly stands out as a key enabler of MIMO wireless, who persisted in the face of skepticism and obstacles to nurture a revolutionary technology from inception to global adoption.”
The Wireless Hall of Fame Program provides public recognition of outstanding individuals across all segments of the wireless industry. Induction into the Wireless Hall of Fame is one of the industry’s highest honors, acknowledging the leadership, innovation, and achievement of each honoree.
Please join us in congratulating Professor Paulraj on another richly deserved honor!
