The Expert Board has been established in order to ensure close linkage to project‐external experts involved in the areas of the respective Wi-5 developments. The Expert Board acts as a sparring partner and reviewing board for Wi-5’s technical results. The experts will review the project results on technical quality before publication, and discuss technical progress and issues with project members on an ad hoc basis. The members of the Expert Board are:
Professor Grenville Armitage is the Director of the Centre for Advanced Internet Architectures (CAIA) at Swinburne University in Melbourne, Australia.
Before Prof. Armitage joined Swinburne University he had various technical and managerial positions at Bell Labs (Lucent Technologies) and Bellcore in the US. He received his PhD from the University of Melbourne in 1994. He has more than 100 scientific publications, and has contributed to 10 IETF RFCs. He has been line manager of eight academic staff members at Swinburne University, with overall responsibility for administration and teaching of BEng (Telecommunications and Network Engineering), BICT( Network Design and Security) and MSc (Network Systems) programs, working with Faculty and corporate marketing for community outreach, and internal strategy development.
Dr. Eldad Perahia is Intel Corporation’s physical layer lead in IEEE 802.11.
He is currently engaged in the new High Efficiency WLANs (802.11ax) activity and regulatory affairs. He was actively involved in the 802.11ac task group since its inception where he was the 802.11ac Coexistence Ad Hoc co-chair. Dr. Perahia was also the 802.11ad (60 GHz) chair, and is currently the 802.11aj vice-chair (mmWave in China). Prior to that, he was the chair of the 802.11 Very High Throughput Study Group that launched 802.11ac and 802.11ad. He was also the 802.11n Coexistence Ad Hoc chair. He is the co-author of “Next Generation Wireless LANs: 802.11n and 802.11ac”, published by Cambridge in 2013. He has twenty five patents, and numerous papers and patent filings in various areas of wireless including WLAN, millimeter wave technology, satellite communications, cellular, and radar. He has a Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles in electrical engineering specialising in digital radio.
Dr. Laurent Cariou is the Principal Orange delegate in IEEE802.11.
He holds a Ph.D from Electronics and Communication Systems Department, National Institute of Applied Sciences, Rennes, France (2006). He is the Principal Orange delegate in IEEE802.11 since 2008, following IEEE802.11ac (Very high throughput at 5GHz), 11ad (Very high throughput at 60GHz), 11af (TV white space) and 11ah (Sub 1GHz) standardisation groups; he was the Chair pro tem of IEEE802.11 High Efficiency WLAN (HEW) study group (March-May 2013). This group led to the creation of 802.11ax, the next Wi-Fi generation. In parallel, Dr. Cariou led the preparation phases of European projects (Smart4G, Sharing) as technical manager. He joined Intel in 2015.
Dr. Ying-Dar Li is a Professor of Computer Science at National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) in Taiwan.
He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1993. He served as the CEO of Telecom Technology Center (TTC) in Taipei during 2010-2011 and a visiting scholar at Cisco Systems in San Jose during 2007–2008. Since 2002, he has been the founder and director of the Network Benchmarking Lab (NBL), which reviews network products with real traffic. NBL recently became an approved test lab of the Open Networking Foundation (ONF). His research interests include design, analysis, implementation, and benchmarking of network protocols and algorithms, quality of services, network security, deep packet inspection, wireless communications, embedded hardware/software co-design, and recently software defined networking.
