Pangea’s 5G Project has received a boost following the appointment of Dr Arslan Usman as System Architect.
With a Wireless Communications PhD Usman will unite the commercial and academic sides of the joint 5G Project launched by Pangea alongside Kingston University and Innovate UK.
The project's intention is to develop enhanced video compression and data transfer capabilities over 5G connectivity.
Usman completed his PhD in IT Convergence Engineering in South Korea, and is credited with over 30 academic publications within the Wireless Communications field, with a heavy focus on 5G wireless networks.
Dr Usman said: “My role is exciting – we have an ambitious agenda at hand—turning extensive research work from the world of 5G and beyond into user-centric, front-line devices and platforms.”
Pangea’s Ops Director Chris Romeika commented, “We welcome Arslan to the team as the first person to have hands-on, in-depth 5G experience from the lab environment.”
