Mobile Network Evolution - 1G to 4G and Beyond
Speaker: Peter Shiret
Peter Shiret, a semi-retired mobile network integration engineer and trainer, will present a general overview of the evolutionary steps and network functional changes that have enabled our everyday use of a mobile, now more ubiquitous than any other communications device ever invented; with a glimpse of what these networks will enable next.
Peter’s career spans some 50 years. Within BT’s London Networks Organisation he was responsible for the testing and integration of an alternative digital switching system known as AXE10. Working for Ericsson he was network integration manager for the world’s first 1800Mhz GSM network (One2one).
He subsequently specialised as an integration consultant working on 3G mobile satellite systems for ICO, Inmarsat’s Regional Broadband Global Area Network. In 1999 he co-founded Flint Consulting Ltd, now a leading European ICT company, specialising in the design, configuration and integration of mobile network infrastructure.
