Speakers: Steve Yuroff
Level: Intermediate, Lecture
Excerpt: Get your geek on with a technical exploration of the core technologies that enable our WiFi networks, including QAM levels, MIMO and CSMA/CA. If that sounds like alphabet soup, Don’t Panic: you’ll leave knowing what they mean, and how they team up to allow WiFi to do its magic.
Description: When you pull out the virtual magnifying glass and dig down into it, it’s downright incredible that WiFi works at all. Take a dive into the amazing engineering that our WiFi devices and networks are built upon, and learn
-how WiFi converts data into radio transmissions and back again
-the clever timing system that allows airtime to be shared across all the devices
-all about spatial streams, and how they transform a problem into an advantage
-how the latest standards can allow simultaneous transmissions to multiple stations, without making a mess of everything
and many other tech details that will leave you in awe of the giant shoulders that our WiFi stands upon.
