5NINES CTO and VP of Data Center and Networks, Anton Kapela, will be presenting at an event co-sponsored by the UW-Madison Computer Science Program. “How wireless took me out of computer science and into the real world” will cover a variety of topics including applying your skills to an ever-growing, valuable business sector, wireless data network history, along with a few general topics in wireless data systems. He’ll then move on to describe the extra “stuff” you might encounter in designing and running a truly mobile network, weaving in personal experiences he’s had in operating 5NINES’ 4G network in the Madison, Wisconsin market. Finally, he’ll present some of the latest cutting-edge wireless research that the UW WiNGS lab has been conducting with 5NINES, paying special attention to how they use a single 4G WiMAX & LTE network to co-operate a functional mobility network that supports experimental work alongside normal Internet access users.
This event will be held March 30, 2017, from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm at the UW- Madison Computer Sciences building. This event is open to the public and attendees are encouraged to register in advance. Click the button for more information and to register.
