Proceedings of the 32nd FRUCT conference are published in IEEE Xplore.

We proudly announce that Juho Pirskanen from Wirepas Ltd. will give the keynote talk of the 32nd FRUCT conference:

Nowadays, the use of wireless technologies is rapidly increasing in different industry segments, resulting in a variety of different private and IoT networks and solutions. This variety is already very broad, much broader than typically discussed in publicity and it is expected that this development is even accelerated in the coming years.

In this presentation, we look at a set of different existing wireless IoT solutions and address future requirements and expectations. After that, we go through the basic principles of DECT-2020 NR technology standardized by ETSI TC DECT and approved by ITU-R as part of IMT-2020, i.e. 5G technology.

JUHO PIRSKANEN has over 20 years of experience in technology development on wireless radio technologies such as 3G, HSPA, LTE and WLAN and the latest on different 5G technologies. He has held several positions in Nokia Networks, Nokia Wireless Modem, Renesas Mobile Corporation and Broadcom Corporation and then again at Nokia Networks for 5G research and standardization. He has participated actively for several years in different standardization forums such as 3GPP, IEEE802.11 and ETSI by doing numerous technical presentations, being a rapporteur of technical specifications and leading different delegations. His research work has resulted in over 40 (co-)authored patent families on different wireless technologies and several publications on radio interface solutions. On 5G, his research focus is on a physical layer and radio protocol layer concepts and solutions.

In late 2017, he joined Wirepas having headquarters in Tampere Finland. Since then, he has been one of the leading contributors to ETSI DECT-2020 NR 5G technology. Wirepas develops a decentralized wireless mesh connectivity suite that can be used to connect, locate, and identify machines, meters, lights, sensors, assets and other IoT devices with unprecedented scale, density, flexibility and reliability. Juho Pirskanen holds a Master of Science in Engineering, from Tampere University of Technology, Finland.
