Moray Rumney, the lead technologist specialising in LTE at Agilent Technologies Inc., has won the Informa LTE North America 2010 award for individual contribution to LTE development.
The nine awards categories cover LTE standards, product design and network deployment, plus the individual contribution award. LTE is the long-term evolution of 3G UMTS and is the preferred choice of operators moving towards 4G wireless.
“As cellular wireless technology continues to grow in complexity, the most rewarding aspect of my job is to explain this new technology in accessible ways for those who need to implement it or understand its impact and significance on wireless industry evolution,” said Rumney.
Rumney has worked in the wireless cellular industry for 20 years. His work is centered around radio standardisation at 3GPP RAN WG4 and more recently at the LTE/SAE Trial Initiative where he helped develop LTE field trial tests.
His current standards work includes development of antenna testing methods for LTE MIMO user equipment, and he is working with other Agilent LTE experts on the second edition of Agilent’s LTE book, which will include 4G LTE-Advanced.
A technical article by Rumney has recently been added to the Test & Measurement Designline see: New challenges for LTE and MIMO receiver test.
