Users want seamlessly connected advanced services delivered on-demand wherever they may be, on any platform, over any available network. As user experience becomes richer, the radio transmission and underlying technologies and networks become more complex.

 As one of the key radio transmission technologies, Wi-Fi is rapidly evolving to support the increasing demand on user’s traffic.  In this seminar, we will discuss on recent development, future direction and challenge of Wi-Fi.
