DR Lajos Hanzo, a professor in the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Engineering at the University of Southampton, the UK, recently gave the fourth talk in Texas A&M University at Qatar's (Tamuq) Distinguished Lecture Series in Education City.

In his talk, 'Bridging the Social and Wireless Networking Divide', Hanzo talked about the dissemination of information via cellular networks, improving connectivity and revamping the design in which the scheduling of resources is allocated. Why are these of upmost importance to the consumer? He observed, as many others have, that wireless networking is getting in the way of old-school social networking. This is the reality, he said, and it's up to researchers and innovators to share ideas that enable a person to seamlessly find a dial tone inside a packed soccer stadium or Heathrow International Airport, for example.

Hanzo said,"We'll soon be reaching the limits of how many transistors can be packed into dense circuits and we're running short on frequencies due to current video and data tsunamis. And how does one even make a profit in an industry where a 250-rupee phone is as 'connected' as an iPhone?"

The professor concluded that the answers to these questions must be found in long-term research in the field of quantum communications."Nobody knows what 5G will be, but I suppose it has to be flexible," he said.

Hanzo is a fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the Institution of Engineering and Technology and EURASIP. He earned his degree in electronics in 1976 and his doctorate in 1983. During his 38-year career in telecommunications he has held various research and academic posts in Hungary, Germany and the UK. Since 1986 he has been with the School of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton, where he holds the chair in telecommunications.
